Building a Calculator App with Redux and Onsen UI

Redux and Onsen UI

There are many frameworks and concepts around in the JavaScript world. In today’s blog post we are going to write a pure mobile JavaScript application with Onsen UI and Redux, which is a very small but powerful library that enables to write JavaScript applications in a conceptually different way.

Redux is inspired by Flux, which was developed by Facebook. Unlike Flux, Redux is quite flexible and does not require any specific infrastructure like GraphQL. We will use Redux in combination with Onsen UI to build a simple Calculator mobile app. One of the nicest things about this app is that it will look native, both on Android and iOS, due to Onsen’s autostyle feature.

Navigation and Tabs in the Onsen UI React Extension

We just released docs for the React components: Check them out!

As seen in the previous blog post we have just announced a React extension for Onsen UI 2.0. It will provide all the Onsen UI custom elements in the form of React components.

In this article we will take a look at how some of the more complex components are used. Since this extension is still in development we would like to get all the feedback we can so we can refine the APIs and iron out all the creases.
