Onsen UI with Vue 2 will soon be possible!

Onsen UI and Vue.js

Vue.js is a lightweight library used to create user interfaces. Its powerful but still intuitive API makes it very easy to learn. Vue has long been a favorite for us in the Onsen UI team and we know that some of our users are already creating apps using Vue and Onsen UI. We are happy to announce that we are currently working on adding better support.

Vue 2 was recently released and it looks very good. The API for creating components will stay almost the same as in the previous version, which makes migration very easy, but internally a lot of changes has been made to make the library more efficient.

Especially for those who don’t have a large background in web programming, deciding which framework works better for them could be a tedious task.

Have you already chosen your framework to work with Onsen UI? For those who still don’t have a preference, in this article we show how to make a simple Hello World app with some of the existing alternatives: Vanilla JavaScript, AngularJS, Angular 2, React, Vue.js and Knockout.js.
