Monaca x Onsen UI Community Forum Release

Monaca x Onsen Community

The new version of Onsen UI is coming and we are paving the way. We are happy to announce that the new Monaca x Onsen UI Community Forum has been released! Many developers have requested a forum for Onsen UI and Monaca Tools where they could ask questions, share their progress, get community feedback and meet other developers. We hope you like it and join our brand new community!


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.

Preview! Vue.js support for Onsen UI

Onsen UI and Vue.js

Vue.js is a frontend framework for creating reactive components. It provides a very simple but powerful API. Its simplicity makes it very easy to get started writing apps.

Onsen UI is a collection of components for hybrid apps. With Onsen UI you can easily create beautiful mobile user interfaces. We have just released a preview version of our binding library for Vue.js which makes it possible to integrate the Onsen UI components in Vue.js apps.


Angular 2 for Onsen UI is here! 🚀

Onsen UI for Angular 2

It’s time to unveil the beta version of our Angular 2 components for Onsen UI. We have worked hard to bring you these components and hope you are as excited as we are!

Angular 2 has come a long way since it was released at ng-conf last year and is shaping up to be a powerful framework, both for creating traditional web apps and hybrid apps. We are proud to make our own contribution to the growing ecosystem of Angular 2.


Onsen UI Angular 2 Components coming soon!

Onsen UI bindings

Recently it may have looked like we’ve been focusing mainly on React, but we have also worked hard on bringing you components and directives for Angular 2. Next week they will be available through both npm and Monaca CLI.

Onsen 1.x was based on Angular 1, but with Onsen 2 we decided to take a different approach. We separated the core logic and styles, so that it can be used with any framework. We also started working on wrappers, so that it can be used in a more natural way in the most popular frameworks.

AngularJS 1 have been supported for quite some time already. Recently we released React Components and next week it’s time for the long awaited Angular 2. We are very excited about this release and we hope you are as well!

We can’t wait to see the amazing apps you create when combining the rich collection of components of Onsen UI with the power of Angular 2.

Announcing the Onsen UI 2.0 Beta

Announcing Onsen UI 2.0 Beta

After several months of hard work we are happy to announce the release of the Onsen UI 2.0 beta version. This release comes packed with new features and beautiful UI components. We have created a webpage solely dedicated to the Onsen UI 2.0 beta, complete with documentation and design patterns.

One of the new features we are most excited about is the introduction of Material Design into Onsen UI. Material Design lets you easily create a native-like experience for Android users. Of course, the original flat theme is still included so you can now easily create apps that look good and native on both iOS and Android.

Although this is a completely new version of Onsen UI, we realize that a lot of users have apps made using Onsen UI 1.x and want to upgrade. For this reason we want to make migration as easy and painless as humanly possible. We provide a binding library for AngularJS that is almost 100% backwards compatible.


Material Design in Onsen UI

Onsen UI 2.0 Material Design

We have some exciting news for all of you developing hybrid apps for Android! Onsen UI 2.0 is adding Material Design!

Since Onsen UI hybrid app framework can be used to create apps for iOS and Android, it makes sense to provide native-like UI components for both platforms. That’s why we are currently implementing Material Design, adding new components alongside the current iOS based ones.

Many users have requested the Material Design support. We’ve listened to those voices and are working hard to make it available for you as soon as possible. Material Design is currently being implemented in parallell with Onsen UI 2.0, so get ready for native-like Android components included in the next major version.


Onsen UI Roadmap: New release and Onsen 2.0

We would like to give you an update on what we’ve been working on lately and what we have in store for the future.
