Creating a Pokémon hybrid app with Angular 2 and Onsen UI

Angular 2 Pokedex App

A couple of months ago we published an article on how to create a Pokedex application using Angular 2. Since then, the stable version of Angular 2 has been released and we have released the RC version of our Angular 2 bindings.

In this article we will use Onsen UI 2 and Angular 2 to create a simple mobile Pokedex app. We will use some of the code from the previous article, but we will integrate it with Onsen UI. We will also take a look at the Monaca CLI, which is a great tool for creating, debugging, and developing apps with Angular 2 and Onsen UI.

Creating a Pokémon application using the Angular2 CLI

Angular 2 Pokedex App

We recently launched the beta of our Angular2 components for Onsen UI. Angular2 is a brand new framework and people are just starting to get familiar with it. We have decided to start a series of articles to help people get started with the framework. This article is the first in the series and will explain the very basics such as how to set up the environment and how to create and run a simple app.

We will be using the newly released Angular2 CLI tool since it makes it very easy to get started without having to fiddle with things like Webpack and setting up the testing environment and linting.

Since this is the summer of Pokémon, I decided to create a simple sample app that displays a list of Pokémon. The data is fetched from the public PokeAPI. The API is open source and available on GitHub. Please give it a star if you like it! :)

The current app is very simple, all you can do right now is see pictures of all the Pokémon and what their name and number is. We will expand this app in a later article to add more features such as routing and searching.
