Disclaimler: First of all, let me state clear that I am not involved into the Framework7 project. I am not getting paid for this post. This is just my honest, personal opinion as a mobile developer.
The first framework I used when I started mobile development was jQueryMobile. I was used to jQuery coming from Desktop programming so I thought: “Hey, it says jQuery, so I guess it must be good”. It sucked balls, just like any other Framework I tried like KendoUI or SenchaTouch. They either sucked regarding performance, sucked about look & feel or simply sucked monkey ass ballz! Excuse me for my language but for years I couldn’t believe that it was true that there is no HTML5-framework that can deliver anything close to a native app, so I always believed that it simply wasn’t possible.
And then I discovered Framework7
The biggest problem I see with Framework7 is that it doesn’t get enough attention. For years I didn’t hear anything about it and when I talk to other devs they never saw it before until I show em and they’re all completely blown away.
Also, if you search for “best html5 mobile framework” on Google you will get shitloads of so called comparison websites like “Top 10 mobile frameworks” and barely I see F7 mentioned or even find their main website in the search results. So, if you like F7 and you’d like to support, go tweet about it right now!
I just hope that developers haven’t given up on HTML5 for apps yet. Since the hype of Facebook’s React framework many people seem to transition there.
Oh, boy I need to go back coding. This is so much fun <3
