Here is episode 2 of my vlog on PhoneGap Day EU 2017 featuring interesting interviews with speaker Kerri Shotts, Adobe PhoneGap team member Simon MacDonald and Ionic team lead Adam Bradley. Hope you like it :-)
There is no such thing as the “best framework”. You have to decide each time based on the requirements and assets of your project which tool is the right one.
In this new video I will explain the differences between Ionic and Framework7 as well as try to suggest when to use which framework.
PhoneGap development with VueJS and Framework7 seems to gain more traction lately and there are 2 new templates that help you get started easily. One made by Adobe’s Holly Schinsky and the other one by Oğuz Özcan. In this post I want to introduce how to kick off a project with both templates easily.
Holly Schinsky’s template
To download, check her Github page.
This template is based on the official static template of the Framework7 + VueJS plugin project. To get started, make sure, you have PhoneGap/Cordova installed and run:
$ phonegap create myVueApp --template https://github.com/hollyschinsky/phonegap-template-framework7-vue $ cd myVueApp $ phonegap serve or $ open www/index.html
$ cordova create myVueApp --template https://github.com/hollyschinsky/phonegap-template-framework7-vue $ cd myVueApp $ open www/index.html
Oğuz Özcan’s template
To download, check his Github page.
This one is Cordova-only, so make sure you have it installed:
npm i cordova -g
To kick of the project, simply do:
com.example.projectname ProjectClassName --template cordova-template-framework7-vue-webpack
Important: ProjectClassName should be written without spaces.
Do you have additional templates and boilerplates you can suggest? Let us know in the comment :D
In my last post I showed you how to kick-off a new project with Framework7, VueJS and Webpack. So, I thought in the next video I could show you a real-world example on how to create an app based on these technologies.
In this screencast we will create a Twitter client for iOS and Android that will let you search for tweets through the official Twitter REST API.
Keep in mind that this is the first episode of a series since we won’t be able to create a full Twitter app in only one episode. Instead, we will cover one topic in each video. The series topics will probably look something like this:
- Setup project + Call Twitter search API methods (This video)
- Authenticate users using oauth + Render personal timeline
- Post tweets, retweet and replies
- Deploy as native app using Phonegap/Cordova
Enjoy the video series! :-)
