Onsen UI for Vue lets developers create mobile apps in Vue style
Monaca, a HTML5 hybrid app development platform, announced its stable release of “Onsen UI for Vue”. Onsen UI is its open source UI framework for building hybrid mobile apps (Cordova/PhoneGap) and progressive web apps. 

Monaca released Onsen UI v2 in September 2016 with a significant architectural change. Onsen UI v2 has become a JavaScript framework independent, Web Components based UI framework by eliminating its previous dependency to AngularJS and jQuery. While keeping its core as pure JavaScript, it opted to provide tight integration with popular JS frameworks as bindings. So far, it has supported AngularJS, Angular (formerly known as Angular 2), React and Meteor.

Onsen UI adds its official Vue bindings. 


“Vue is a great framework that is growing quickly, even faster than Angular and React in terms of GitHub stars. While we offered preview version, we’ve got a lot of request to officially support it. We are excited that Vue developers can now easily create mobile apps using Onsen UI for Vue, in a way that’s familiar to them,” says Masa Tanaka, founder and CEO of Monaca.

JavaScript framework landscape is ever changing. Decoupling UI from it allows Onsen UI to support new JS frameworks quickly and intuitively, minimizing developers’ relearning in building mobile apps. Onsen UI for Vue follows Vue’s design concepts such as reactive API and can be used with Vue CLI in addition to its own CLI and other toolings.

“We are developers ourselves. Our goal is to make UI framework and toolings easy to use and future-proof for fellow developers,” says Masa Tanaka.
