I have spent days looking into mobile HTML UI frameworks. There are several options for Angular, but I want to stay with Ember. Here are the options I see :
- use ionic.js and ionic.css and not the angular files. Then I would have to build my own ember components to work like the existing Angular ones
- Ratchet, but is a bit basic and assumes no framework
- Bootstrap or Zurb Foundation for Apps. Not very mobile like, performance not mobile optimised?
- OnsenUI - an interesting new option especially since they removed the dependence on Angular. Its basically WebComponents wrapping TopCoat, a very lean and fast mobile framework.
I’m thinking that Onsen would “just work” with Ember eg. see http://onsen.io/guide/overview.html#UsingOnsenUIwithjQueryorwithanyJSframeworks but I would like some confirmation from people more familiar with these things.
Any comments ?
