For example, I’ve been examining the list of options available as well this afternoon and I was leaning towards Onsen UI since it looked like it had the option of displaying things in either iOS or Android styles which would be a plus, but I really just want to create a basic PHP web app, but utilize Onsen UI for the frontend look/feel.
So I’m reading up on the Getting Started page for the Onsen UI Kitchen Sink and I do have node installed on my PC, but needed to install yarn too, then I got that installed and ran the Kitchen Sink in dev mode, but there are so many JS packages/dependencies that I’m not sure what I need to include if I want to start fresh and start with a simple HTML page and start bringing in my PHP data into. (Basically what I want to do is create a login form, which I’ll go ahead and use PHP and the adLDAP library to authenticate users against and then from there I’ll want to have as a starting point a simple form which will submit a request that will talk with one of our backend databases to pull in some data…I can do it with PHP right now, but it won’t look very native, so I was hoping I could create the HTML interface with Onsen UI to help make it prettier). I don’t think any of the other frameworks would necessarily be easier in this regard…last year I had used Vue 1.0 and built a non-mobile interface and used the grid example to create a nice sortable table, but it’d be really nice to be able to create an interface that has a more native app look/feel.
Any suggestions are welcome for a PHP-centric developer with not too much time on his hands!
