Onsen UI 1.1 Adds Support for jQuery and Eliminates AngularJS Complexity

Huge Advantage in Performance and Ease-of-Use Compared to jQuery Mobile

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/22/14 -- Monaca, the HTML5 hybrid app development platform, is releasing Onsen UI 1.1 with Global Object support. Onsen UI is a custom elements-based HTML5 UI framework for building mobile User Interfaces for PhoneGap/Cordova. Global Object support essentially hides the complexity of AngularJS and at the same time makes popular libraries like jQuery available. So the millions of developers who know JQuery can use Onsen UI to build fast mobile interfaces.

"Onsen UI 1.1 provides the power of modern HTML5 technology without requiring deep understanding of the underlying complexity," said Masahiro Tanaka, CEO of Monaca. "With our new jQuery support, developers will have even more options when using Onsen UI to create world-class hybrid apps. This is especially useful for developers and designers who desire a more lightweight solution than AngularJS, or who want to increase the performance of their existing apps without a fundamental change."

Onsen UI 1.1 also allows developers access to Onsen CSS Components, a free resource of UI templates and theme roller functionality.

Onsen UI 1.1 supports Android 2.3 and up, iOS 6 and up, and now Google Chrome and Safari. Onsen UI is built on the stack of Topcoat, AngularJS, HammerJS, and Font Awesome. Onsen UI itself is free and available under the Apache License.
