onsen with express js

  • Since onsen ui is the framework for only front-end development, I suppose it would work with any backend language and language. Is it possible if I combine onsen with express js?

  • @iriekun Well, Onsen works with Node.JS as well as Monaca. I haven’t used Express, but as a layer over Node, theoretically it should work assuming Express hasn’t changed any underlying aspects of Node. Just my thoughts and I have used neither of those platforms before other than Monaca and Onsen - extensively.

  • If you expose your backend as RESTful service, the front-end would not know how it is implemented. Whether you implement it in PHP, Java, ASP.NET, Node.js (with Express), it should not care.

    To the front-end, they are just HTTP/HTTPS GET/POST calls.
