Onsen 2 SPA page

  • Hi, I develop using JQM and now I would like to try Onsen UI framework.
    I prefer developing using SPA, but I don’t know, how it creates using Onsen 2 beta.

    I copied this code from

    and paste to downloaded code from OnseUI website. If I run this code I can see

    Uncaught ReferenceError: myNavigator is not defined

    Can anybody help me with this?

    Hello! Welcome to Onsen UI community :)

    I think you are mixing things of Onsen UI 1.x (from that codepen example) with Onsen UI 2.0.
    var attribute only works if you include AngularJS in your project, but I think you are going with Vanilla JS, right?
    Remove var attributes and use id instead. To get the elements you can do document.querySelector('#myNavigatorID').pushPage(...) and so on.

    Hello Fran,

    thank you for your help, I would like to load Jquery library later. Your example works, now I am trying it with JQuery syntax.


  • @ales_stritesky Is there a specific reason you are wanting jQuery over vanilla?

  • Hi munsterlander,
    there are many reasons

    • I am lazy :blush:

    • I work with Jquery library for a long time

    • I’ve done many projects with this library

    • Jquery version > 2 is much more faster than older versions (in my opinion)

  • Hello @Fran-Diox!

    I am newbie in this field. I am experimenting with Onsen UI 2.0 on Monaca with the same sample app as OP. I got to solve the same “issue” before getting here, so I am able to to call pushPage. But: while the original location.href='angular/material.html' works document.getElementById('my-navigator').pushPage('angular/material.html') loads the page, but without applying angular template:
    I am most likely missing something trivial…
    Can you clear me up?
    Thanks in advance.
