Can Ionic work with Jquery?


#1

Hi I am using Ionic framework in Visual studio Apache cordova.
Can I write the code using Jquery or it has to be AngularJS ?

Also, much smaller questions,
How can I make Ionic support Hebrew language? Currently, it’s not recognizable.

Thanks.

You would have an easier time using jQuery with Ionic 2 than with Ionic 1, but in general, with either version, anything that can reasonably be done in Angular should be. If what you want to use jQuery for is “there is this specific plugin that is really complicated and has no Angular wrapper”, that makes sense. If it’s more “I don’t know Angular and am just more familiar with jQuery”, you are in for a lot of pain and frustration and will end up fighting the framework.
