Use of ActionSheet (and other controllers) without AngularJS


#1

Hi there,

I’m new to the framework and really like the look of the controllers that are available. I am currently using the framework’s components ontop of my BackboneJS application. I was wondering whether it is possible to use the controllers available (such as ActionSheet) in a non-Angular project?

Thanks in advance,

Jonny

It is possible, yes, but it’s not a use case we are optimizing for at the moment.

We have been going back and forth about the framework support underneath, and we’ve kind of settled on being opinionated about using Angular for building Ionic apps. If we consider that a lot of apps will be built from scratch, and we have lots of examples and tutorials using Angular which is a high quality framework, then it’s okay for us to settle on Angular being required to use Ionic components.

We are going to keep evaluating that position though.

Thanks for the reply, looks like it might be worth me re-basing my app on Angular then as its only early days for my project.

Keep up the great work!
