SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Sep 15, 2016) - Monaca, the HTML5 mobile app development company, has released Onsen UI 2.0. Onsen UI provides a full-stack ecosystem for developing beautiful cross-platform mobile apps. Onsen UI apps have shipped on over 100 million mobile devices.

With version 2.0, Onsen UI can now be used with any popular Javascript framework, providing a framework-agnostic development environment as JavaScript development continues to expand from web to mobile platforms. Onsen UI supports pure JavaScript, AngularJS, Angular 2, React, Vue.js, and Meteor.

According to Stack Overflow, JavaScript is now the most popular way to develop full-stack, frontend, and back-end applications. Onsen UI is helping to convert these developers into mobile developers.

"Onsen UI is the key to making JavaScript the best choice for mobile, for both app and web. JavaScript enabled hybrid apps will help you make the jump into mobile app development and build your resume quickly," said Masa Tanaka, CEO of Monaca and head of Onsen UI open source project. "Mobile app development with Onsen UI can save you time and effort compared to traditional Android and iPhone SDKs. Onsen UI provides incredible benefits for new mobile developers."

"Tools for developing sharp, useful mobile apps are a key part of any developer toolkit. A framework-agnostic full-stack tool like Onsen UI can go a long way in helping developers build mobile apps that matter," said Brian LeRoux, Creator of PhoneGap/Apache Cordova. "The mobile web is transitioning to hugely diversified technologies and developers need to support that demand."
