Initialize App

After we have our app layout now we need to mount Vue components and initialize the app. You can read about all possible Framework7 initialization parameters in appropriate Framework7 App Parameters section.

Let's look at our script:

// First of all, we need to initialize/enable Framework7 Vue plugin:
// We need to pass Framework7Vue plugin and Framework7 as an arguments to Vue.use method
Vue.use(Framework7Vue, Framework7);

// Init Vue App
new Vue({
  // App Root Element
  el: '#app',
  // Init Framework7. All Framework7 parameters should be passed in "framework7" property, e.g.:
  framework7: {
    // Array with app routes
    routes: [...]
    // App Name
    name: 'My App',
    // App id
    id: 'com.myapp.test',
    // Enable swipe panel
    panel: {
      swipe: 'left',
    // ...
  // App root data
  data: {
    // ....
  // App root methods
  methods: {
    // ....

If you use Webpack, Rollup or another bundler with ES-next modules support, it may look like:

// Import Vue
import Vue from 'vue'

// Import F7 Bundle
import Framework7 from 'framework7/dist/framework7.esm.bundle.js'

// Import F7-Vue Plugin Bundle (with all F7 components registered)
import Framework7Vue from 'framework7-vue/dist/framework7-vue.esm.bundle.js'

// Import Routes
import Routes from './routes.js'

// Init F7-Vue Plugin
Vue.use(Framework7Vue, Framework7)

// Init App
new Vue({
  el: '#app',
  framework7: {
    routes: Routes
  // ...

In the examples above:

  • we pass Framework7 parameters to the Vue root component's framework7 property;
  • element passed in Vue's el parameter will be used as Framework7 root element

We also must specify array with routes (if we have navigation between pages in the app). Check out information about Vue Component Extensions router and routes in the Navigation Router section.
