App HTML Layout

First thing we should do for our App is to create index.html file with app's skeleton.

Basic iOS App Layout

First of all, let's look on the most basic layout for iOS theme

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <!-- Required meta tags-->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, minimum-scale=1, user-scalable=no, minimal-ui">
    <meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">
    <meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-status-bar-style" content="black">
    <!-- Your app title -->
    <title>My App</title>
    <!-- Path to Framework7 Library CSS, iOS Theme -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/framework7.ios.min.css">
    <!-- Path to Framework7 color related styles, iOS Theme -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/framework7.ios.colors.min.css">
    <!-- Path to your custom app styles-->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/my-app.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <!-- Status bar overlay for full screen mode (PhoneGap) -->
    <div class="statusbar-overlay"></div>
    <!-- Views -->
    <div class="views">
      <!-- Your main view, should have "view-main" class -->
      <div class="view view-main">
        <!-- Top Navbar-->
        <div class="navbar">
          <div class="navbar-inner">
            <!-- We need cool sliding animation on title element, so we have additional "sliding" class -->
            <div class="center sliding">Awesome App</div>
          </div>
        </div>
        <!-- Pages container, because we use fixed-through navbar and toolbar, it has additional appropriate classes-->
        <div class="pages navbar-through toolbar-through">
          <!-- Page, "data-page" contains page name -->
          <div data-page="index" class="page">
            <!-- Scrollable page content -->
            <div class="page-content">
              <p>Page content goes here</p>
              <!-- Link to another page -->
              <a href="about.html">About app</a>
            </div>
          </div>
        </div>
        <!-- Bottom Toolbar-->
        <div class="toolbar">
          <div class="toolbar-inner">
            <!-- Toolbar links -->
            <a href="#" class="link">Link 1</a>
            <a href="#" class="link">Link 2</a>
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
    <!-- Path to Framework7 Library JS-->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/framework7.min.js"></script>
    <!-- Path to your app js-->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/my-app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html> 

As you may see the layout is pretty simple. The main point is that you should link Framework7's CSS in the <head> and JS files in the end of <body>.

You can read more about statusbar overlay, views, navbar, toolbar, pages, panels and other components in appropriate sections.

Basic Android/Material App Layout

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <!-- Required meta tags-->
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, maximum-scale=1, minimum-scale=1, user-scalable=no, minimal-ui">
    <meta name="apple-mobile-web-app-capable" content="yes">
    <!-- Color theme for statusbar -->
    <meta name="theme-color" content="#2196f3">
    <!-- Your app title -->
    <title>My App</title>
    <!-- Path to Framework7 Library CSS, Material Theme -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/framework7.material.min.css">
    <!-- Path to Framework7 color related styles, Material Theme -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/framework7.material.colors.min.css">
    <!-- Path to your custom app styles-->
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/my-app.css">
  </head>
  <body>
    <!-- Views -->
    <div class="views">
      <!-- Your main view, should have "view-main" class -->
      <div class="view view-main">
        <!-- Pages container, because we use fixed navbar and toolbar, it has additional appropriate classes-->
        <div class="pages navbar-fixed toolbar-fixed">
          <!-- Page, "data-page" contains page name -->
          <div data-page="index" class="page">
 
            <!-- Top Navbar. In Material theme it should be inside of the page-->
            <div class="navbar">
              <div class="navbar-inner">
                <div class="center">Awesome App</div>
              </div>
            </div>
 
            <!-- Toolbar. In Material theme it should be inside of the page-->
            <div class="toolbar">
              <div class="toolbar-inner">
                <!-- Toolbar links -->
                <a href="#" class="link">Link 1</a>
                <a href="#" class="link">Link 2</a>
              </div>
            </div>
 
            <!-- Scrollable page content -->
            <div class="page-content">
              <p>Page content goes here</p>
              <!-- Link to another page -->
              <a href="about.html">About app</a>
            </div>
          </div>
        </div>
      </div>
    </div>
    <!-- Path to Framework7 Library JS-->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/framework7.min.js"></script>
    <!-- Path to your app js-->
    <script type="text/javascript" src="path/to/my-app.js"></script>
  </body>
</html> 

As you may see the Material layout is almost the same. It just has different CSS files related to Material theme, and a bit different page structure where Navbar and Toolbar are inside of the page

Initialize App

Now when we have basic template, we need to initialize our app in my-app.js.
