Full Featured Mobile HTML Framework For Building iOS & Android Apps

Getting Started

  • Getting Started Guide
  • Clone/download this repo
  • Start building your App from changing Kitchen Sink, or from a clean template from dist/ folder


Because Framework7 uses Ajax for navigation between pages you will need a server. So to make it work you should put dist folder (or Kitchen Sink) on a server. Or, as an option, you may use Gulp's server. Just run:

$ gulp server
  • Kitchen Sink will be available on http://localhost:3000/kitchen-sink/
  • Dist - on http://localhost:3000/dist/

Kitchen Sink

Framework7' JS and CSS files in Kitchen Sink are temporary linked to build/ to make development process easier on this stage. So to make it work you need to build Framework7 (see Build section) or to re-link JS and CSS files to dist/ folder.

Dist vs Build versions

On production use files (JS and CSS) only from dist/ folder, there will be the most stable versions, build/ folder is only for development purpose


Framework7 uses gulp to build a development (build) and dist versions.

First you need to have gulp-cli which you should install globally.

$ npm install --global gulp

Then install all dependencies, in repo's root:

$ npm install

And build development version of Framework7:

$ gulp build

The result is available in build/ folder.


After you have made build:

$ gulp dist

Distributable version will available in dist/ folder.

Custom build

You can build custom version of Framework7 with only required components/modules. For example, if we need to include only Accordion, Modals and Tabs modules in addition to Framework 7 core:

$ gulp custom -accordion,modals,tabs

After that you will find created custom/ folder with generated JS and CSS files. Here is the list of available additional modules:

  • cards
  • accordion
  • searchbar
  • messages
  • modals
  • swipeout
  • sortable
  • smart-select
  • virtual-list
  • pull-to-refresh
  • infinite-scroll
  • scroll-toolbars
  • tabs
  • fast-clicks
  • forms (means Ajax forms and forms storage)
  • push-state
  • swiper
  • photo-browser
  • picker
  • calendar
  • notifications


All changes should be commited to src/ files. Framework7 uses LESS for CSS compliations, and concatenated JS files (look at gulpfile.js for concat files order)

The project uses .editorconfig to define the coding style of each file. We recommend that you install the Editor Config extension for your preferred IDE.
