Framework7 - Template7 Pages


Advertisements


Description

Template7 is a mobile-first JavaScript template engine with handlebars.js like syntax. It is ultra lightweight and blazing-fast default template engine in Framework7.

First, we need to pass the following parameter on app initialization that renders all Ajax and dynamic pages as Template7 template −

var myApp = new Framework7 ({
   template7Pages: true // enable Template7 rendering for Ajax and Dynamic pages
});
S.No Template7 Pages Usage & Description
1 Templates/Pages Data

You can pass the required data/context for specific pages by specifying all pages data in template7Data parameter, sent on initializing an App.

2 Pass Custom Context

Framework7 allows you to pass custom context to any dynamic page or any loaded Ajax.

3 Load Templates Directly

You can render and load templates on fly as dynamic pages.

4 URL Query

If you are using Template7 for rendering Ajax pages, its context always will be extended with special property url_query.

Example

The following example provides the links, which displays the user information such as user details, user likes, etc. when you click on those links.
