Nectar mainly uses Framework7 Core v7 for the UI and UX. Besides this, many important features are implemented on the top of it so that it can be used to create production-ready apps.
The main features of Nectar are:
Platform Agnostic UI & UX — Nectar uses Google's Material Design for Android, Apple's Cupertino Design for iOS, and Framework7's Aurora Design for Desktops.
Multiple Devices & Screen Resolutions — Nectar has responsive layout supporting devices with different sizes and screen resolutions – mobiles, tablets, and desktops.
Multiple Navigation Patterns — Nectar allows users to navigate within the app using two different navigation patterns – Sidebar and Tabbar.
Unlimited Colors & Dark Mode — You can style your app by choosing from 19 pre-built theme colors or apply any custom color matching your brand, with support for both Light & Dark modes.
Internationalization & RTL Support — Build your app for users around the world by localizing your user interface in various languages.
- DOM Manipulation (Experience with jQuery can be useful as Framework7 comes with its own jQuery-like library — Dom7)
- XMLHttpRequest / AJAX / Fetch API
No, Nectar does not come with any Backend or CMS. It is a Frontend solution only. However, if you already have a Backend or CMS and if it has a REST API, then you can use that REST API to develop a Frontend Client using Nectar. That's what Nectar is used for.
We have provided a basic WordPress REST API integration in Nectar. You can use this as a reference for integrating your own REST API with Nectar.
Nectar is a Single Page Application (SPA). You cannot mix the frontend and backend code like traditional websites. Your backend must provide REST API which can then be consumed in Nectar using XMLHttpRequest (AJAX) or Fetch API.
No, You cannot use/convert Nectar as/into installable WordPress/WooCommerce theme, but you can use WordPress/WooCommerce as a backend or headless CMS for Nectar.
Nectar provides basic integration for WordPress REST API. It means that you can use all those features of WordPress which are available via its REST API.
But this does not necessarily mean that all of the features of your WordPress site will work, especially the plugins. However, if the plugins also support REST API, then they can be used in Nectar.
Yes, Nectar has responsive layout. It adapts to mobile, tablet and desktop resolutions very well.
No, Nectar does not support and has not been tested with any Drag & Drop Editors. You will need to use Code Editors such as VSCode or Brackets to edit Nectar.
We have not tested Nectar with any other frameworks. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that Nectar will work perfectly well with them.
