Introduction

So I just can't help myself but make Tinder UI in Ionic Vue. Finally.

Vue.js v3 is fun to work with and doesn't take too long to get familiar with it. The best way to learn a framework is to make something, so I really learned it the hard way.

The look might be exactly the same as my previous Ionic Angular or Ionic React version, but under the hood there was a lot going on to achieve the same thing on Vue v3. True story.

What's in the package

  • Ionic Project source code: based on the folder structure generated with Ionic CLI
  • No Backend code: this is just the UI, not a fully functional app. Data is mostly static dummy unless mentioned, e.g GIF search uses the real Giphy API

Preview

Notes

1.Modify the default theme colors to match Tinder's colors in src/sass/variables.override.scss

:root {
  /** primary **/
  --ion-color-primary: #fd5068;
  --ion-color-primary-rgb: 253,80,104;
  --ion-color-primary-contrast: #ffffff;
  --ion-color-primary-contrast-rgb: 0,0,0;
  --ion-color-primary-shade: #df465c;
  --ion-color-primary-tint: #fd6277;
  ...

2.I personally like the look on iOS so I forced the theme to iOS mode. You can config that to suit your need

# in src/main.ts
const app = createApp(App)
  .use(IonicVue, {
    // force the theme to iOS mode
    mode: 'ios',
    backButtonText: '',
    swipeBackEnabled: false,
  })
  .use(router);

3.Dependencies

npm install --save axios swing node-sass sass-loader capacitor-resources

Build with capacitor

First of all, make sure that you can Run Locally (see the instruction above).

# build web asset (to folder www)
$ ionic build

# add platform (ios or android)
$ ionic capacitor add ios

# prepare app icons and splash images
$ npm run resources

# copy web assets into the native project
$ ionic capacitor copy ios

# open Xcode, then build the native app from there
$ ionic capacitor open ios

# OR run in live-reload mode
$ ionic capacitor run ios -l --external
