[Solved] [v2] Routes work, but fail once in iOS app

I have cordova based framework7 v2 app.

Routes work when:

  • in a browser (dev machine – win 10)
  • in a browser (dev machine – macOS HS)
  • in a browser, running on macOS simulator browser

Routes Fail:

  • iOS Compiled App

There are multiple Links on the index.html page, 3 's going to index.html, motd.html and search.html. None of them work in App. I have 3 other links, which open a popup and 2 popovers – they work. It doesn’t matter the location, navbar main body, sidebar etc.

Am I missing something in my config or a security thing?

I have a simple route:

routes = [
path: ‘/’,
url: ‘./index.html’,
path: ‘/search/’,
url: ‘./pages/search.html’,
path: ‘(.*)’,
url: ‘./pages/404.html’,

with popups and popovers tied to links as well.

// Dom7
var $$ = Dom7;
// Framework7 App main instance
var MyApp = new Framework7({
root: ‘#app’, // App root element
id: ‘com.zzz.zzz’,
name: ‘zzzzzz’,
theme: ‘ios’,

// App routes
routes: routes
// Init/Create main view
var mainView = MyApp.views.create(’.view-main’, {
url: ‘/’

browser 5.0.3
ios 4.5.4

causes the problem, local xhr requests don’t work with it. Try this one instead https://github.com/ionic-team/cordova-plugin-ionic-webview

Awesome, that nailed it. Thanks!
