we love the nav drawer - does anyone know of a way (plugin) that allows us to provide the nav drawer in the Moodle Mobile app?
What is it exactly that you'd like to see in the app from the nav drawer? There is currently a menu that doesn't do exactly the same, but it shares some functionality.
I don't think it'd be possible to have the same in the app because we have a different screen size and the interactions with a mobile device are very different. But maybe if we dig into what you like so much we can think of some improvements in the app .
The app is built with different technology than the web (it uses Ionic Framework). So it isn't possible to use anything from the Boost theme.
Everything in the app has been built "from scratch" (meaning that we haven't taken it from Moodle). And from a design point of view, this is a good thing because it allows us to make an experience tailored to mobile devices. But it comes with some trade-offs, for example that not all features in web are available in mobile (and not all features in mobile are available in web).
For the navigation drawer in particular, we already have something similar:
But I know it's not the same, that's why I was asking what do you like from the nav drawer that we're missing in the app.
How about if like me, I want the Navigation Bar on Tablets to be at the bottom If its (tablet) orientation is in a vertical mode, not landscape?
unfortunately it isn't possible to configure that. Tabs are displayed at the side if the device has a width and height higher than 576px. It is implemented like this to prevent tabs moving if the user rotates the device.
If you still think the behaviour should be different, feel free to open an issue in the tracker.
Thanks a bunch, Dani
I managed to align navbar at the bottom in portrait via the core code and results are amazing on the emulators but not the actual physical tablets don't reflect that change. So I still be looking towards custom css from the server?
