NativeScript is how you build truly native mobile applications with Angular

Use the same Angular 2 you already know and love to create beautiful cross-platform truly native mobile applications with full support for your favorite libraries on npm and CocoaPods. With access to 100% of all native platform APIs via TypeScript (or modern Javascript), you never have to write a line of Java/Swift or Objective-C. Ever. Open source and backed by leading developer tools company, Telerik.

We've put together a handy tutorial to get you started.

Why bringing them together?

We believe that if a developer knows JavaScript, then they know enough to build real world applications that should not be limited to just the web. Angular 2 is fully de-coupled from browser APIs. That makes it possible for us to plug the NativeScript rendering engine in and leave the browser out. This means that it is now possible to build applications that run on the web, and as a native mobile application.

Getting started with NativeScript and Angular is easy.

Make sure your system has the prerequisites installed and then run the following command.

npm install -g nativescript

Our tutorial lays it all out for you.

Examples NativeScript

The “Examples NativeScript” sample shows how to build rich animations, as well as powerful graphs, charts, and lists with the NativeScript framework.

The robust set of animations are all all implemented in pure CSS. The graphs, charts, and lists are implemented with Telerik’s UI for NativeScript control suite, available in both free and paid editions.
 
This app is built with TypeScript. Each screen has a menu with options to view additional information about the screen as well as view the source code.
