  • Using Babel in NativeScript Apps

    The NativeScript 1.5 release introduced first-class support for languages which transpile to JavaScript. In plain English, if your language of choice generates JavaScript, it can now be used to create NativeScript apps. The NativeScript CLI has integrated support for TypeScript, Babel, and CoffeeScript (here’s the full list of languages we support), but if you want to use another language, just create a plugin following the template of the existing Babel one. The upcoming ES7 language edition has the async/await feature which makes the UI and networking code a breeze to write and support. I was very eager to experiment with async code in a NativeScript app, and decided to try it by implementing a simple app. I decided to mirror the cuteness sample. But my project was going for something more awesome, and that's why it follows /r/hardcoreaww sub-reddit instead.
