  • NativeScript 1.4 announcement

    NativeScript 1.4 is here. Please read the upgrade instructions.

    What sets this release apart from the previous ones is that it reflects more than ever the way we think about the product. Once we deliver a certain set of functionality, we focus on perfecting the existing framework. You will not see new features baked into the latest version. Instead we polished many functionalities in response to users feedback. This is the result of working with a lot of developers and helping them deliver apps to their clients. Listening and responding to real developer feedback was always a core value for Telerik as a company and I’m sure you will be happy to work with this latest version of NativeScript. NativeScript is now more stable, more polished and battle tested framework. You can use NativeScript 1.4 in your production environment for building applications.

  • Using NativeScript Animations

    Animations were the single most requested feature in our idea portal, so I think it's safe to say that animations landing in our 1.3 release was kind of a big deal. Now that animations are here, let's look at how to use NativeScript's new animation APIs, and how to create some practical effects you can add to your apps.

  • Running the NativeScript Runtime for iOS on Apple TV

    Last week, amongst many new things, Apple announced an update to the Apple TV. It now runs on a new operating system named tvOS and includes an app store allowing third-party apps. These apps can be developed using many frameworks and concepts quite similar to iOS ones (Foundation, UIKit and CoreGraphics), but also some new APIs like TVServices.

    We were eager to find out if it was possible to run NativeScript on this new platform.

  • NativeScript 1.3 release is live

    NativeScript 1.3 is now officially available for download! If you have an app using 1.2 or an older version please read the upgrade instructions.

    With this release we added more stability, more speed and several major features to NativeScript. NativeScript framework is now more mature and we are sure that NativeScript is your best bet for your mobile strategy. To be inline with the latest announcements from Apple,we do also support tvOS, and we would like to thank the Apple team for including all the tech we needed as a part of tvOS! A blog post is coming next week on the #tvOS topic.

  • Using CocoaPods is a piece of cake with NativeScript 1.3.0

    NativeScript 1.3.0 is already here packed and stacked with a bunch of improvements. One of these improvements is the ease of use of CocoaPods. For those of you who don’t know CocoaPods, ​it is the dependency manager for Swift and Objective-C project. It allows you to easily take an open source GitHub repo and add a reference to the library that it produces.

    With NativeScript 1.3.0, you can easily take a pod and use it for the iOS part of your NativeScript projects working only with the NativeScript CLI, without touching Xcode. What it more, a pod can be easily turned into a NativeScript npm plugin.
