    Async/await allows developers to write asynchronous code as if they were synchronous. Support for async/await in TypeScript is available when targeting ES6 but down compiling to ES5 is yet to be implemented.

And here is how to use the nightly tsc and async/await in {N}.

  • Angular 2 web and mobile demo app, using Kendo UI and NativeScript

    With the recent Angular 2 public release the write once, run everywhere is no longer a myth or something that we should try to avoid due to all the complications that were involved previously. Now we have a framework that does this for us. When you combine Angular 2 with NativeScript you have a complete story that allows you to share code that runs NATIVELY on the target platforms - web and mobile. Support for desktop is planned for NativeScript as well.
