  • Splash Screen For Your Android Applications

    A common user experience for an application is to display a loading (splash) screen while it is initializing. Building our Telerik Next conference application, we wanted to display such a screen. While trivial for iOS, it turned there is no built-in mechanism in Android for achieving this functionality.

  • Build a Native Mobile App with NativeScript and Sitefinity CMS

    Sitefinity CMS is a powerful user-friendly .NET CMS product from Telerik. The great thing about Sitefinity is that it’s meticulously designed to not feel like a .NET CMS (You know the feel I mean…). Moreover you get to choose to develop using Pure Clean MVC, old school ASP.Net WebForms, or a patented hybrid of the two methods.

  • Answering NativeScript Beta webinar questions

    The last NativeScript webinar had a record-setting number of attendees. As such, we also had a record-setting 1000+ questions asked during the webinar!! Now, as you can guess we could not answer 1000+ questions in a couple of minutes at the end of the webinar.

    So, we read all 1000+ questions post-webinar and select a handful of them to be answer in this blog post. After reading the questions, I believe many of them will be beneficial to the entire NativeScript community and not just the individual that posted the question during the live webinar.

  • NativeScript open source sample - Tasks

    We know how important it is for a new framework to have samples, so you will be able to find several good examples of open source applications built with NativeScript in our Github organization. Open http://github.com/nativescript and search for repositories named after the following pattern "sample-SAMPLE_NAME". All the samples are licensed under the BSD license.

    This is the first article from a series of articles we are planning to release as we progress with the application implementation. The full source code of the application is here: http://github.com/nativescript/sample-Tasks.

  • NativeScript First Public Beta Release is Now Available!

    With NativeScript you can use your JavaScript and CSS skills to write native mobile applications for iOS, Android and very soon WindowsPhone. There is no WebView involved in rendering the app, as the UI is rendered by the native platform's rendering engine. Because of that the, app's entire UX is native.

  • How NativeScript Works

    NativeScript is a runtime that lets you build native iOS, Android, and (soon) Windows Universal apps using JavaScript code. NativeScript has a lot of cool features, such as two-way data binding between JavaScript objects and native UI components, and a CSS implementation for native apps. But my favorite feature, and the subject of this article, is NativeScript’s mechanism for giving you direct access to native platform APIs.
