  • How to analyze the app package and native visual UI tree of a NativeScript application

    And what’s in there actually?

    Applications written with web means such as JavaScript and CSS are usually taken as web or hybrid. With NativeScript we enable these web means allowing you to write in your favorite language (JavaScript or TypeScript - the choice is yours) achieving great, fast-performing native apps. But, in the dawn of NativeScript and even now when it’s v1, we have been encountering non-believers who wonder “Are the NativeScript apps real native apps as they execute on the device? Or, they are hybrid after all :)”

    With this blog post I would like to reveal the truth for the non-believers by dissecting a NativeScript app at runtime and displaying what objects are actually created and executed on iOS and Android. Well, I can tell you from now - ​these objects are the native UI components of the respective platform. But if you still don’t believe me, read on.
