Creating Cross-platform Native Mobile Apps with NativeScript

There are three primary ways to build apps for mobile screens: Web, Hybrid and Native. While web and hybrid apps share many of the same core concepts and programming languages, building native apps has always required different tools and languages. Until now. NativeScript is an open source framework that re-uses the skills of the web developer (JavaScript/CSS) to create 100% native apps that run on iOS, Android and Windows. In this session, you’ll learn about the NativeScript project, how NativeScript apps work and see how easy it is to begin building cross-platform native apps using JavaScript and CSS.

Going NativeScript with Dan Wilson

NativeScript is an open source way to build native mobile applications using Javascript and CSS. Dan Wilson will guide us through this adventure.\ Come learn how you can use your existing skills to develop cross platform native applications without writing any Objective-C, Swift or Java.

The session will walk through the benefits of writing apps with NativeScript as well as some live coding. Read more

Building mobile apps with Angular2 and NativeScript

NativeScript is a free and open source JavaScript framework for building native iOS, Android, and Windows Phone apps. Add to that Angular 2.0 with TypeScript and you will get a truly amazing combination. But I know what you’re thinking: another way of building apps? What makes NativeScript special? Here are a few cool things:
  • Direct access to native APIs—no plugins required. Want to create a file on Android? Run new java.io.File()—in JavaScript!
  • Completely native performance through the use of a JavaScript bridge natively available on all three mobile platforms.
  • Cross-platform libraries for common use cases. Need to call a JSON API? Run http.getJSON
  • Style native apps using CSS. Yep, that’s actually a thing.

Curious about how it all works? Come learn! Architectures will be explained; apps will be built; and fun will be had by all.

NativeScript: The Future of Mobile App Development

This session will talk about NativeScript, a new technology that allows for cross-platform native mobile app development using JavaScript. For web developers, this allows them to create iOS and Android apps with the full native experience users expect. For existing mobile app developers, NativeScript allows them to consolidate their codebase by sharing code across mobile device platforms, which enables a more rapid and nimble development cycle.
The session will walk through the benefits of writing apps with NativeScript over conventional methods, and feature live coding demos to demonstrate it in action. Read more

Introduction to NativeScript

NativeScript is a free and open source JavaScript framework for building native iOS, Android, and (soon) Windows Phone apps. But I know what you’re thinking: another way of building apps? What makes NativeScript special? Here are a few cool things:

  - Direct access to native APIs—no plugins required. Want to create a file on Android? Run new java.io.File()—in JavaScript!
  - Completely native performance through the use of a JavaScript bridge natively available on all three mobile platforms.
  - Cross-platform libraries for common use cases. Need to call a JSON API? Run http.getJSON.
  - Style native apps using CSS. Yep, that’s actually a thing.

NativeScript: Sharing Code Between Web and Native Apps

NativeScript has opened up a whole new world to Angular developers: the ability to share code—directly—between your web and native iOS/Android applications. Which is awesome! But, just because you can share code across multiple platforms, doesn’t mean that you necessarily should.
In our inaugural Meetup, we’ll first take a look at what NativeScript makes possible from a code sharing perspective. We’ll build a few Angular components and use them both in the browser and on mobile devices. Then we’ll take a step back and look at the same code from a pragmatic, maintenance ­oriented perspective. Come for practical tips & tricks on sharing code across multiple development environments.
This presentation will be given by two special guests from Telerik's NativeScript Team ... TJ VanToll and Jen Looper!

Angular Air Episode 56: Is NativeScript the holy grail for mobile development?

Writing mobile apps is hard. A number of different frameworks and technologies have cropped up over the past couple years to make things easier. In particular, the ability to write everything in JavaScript lowers the barrier for entry. NativeScript attempts to have the best of all worlds by providing an JavaScript API that directly talks to the native libraries. So, no webview needed. You can create native-looking mobile apps...with JavaScript! And, in Angular 2! TJ VanToll and Jen Looper from the NativeScript team gives us the 4-1-1. Watch the recording

NativeScript - open source platform to build Native iOS/Android Apps

Would you like to use your existing skills to build truly native iOS and Android mobile applications? In this presentation, we'll look at NativeScript, an open source platform for doing just that. Not only do you get to use the skills you already have, but you can take advantage of millions of lines of code already written for you on NPM. NativeScript is free, open source and approachable for ColdFusion developers. Watch the recorded presentation
