Can I use Cordova Plugins in NativeScript?

When migrating, or planning a migration from Cordova based mobile application development to NativeScript, one must consider the plugins in use in the existing application. NativeScript does not use the DOM for the presentation layer, thus any plugin expecting to display visual elements using HTML or DOM, can not be used. However, Cordova plugins that do not display visual elements using HTML or DOM can likely be via cordova-nativescript-plugin.

Currently in alpha phase (and only supporting Android at the moment, with iOS in the works) this plugin will be another bridge for those of you looking to migrate from Cordova.
