Welcome to NativeScript Welcome Meet NativeScript - an open-source framework for the cross-platform development of truly native apps. 1

Welcome to NativeScript

Are you a hybrid app developer looking for a way to create truly native apps? Are you a native app developer wondering how to expand the scope of his apps to the other popular platforms? Or perhaps you are a web developer searching for a way to transfer your existing skills to the world of mobile development?

NativeScript lets you develop truly native apps for iOS and Android from a single code base of JavaScript or TypeScript, XML and CSS. NativeScript takes your cross-platform code and translates it into the language that your target platform speaks.

How Does It Work

Develop your business logic with JavaScript or TypeScript, design and style your user interface using XML and CSS and let NativeScript translate your single-source application code into truly native apps for iOS or Android.

You can develop for Android 4.2 or later and iOS 7.1 or later.

  1. Write your application code once using the NativeScript modules and the NativeScript runtimes.
    The modules expose the native device and platform capabilities of Android and iOS in a consistent manner and let you access them via non-platform-specific code.
    The modules let you access some native capabilities via platform-specific JavaScript code.
  2. Customize your app with platform-specific assets such as icons and splash screens.
  3. Build your app.
    When you build your app, the NativeScript runtime translates your non-platform specific code to the native language of your target platform and the NativeScript tools use the native platform SDKs and tools to build a native application package.
  4. Run your cross-platform native apps in the native emulators, on real devices or distribute them to testers and end users.

What’s Next

If you need even more native capabilities than the NativeScript modules provide, you can expand your development with any of the following options.
