The first beta version of NativeScript is now available for the public. Telerik started the project a little more than a year ago and is now able to deliver a framework which will allow developers to create mobile apps using the native capabilities of the mobile devices. The framework’s potential is great, although you will find some pieces are missing or are still unpolished, as the version is still in beta.
What is NativeScript?
To sum up what NativeScript has to offer:
• complete native cross-platform applications with the ability to implement platform-specific UIs
• re-usability of native library from .NET, Java or Objective-C
• easily build complex UIs, thanks to the ability to use rich data binding and existing user interface patterns
• 100% code sharing or platform-specific APIs usability, depending on the application that is developed
• for creating excellent native UX, it allows the use of the latest native platform features
• implement your apps code using NativeScript CLI
• obtain a rich development experience by using the Telerik Platform, App Builder and the full Visual Studio integration.
