What is NativeScript?
Who uses NativeScript?
Why developers like NativeScript?
Here are some stack decisions, common use cases and reviews by companies and developers who chose NativeScript in their tech stack.
I have always been looking to develop mobile applications, but it has been a challenge to me to learn Native Android and IOS programming. Considering my background as web developer, NativeScript came to my rescue as I was able to utilize my existing web developer skills to develop native mobile applications.
So, i am preparing to adopt NativeScript.
For years my hybrid projects used Apache Cordova.
"Let's avoid to maintain two teams and double the deliver velocity".
It was good for a few years, we had those september issues, (i.e. apple broke some backward compatibility) , but for the last years, things seems to be losing the grip faster.
Last breaking changes, for instance, seems to have a workaround, however that growing feeling that simple things can not rely on so fragile webviews keeps growing faster and faster.
I've tested nativescript not only on it's "helloworld", but also on how do they respond on issues.
I got tweed support. I opened an github issue and got answers on less than 10 hours (yes i did it on another timezone and very close to a weekend). I saw the faulty docs get corrected in two days.
The bad news is i only can adopt nativescript on newer projects, since there is no budget to revamp the current solutions.
The good news is i can keep coding on Vue.js , without vou router, but that's ok. I've already exchanged vanilla html for real native app with background magic enabled, the router can be easily reproduced.
I use NativeScript because it's a fast powerful easy framework to build a mobile app. You code once and build multiple platforms.
