NativeScript — Open Source Platform to Easily Build Native iOS/Android Apps

With the NativeScript framework you can use your JavaScript and CSS skills to write native mobile applications for iOS, Android, and (soon) Windows Phone. There is no WebView involved in rendering the app, as the UI is rendered by the native platform's rendering engine. Because of that, the app's entire UX is native.

With the NativeScript framework you can use your JavaScript and CSS skills to write native mobile applications for iOS, Android, and (soon) Windows Phone. There is no WebView involved in rendering the app, as the UI is rendered by the native platform's rendering engine. Because of that, the app's entire UX is native.

The NativeScript framework enables you to use a complete stack of cross-platform APIs to write your application code or, if you need to, you can directly access all platform-specific native APIs using JavaScript only. That’s right—you can access all native APIs, not only the ones we thought would be useful!

We did not want to create just yet another ecosystem around a native cross-platform framework. We wanted to integrate and play well with all existing JavaScript and native iOS/Android/Windows ecosystems. That is why we also support using existing JavaScript libraries, as well as existing native Objective-C, Java, and .NET libraries. We want to stress that you don't need to know Objective-C, Java, or .NET in order to reuse these libraries—their entire APIs are available in JavaScript with no changes.
