NativeScript is a free and open source JavaScript framework for building native iOS, Android, and Windows Phone apps. But I know what you’re thinking: another way of building apps? What makes NativeScript special? Here are a a few cool things:

  • Direct access to native APIs—no plugins required. Want to create a file on Android? Run new java.io.File()—in JavaScript!
  • Completely native performance through the use of a JavaScript bridge natively available on all three mobile platforms.
  • Cross-platform libraries for common use cases. Need to call a JSON API? Runhttp.getJSON("https://api.mydomain.com/get").
  • Style native apps using CSS. Yep, that’s actually a thing.


TJ VanToll is a senior developer advocate for Telerik, a jQuery team member, and the author of jQuery UI in Action. He has over a decade of web development experience—specializing in performance and the mobile web.
