Angular's versatile view handling architecture allows your views to be rendered as highly performant UI components native to iOS and Android mobile platforms. This decoupling of the view rendering layer in Angular combined with the power of native APIs with NativeScript have together created the powerful and exciting technology stack of NativeScript for Angular. This book focuses on the key concepts that you will need to know to build a NativeScript for Angular mobile app for iOS and Android. We'll build a fun multitrack recording studio app, touching on powerful key concepts from both technologies that you may need to know when you start building an app of your own. The structure of the book takes the reader from a void to a deployed app on both the App Store and Google Play, serving as a reference guide and valuable tips/tricks handbook.

Explore the possibility of building truly native, cross-platform mobile applications using your JavaScript skill — NativeScript!
ABOUT THIS BOOK * Save your marketing time by building for iOS, Android, and Windows Mobile platforms simultaneously * Be an ace at utilizing the features of NativeScript and its ability to communicate with each of the host device libraries natively * Proficiently, build your fully cross-platform more » communication application exhibiting the fundamentals of NativeScript WHO THIS BOOK IS FOR If you are a JavaScript developer and want to build cross-platform applications, then this book is just the right one for you! WHAT YOU WILL LEARN * Install and compile your application in NativeScript * Get important know-how on the NativeScript project structure * Develop and style your screens for multiple platforms * Create a full-featured cross-platform communication application * Import and use several third-party components * Simplify and deal with device resolution and cross-platform issues * Test and deploy your application IN DETAIL NativeScript allows you to build a fast cross-platform application that has a native UI. NativeScript is a true cross-platform framework that generates native speed applications using the native components of the host platform, all using JavaScript. Although NativeScript allows you to build your application in JavaScript, you have full access to the host OS from your code, allowing you to easily tweak or use new platform features instantly at native code speeds. Whether you have already developed multiple applications or zero applications, this book will help you to develop your next application in a cross-platform framework quickly, saving you a massive amount of time and money. This book concisely shows you NativeScript's built-in framework that allows you to rapidly develop a fully-working compiled cross-platform application in just a few chapters. It starts by laying the foundation of NativeScript and working through the fundamentals to create a basic shell of the application. Moving on, you'll see how to build a full-fledged application step by step. We'll show you how to use plugins, and how to communicate with the native OS libraries easily so that you can customize your application as if your app was created in Java or Objective C. We then deal with the issues that arise from being cross platform and compensate for the different screen sizes, screen resolutions, and device abilities. Finally, we progress to testing and deploying your app. STYLE AND APPROACH A stepwise guide for building cross-platform mobile applications with the help of easy-to-understand examples. « less
