NativeScript 2.0 was just released. Learn more about how it will help you code high performant cross-platform native mobile apps in our upcoming webinar.
We released NativeScript 1.0 in May 2015, and last week, a year after, we released NativeScript 2.0. NativeScript 2.0 has many new features but a key one is support for Angular 2.0, the brand-new version of the uber-popular AngularJS framework (see stackoverflow popularity report). Angular 2.0 now allows different types of renderers and that is where NativeScript 2.0 fits: you can now write a Web app and a Native App using the Angular 2.0 framework, sharing most of the code and using NativeScript for the, cross-platform, mobile code. It’s a win-win-win arrangement.
NativeScript 2.0 and Angular 2 together lead to very productive teams. Last week we were on stage at NG-CONF, together with Rangle and Google’s Angular team, showing off the mobile app we developed with the Kiva team in a few weeks. Check out the recording.
Tuesday next week (May 17th, 8am PT, 11am ET) we are hosting an online webinar to present NativeScript 2.0. The panel of experts includes John Papa (Google Developer Expert) and our own Burke Holland and TJ VanToll. It will be a great event; register here.
And if you want to whet your appetite for the new functionality, you can try it out now in your smartphone. Download our Kitchen Sink Demo App at the Apple App Store or on Google play and have fun!
