In NativeScript 3.x.x there were some changes and optimizations for working with images on Android and properties
were introduced. In fact, the Fresco
library can be dismissed if we are following the best practices
for using images in Android
However, if you still need to use the Fresco library you can extend the existing plugin (you can even contribute with a PR and provide the additional functionality so it can become a part of the nativescript-fresco
plugin). The existing plugin is requiring the dependency to the Fresco library in the build.gradle here
In case, extending the plugin (which is the recommended way) is considered overkill, you can include the library as project dependency in app/App_Resources/Android/app.gradle
file and once again access the library as mentioned above while using data conversion syntax.
