NativeScript for .NET Developers

Contrary to what it may sound like, NativeScript is not a programming language – in fact, it simply uses languages you may already know: JavaScript, CSS and XML. NativeScript is a framework for building cross-platform truly native mobile apps with JavaScript!

There is no DOM, no cross-compilation and no hybrid mobile WebViewrendering. You have a single codebase of JavaScript, XML and CSS towards making a native app that runs cross-platform. NativeScript as a platform is open source, and offers free developer tooling via the Command Line Interface (CLI).

Now, it may sound like NativeScript is mostly catering to JavaScript developers – you know, those skinny jeans hipsters, so to speak. While you may respect non-Microsoft developers, perhaps you are not one of them. Maybe you are a .NET developer on the Microsoft stack and rather proud of it. If so, you’d have good reason – it is one of the richest possible developer ecosystems and with some of the best tooling available.

It turns out, NativeScript has lots and lots of appeal for .NET developers. You’re going to enjoy the possibilities. Let’s dive in.
