NativeScript is an open source framework to build truly native mobile
most important aspect is that it allows your views to be rendered as
real native UI components "native" to iOS or Android, which offer
superior performance with fluid usability. This decoupling of the view
rendering layer created the powerful combination that is the exciting
new world of Angular Native.
This book focuses on the key concepts
you need to know to build an Angular Native mobile app for iOS and
Android. We'll build a fun music app "NgNativeMusic", touching on the
powerful native key concepts you need to know when you start building an
app of your own. Having the right structure is critical to developing
an app that can scale while also being highly maintainable and portable,
so we'll start with project organization via @NgModule. We'll use
@Component to build our first view and then use @Injectable to define a
service we can use via Angular's dependency injection.
understand NativeScript's tns command-line utility to run the app on iOS
and Android. We'll integrate third-party plugins to construct some of
the core features. Next we'll integrate @ngrx store + effects to
establish some solid practices (Redux) to deal with state management.
Having a great data flow and solid architecture is meaningless if the
app doesn't look good or offer a great user experience, so we'll use
SASS to develop a style for our app. After that, we'll deal with and
debug problems and invest some time into writing tests to prevent bugs
in the future. Lastly, we'll package and deploy our app to the Apple App
Store and Google Play.
By the end of the book, you'll know the majority of the key concepts needed to build an Angular Native app.
