What is NativeScript?

NativeScript enables developers to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Universal while sharing the application code across the platforms. When building the application UI, developers use our libraries, which abstract the differences between the native platforms.


NativeScript features deep integration with modern Angular with full-stack features like integration with the Angular CLI, router support, code generation, Webpack and more.


Now you can build native mobile applications using Vue.js and use the Vue CLI, Vuex and the other Vue framework features you know and love.

JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS

Want to code your way? NativeScript provides rich support, modern JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS, Flexbox and other web skills. Build your mobile apps free from the performance and user experience constraints of hybrid WebView-based apps.

Why you need NativeScript

Native Performance

Beautiful, accessible, platform-native UI – without WebViews. Define once and let NativeScript adapt to run everywhere, or tailor the UI to specific devices and screens.


With NativeScript, you have 100% direct access to all iOS and Android APIs. You can easily reuse CocoaPods and Android SDKs, plus find free plugins, templates, and application samples on the Marketplace.

Easy to learn

Use the web skills you already have to develop truly native apps with JavaScript, CSS, and Native UI markup.


Write and Deploy native mobile apps for iOS and Android from a single codebase. Use Angular or Vue to share existing web-based code.

Community Driven

NativeScript is surrounded by an enthusiastic and vibrant community. Decisions and direction for the framework come directly from day-to-day real world projects.

Free and Open Source

NativeScript is 100% free and open source, Apache 2 licensed.
