NativeScript 2.0 Supports Visual Studio Code, TypeScript
Major update to cross-platform framework for building native apps includes support for Visual Studio Code and TypeScript, as wel as AngularJS, Maven, and CocoaPods.
Telerik last week released NativeScript 2.0, a major update to its cross-platform framework for building native apps. The latest revision includes support for TypeScript and Visual Studio Code, as well as a bevy of features outside the Visual Studio ecosystem.
NativeScript 2.0's Visual Studio Code support allows for developing and debugging of native apps through the VS Code UI, which means developers are able to view IntelliSense hints, get variable introspection and work through debugging breakpoints in an interactive manner. That support comes by way of an extension that's available for download here or by searching through the Visual Studio Marketplace.
Outside of the VS ecosystem, the company also announced support for AngularJS, native animations through CSS reuse, hundreds of extensions and plugins, and support for native library repositories (inclulding Maven and CocoaPods).
