Overview of this book

NativeScript is an open source framework that is built by Progress in order to build truly native mobile apps with TypeScript, JavaScript or just Angular which is an open source framework built by Google that offers declarative templates, dependency injection, and fully featured modules to build rich applications. Angular’s versatile view handling architecture allows your views to be rendered as highly performant UI components native to iOS and Android mobile platforms. This decoupling of the view rendering layer in Angular combined with the power of native APIs with NativeScript have together created the powerful and exciting technology stack of NativeScript for Angular. This book focuses on the key concepts that you will need to know to build a NativeScript for Angular mobile app for iOS and Android. We’ll build a fun multitrack recording studio app, touching on powerful key concepts from both technologies that you may need to know when you start building an app of your own. The structure of the book takes the reader from a void to a deployed app on both the App Store and Google Play, serving as a reference guide and valuable tips/tricks handbook. By the end of this book, you’ll know majority of key concepts needed to build a successful NativeScript for Angular app.

Chapter 6. Running the App on iOS and Android

There are a couple of ways to build, run, and start working with NativeScript applications.  We will cover command-line tools, as they are currently the most supported method, and the best way to do anything with any NativeScript project.  

To simplify things for our understanding, we will work through the commands that we will use frequently first, then we will cover the rest of the commands that aren't as frequently used. So, let's begin and work through the commands that you will want to know.

In this chapter, we will cover the following topics:

  • How to run an application
  • How to start the Debugger
  • How to build an application for deployment
  • How to start the testing framework
  • How to run a NativeScript diagnostic
  • All about Android Keystores
