NativeScript for Angular Mobile Development

By: Nathan Walker, Nathanael J. Anderson

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.

We wanted to provide some extra goodies to go along with all the rich content you've been learning about throughout Part 3; we hope that you enjoyed it! Using multiple item row templates with ListView can be handy in many situations, but hopefully, this will give you the tools to know how to make it work for you and your app.

Special considerations with data persistence is an important factor to any engaging app, so we looked at serializing data before storing and hydrating the data when restoring it out of a persisted state.

Lastly, we looked at further enriching our view components with more Angular directive goodness. With Part 3 completed, we have now completed the core competency and feature set of our app for the book. However, we are far from done with the app. The development workflow and process presented in this book are the typical development cycle we bring to any app we build. We will cover improving our architecture and further polishing our app to prepare for a public...
