NativeScript is in Early Access stage (request access); check out the Roadmap (this is software, so the usual caveats), the FAQ (including a short comparison with Appcelerator) and the articles listed at the bottom of this post.
Key features of NativeScript include:
- Native UX – your apps have the performance and experience of a native app
- 0-day support for new platforms – Telerik commits to supporting new features right after they are released.
- Open Source – NativeScript will be released as Open Source
- Right data-binding – in the declarative XML. You get an extra benefit via LiveSync.
NativeScript will be supported by the Telerik tools (but you can use NativeScript w/o the tools); check the Roadmap for detais.
There are some examples as code snippets in the NS docs (I’ll add more links to samples as I find them).
Akhil Nistala has been spending time this January helping us put together additional examples, while documenting his progress in his blog. His posts so far are:
Akhil’s samples will be available at the progress github organization and we are planning to expand on it over the next few weeks as we build towards the rest of the releases; stay tuned.
