In the meantime, we are living in a mobile-first world, where apps have emerged as the favored interface to business, accessible via phone or tablet, freeing users from the bonds of the desktop.
How many languages and frameworks are developers required to learn these days to fulfill an organization’s digital mission? I spoke with Todd Anglin, who worked on NativeScript at Telerik before it was acquired by Progress, which is where he’s continuing his evangelism for the runtime.
I like to think of NativeScript as fulfilling the overdue promise of hybrid, which was always supposed to be write your application with reusable code with skills for the web, and then have a quality native app that can run on any platform. This is always what hybrid was supposed to do, but there’s a limit to what that little tiny web browser can achieve on a mobile device, especially with Apple.
The most recent release of NativeScript, version 2.5, became available in January. You can find out more about the release here.
