Installation

:warning: Warning :warning:

From NativeScript 5.x using this component will break the NativeScript tab component on iOS (which is bound to be removed). This is needed to allow using the latest native iOS features. If needed you can use either bottomnavigationbar (this one is the best choice, closest to material design) or material-tabs (clone of the NativeScript one, but with a little less features).

ns plugin add @nativescript-community/ui-material-tabs

Be sure to run a new build after adding plugins to avoid any issues.
