hyperHTML ease and NativeScript performance for Android and iOS.

Basic Setup

There is an official documentation page on how to setup your system.

On ArchLinux though, you can go through this post or type the following:

# install android stuff via archibold, IF NEEDED
bash <(curl -s
# setup env and read terms and conditions
sudo $ANDROID_HOME/tools/bin/sdkmanager "tools" "platform-tools" "build-tools;25.0.3" "extras;android;m2repository" "extras;google;m2repository"

# install NativeScript (tsc)
npm install -g nativescript --unsafe-perm

# install virtual device
yaourt -S --needed genymotion

Chose Custom Phone — 7.1.0 API 25 as Genymotion device after launching it and creating a free developer account.

Find the device

Once android tools are installed and genymotion is running, type the following:

tns device android --available-devices

You should see a list of devices and relative IDs.

available devices

Run the basic example

From your developer folder, we are going to create a new NativeScript Hello World demo.

tns create ns-hello-world --template tns-template-hello-world
cd ns-hello-world

At this point we can launch for the first time the example. The first time it will take a little longer than usual because it needs to install extra software.

# be sure the device id is your correct one
# tns device android --available-devices
tns run android --device
# NOTE: if you have one device only
# you can just type tns run android

If everything went fine, you should already see an Hello World application.

Test nativeHTML

From the same folder, the ns-hello-world one, clone this repository and copy some file over.

# install nativehtml
npm install --save nativehtml

# copy the default example page
cp node_modules/nativehtml/examples/default-app.js app/main-page.js

# deploy via tns deploy android
tns deploy android --device
# NOTE: you can omit --device xx.xx.xx if only 1 device

# run the debugger
tns debug android --debug-brk

Once the debugger shows you the Chrome/ium link, go there and play the code.

You should see the app/main-page.js running through hyperHTML and basicHTML.
