This is released under the MIT License, meaning you are free to include this in any type of program -- However for entities that need a support contract, changes, enhancements and/or a commercial license please contact me at

I also do contract work; so if you have a module you want built for NativeScript (or any other software projects) feel free to contact me [email protected].

Please feel free to fork this repo and add other utility functions!!!


Supports all NativeScript versions from 2.x till 5.x

tns plugin add nativescript-master-technology-updated


The first release of this library had a ton of DOM routines, these have been moved to there own plugin called 'nativescript-dom'


To use the module you must first require() it:

require( "nativescript-master-technology-updated" );

All routines are global; you do not need to keep a reference to the library.

If you get TypeScript complaining about process not being defined, then put /// <reference path="./node_modules/nativescript-master-technology-updated/references.d.ts" /> in your references.d.ts.

Optionally: You can pass true as second argument to also print the value:

var data = {
id: 1,
name: 'Nathan'
console.keys(data, true);

// id: 1
// name: Nathan
