NativeScript Core Blank Template

App templates help you jump start your native cross-platform apps with built-in UI elements and best practices. Save time writing boilerplate code over and over again when you create new apps.

Quick Start

Execute the following command to create an app from this template:

tns create my-blank-js --template ns-template-js

Note: This command will create a new NativeScript app that uses the latest version of this template published to [npm] (https://www.npmjs.com/package/ns-template-js).

If you want to create a new app that uses the source of the template from the master branch, you can execute the following:

# clone repo locally
git clone [email protected]:shiv19/ns-js-template.git

# create app template from local source
tns create my-blank-js --template ns-template-js

NB: Please, have in mind that the master branch may refer to dependencies that are not on NPM yet!



The application root component is located at:

  • app-root.xml - sets up a Frame that lets you navigate between pages.

There is a single blank component located in:

  • /home/home-page.js - sets up an empty page layout.

Home page has the following components:

  • ActionBar - It holds the title of the page.
  • GridLayout - The main page layout that should contains all the page content.
