What you'll learn

Welcome to the NativeScript Getting Started Guide. In this tutorial you'll use NativeScript, a cross-platform JavaScript framework for building native mobile apps, to build an iOS and Android app from scratch. This course is based on the NativeScript Core Groceries Tutorial found in the documentation section of nativescript.org, and you'll use just JavaScript and CSS in this course.
