What you'll learn

In this course, Nathan shows how to use the official NativeScript plugin seed to create a custom view component plugin for iOS and Android.​ He systematically shows how to expose a native API to JavaScript on the iOS side, then he shows how to build up the same API in Android, exposing a common plugin API to be consumed by the NativeScript application. Along the way, he shows how to determine the quality of available source CocoaPods and Gradle projects, as well as how to deal with some hurdles that you may face while building your own plugins. This short course will teach you a lot of intermediate to advanced techniques in a short amount of time, so put your attention hats on and hold on.
