Few years back, using Web technologies for building mobile apps revolved around using hybrid frameworks that basically used a web host view to run a web app inside. Consequently, the performance of such apps rarely met the desired expectations, leaving the development of immersive and exciting mobile apps to native mobile technologies. Luckily, building modern native mobile apps using Web technologies is no longer a dream. In this workshop, you will learn how to build a trivia game using NativeScript - an open source framework for building native iOS and Android apps.
Follow this instructions to install NativeScript and Android dependencies.
If you have an Android Device you can use it during development (remember to bring a cable!) - this is the simplest option.
Once your Android device is connected / AVD running run "tns device" to verify Nativescript has access to the device.
If you are using an Android device you need to enable developer mode + enable usb debugging - you can follow these instructions.
Finally you can verify everything is running by running "tns create test" which creates an empty Nativescript app. then "cd test" and "tns run android" will load the simple app into your phone / emulator
