NativeScript is an open-source application framework for building native mobile apps on iOS and Android. Developed by Progress Software, NativeScript lets developers use JavaScript or any other language that transpiles to JavaScript to build cross-platform applications. The framework works by providing access to APIs for both platforms through a single codebase, allowing the development of apps with native UI and performance characteristics while maintaining an efficient development process. This approach eliminates the need to maintain separate codebases for different platforms and enables quicker iterations during development cycles. With its ability to directly manipulate native UI widgets through a virtual DOM mechanism, NativeScript can achieve high performance and generate truly native user experiences across different mobile operating systems from a shared codebase.
