Open Source Code Samples in the NativeScript Marketplace

June 14, 2018 — by Rob Lauer

I like to think of myself as a fairly accomplished copy-and-paste developer. I've certainly honed my Google Search --> Stack Overflow --> Copy Code routine over the years. 🤓

Ok maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration (it's not) but the reality is few of us want to re-create what's already been built. Why not copy steal borrow ideas from others? Whether it's merely for inspiration or straight up copy-and-paste coding, we all want to be more efficient developers.

This is why we've added on to the NativeScript Marketplace and created a series of free and open source NativeScript Code Samples!

The initial release of our code samples includes 34 unique NativeScript apps that are:

  • 🔓 Open source and immediately runnable on the NativeScript Playground;
  • 📱 iOS and Android compatible;
  • 🏗️ Built with Angular, Vue.js, and/or JavaScript/TypeScript (most are built for all three!).

The samples include apps that range from simple building blocks:
