    1. Introduction: NativeScript

By Nathan Walker, Telerik Developer Expert for NativeScript at Progress.

NativeScript is an open source framework for building truly native mobile apps with Angular, TypeScript, or JavaScript. When using the term *native*, what we mean is a truly *native* UI. Instead of using HTML to mark up your view, you can use a clean and concise XML markup language to code views that will use the corresponding *native* UI elements on Android or iOS. Beyond just view markup, NativeScript provides an entire runtime for building/running native mobile apps as well as a rich suite of modules that can be imported/required to make consistent API calls to Android or iOS and under the hood, truly native API calls are made to the respective platforms.
