    NativeScript Image Swipe widget

    A NativeScript widget that will allow you to easily swipe and zoom through a list of images.




    Run the following command from the root of your project:

    tns plugin add nativescript-image-swipe

    This command automatically installs the necessary files, as well as stores nativescript-image-swipe as a dependency in your project's package.json file.


    There is no additional configuration needed!

      Triggered when the user swipes to the next/previous image in the list.

    Static Properties

    • pageChangedEvent - String
      String value used when hooking to pageChanged event.

    You need to add xmlns:is="nativescript-image-swipe" to your page tag, and then simply use <is:ImageSwipe/> in order to add the widget to your page.

    <!-- test-page.xml -->
    <Page xmlns="" xmlns:is="nativescript-image-swipe" navigatingTo="navigatingTo">
            <is:ImageSwipe items="{{ items }}" imageUrlProperty="imageUrl" 
                           pageNumber="{{ pageNumber }}" pageChanged="pageChanged" backgroundColor="#000000">
    // test-page.ts
    import { EventData, Observable } from "data/observable";
    import { ObservableArray } from "data/observable-array";
    import { Page } from "ui/page";
    import { PageChangeEventData } from "nativescript-image-swipe";
    let viewModel: Observable;
    export function navigatingTo(args: EventData) {
        const page = args.object as Page;
        const items = new ObservableArray();
        items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
        items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
        items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
        items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
        items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
        viewModel = new Observable();
        viewModel.set("items", items);
        viewModel.set("pageNumber", 3);
        page.bindingContext = viewModel;
    export function pageChanged(e: PageChangeEventData) {
        console.log(`Page changed to ${}.`);

    Usage in Angular

    In order to use the ImageSwipe you must register it in BOTH your main.ts and main.aot.ts!

    // main.ts
    import { platformNativeScriptDynamic } from "nativescript-angular/platform";
    import { registerElement } from "nativescript-angular/element-registry";
    import { AppModule } from "./app.module";
    registerElement("ImageSwipe", () => require("nativescript-image-swipe/image-swipe").ImageSwipe);
    <!-- test.component.html -->
        <ImageSwipe [items]="items" imageUrlProperty="imageUrl" 
                    [pageNumber]="pageNumber" (pageChanged)="pageChanged($event)" backgroundColor="#000000">
    // test.component.ts
    import { Component, OnInit } from "@angular/core";
    import { PageChangeEventData } from "nativescript-image-swipe";
        selector: "demo",
        templateUrl: "./test.component.html",
    export class ImageSwipeComponent implements OnInit {
        public items: any[] = [];
        public pageNumber: number = 3;
        ngOnInit(): void {
            this.items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
            this.items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
            this.items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
            this.items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
            this.items.push({ imageUrl: "" });
        public pageChanged(e: PageChangeEventData) {
            console.log(`Page changed to ${}.`);


    This repository includes both Angular and plain NativeScript demos. In order to run those execute the following in your shell:

    $ git clone
    cd nativescript-image-swipe
    $ npm install
    $ npm run demo-ios

    This will run the plain NativeScript demo project on iOS. If you want to run it on Android simply use the -android instead of the -ios sufix.

    If you want to run the Angular demo simply use the demo-ng- prefix instead of demo-.
