NativeScript JavaScript Template

This template creates a "Hello, world" NativeScript app using JavaScript.

This is the default template, so you can create a new app that uses it with the --template option:

tns create my-hello-world-js --template tns-template-hello-world

Or without it:

tns create my-hello-world-js

Note: Both commands will create a new NativeScript app that uses the latest version of this template published to npm.

If you want to create a new app that uses the source of the template from the master branch, you can execute the following:

# clone nativescript-app-templates monorepo locally
git clone

# create app template from local source (all templates are in the 'packages' subfolder of the monorepo)
tns create my-hello-world-js --template nativescript-app-templates/packages/template-hello-world
