NativeScript TypeScript Template

This template creates a NativeScript app with the NativeScript hello world example, however, in this template the example is built with TypeScript.

You can create a new app that uses this template with either the --template option.

tns create my-hello-world-ts --template tns-template-hello-world-ts

Or the --tsc shorthand.

tns create my-hello-world-ts --tsc

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-ts --template nativescript-app-templates/packages/template-hello-world-ts
