  • Svelte specific navigation and modals eg navigate({ page: MySvelteComponent })
  • Integration with svelte's transistions eg <label transition:fade="{duration: 2000}">
  • Integration with sveltes scoped styles
  • Complete coverage of the Nativescript core UI modules
  • Uses unmodified Svelte and Nativescript modules

Work In Progress

While Svelte Native is feature complete, there are some items outstanding to bring it to the level of other Nativescript library integrations

  • More Tests 😳 #54


You can get started developing with this using the latest template

$ npm install -g nativescript
$ tns create myapp --template @nativescript/template-blank-svelte

A fresh Svelte Native app will be found in the myapp folder

Once installed use the tns preview, tns build or tns run commands as for a normal NativeScript application.
