…and how is that related to plugins?

When you create a native mobile application involving anything more advanced than just your standard out of the box user interface controls, you inevitably run into challenges around extending your app to handle new UI interactions or animations that you could write yourself, or you could use a library that someone else developed and made available for free.

In this post I review some options that you have for “stepping outside the box” when it comes to creating user interface elements in your NativeScript applications.

If you have used the Redux pattern for your application store before, you know how powerful the concept is. @ngrx is a Redux inspired set of libraries for Angular.

Folks learning NativeScript have historically had three places to get their learning – the docs section of NativeScript.org, community blog posts like this one, and big publishing houses, this includes printed books and video courses. NativeScript.org docs are great and they are updated, but you are left to find things yourself; there is nobody to guide you through it visually. Community blog posts are great for very specific topics, but lack a broad scope. Big publishers take a long time to publish courses or books, and once they are published, getting content updated is quite a tedious process as well. So you end up watching a video course recorded with NativeScript version 1 while trying to piece together a project with NativeScript version 3, for example.

So I recorded it and uploaded the video. Here is a great introduction to all the new features in NativeScript 2.5.
