    • As we are using nativescript-firebase plugin, just press y for below two questions when asked while installation.
      • are you using iOS?
      • are you using android?
      • For all other questions press n.

Run Web application

npm start - This will start the application at http://localhost:4200.

Run iOS Application

  • First start the simulator or connect the iOS device.
  • Execute npm run start.ios
  • Note - If you are using XCode8 then you need to set the DEVELPMENT_TEAM. There are two ways to set it.
    1. Using XCode
      • After executing npm run start.ios command, open project wordspace file nativescript/platforms/ios/nativescript.xcworkspace in XCode
      • Click on nativescript project in XCode and set Team from General Tab.
      • The issue with thie approach is, you need to set it everytime you remove and add the iOS platform.
    2. From build.xconfig (preferable)
      • Open nativescript/app/App_Resources/iOS/build.xconfig file.
      • Uncomment DEVELOPMENT_TEAM = YOUR_TEAM_ID; line, and enter your team id.

Known Issues and Solution

  1. Angular dependencies at two levels for AOT support
  • Currently we have added angular dependencies in root level package.json and web/package.json. Because, AOT does not work properly when we use path mapping and this issue is reported and can be traked at and PR: Once this issue is resolved we can add path mapping as shown below and remove the angular dependencies from web/package.json, so in case of any version update we just need to change the version at root directory level.


    "paths": {
        "@angular/*": ["../../node_modules/@angular/*"]
