This plugin contains type information about the native platforms as exposed by the NativeScript framework.

Offically supported entry points:

  • android.d.ts - For android SDK and runtime types.
  • ios.d.ts - For iOS SDK and runtime types.

Using the declarations may conflict with DOM typings, consider using TypeScript 2.x.x and the following settings in your tsconfig.json:

    "compilerOptions": {
        "module": "commonjs",
        "target": "es5",
        "experimentalDecorators": true,
        "lib": [

Create reference.d.tsand add the following content:

/// <reference path="./node_modules/tns-platform-declarations/ios.d.ts" />
/// <reference path="./node_modules/tns-platform-declarations/android.d.ts" />

d.ts files require a lot of memory and CPU. Consider adding skipLibCheck option to tsconfig file.
