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

Officially 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 2.2.x or newer, and the following settings in your tsconfig.json:

  "compilerOptions": {
    "lib": ["es6", "dom"],
    "baseUrl": ".",
    "paths": {
    "*": [

Projects created with NativeScript 3.0.0 will be shipped without references.d.ts. Create references.d.ts in the root directory of your project and add the following:

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

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