Angular 2 All the Way
A practical guide towards dealings with Reactive state management and Nativescript integration.
In the beginning of 2016 we set off for an ambitious project. Our customer Essent wanted to rebuild their customer portal in Angular 2. It was also decided to use Nativescript combined with Angular 2 to build related mobile apps. The thought was that this should all play well together, although it was still in beta. Along the way we learned valuable lessons. For example about application state. Angular 2 is all about Component Based Application structures, and these components need to communicate with each other in isolation.
Spoiler: the days of polling mechanisms are over and it’s time for efficient reactive Angular 2 applications with the help of RxJS.
