AR with NativeScript


#1

Is anyone working with AR/SLAM using NativeScript? If so, I would really appreciate pointers. Thanks much :slight_smile:


#2

I am not, but any Native code should work fine, all that being said it would be a ad premature seeing as ARKit is RIGHT on the horizon :smiley: Kinda glad I haven’t just yet!


#3

ARKit does look impressive and I hope we get NativeScript bindings as early as we can. But again, this limits us to iOS. I was hoping to experiment with cross platform AR implementations. Also, I’m here because I come with a JavaScript background with no native dev experience at this time.

It would be fun to implement AR using NativeScript.

Wonder if this would be something we could integrate? https://github.com/jeromeetienne/AR.js

Thanks for sharing this Jen. I think this works in the browser. A webview i think. This should be implementable as is for sure. But a really good solution would ideally be something that works natively, using the device’s camera and without a WebView. Again, not an expert on this, but I think that is how it might work better.

Now you’ve piqued our interest, and we are looking at this https://www.wikitude.com/download/ - there are several plugins already built, wonder if we could do one for {N}!

I’m so glad to hear that @jen.looper! Thank you :slight_smile:

It would be just awesome to have a plugin to incorporate AR/SLAM using the Wikitude SDK. SLAM is amazing! Also, as @sitefinitysteve mentioned, ARKit in iOS 11 is also something that needs attention going forward.
