We’re in the process of ensuring that our Community Plugins are ready for the upcoming 3.0 release. Everyone on this forum has used a plugin, I’m sure, to build an app! Now, it’s time to show some love to the hardworking plugin authors who do such a great job.
Here’s a list of our community plugins: http://plugins.nativescript.org.
Here is documentation on how to upgrade: https://github.com/NativeScript/NativeScript/wiki/Migrating-Plugins-to-NativeScript-3.0
Here’s the deal: Submit a PR that is accepted by a plugin author to make a plugin 3.0 compatible, and I’ll ship you a package of NativeScript swag!
You know we’re all about that swag
Here’s how to help:
- Upgrade to 3.0 for an app you’re working on. Instructions on how to do this are here: https://www.nativescript.org/blog/nativescript-3.0-release-candidate-available-today
- Check if your plugins are all working. If you find problems, research a fix to support the 3.0 upgrade and submit a PR to the plugin’s repo.
- I’ll work with you and the plugin authors to make sure we loop back if your PR fix is accepted.
A good example of how an external PR was accepted to upgrade a plugin to 3.0 is here: https://github.com/bradmartin/nativescript-cardview/pull/51
