Huge Plain Awesome Nativescript hello world size


#1

Just installed and the app size is about 40 mb. Have you guys using a WebView like Cordova? Google says using webpack can decrease the size but the guides seem to be applied only to Angular.

Has anyone got a Plain Awesome Nativescript (TypeScript) work with webpack?


#2

[Applicable only for Android] Consider using ABI-split for splitting the apk into several distributions each containing binary code only for 1 architecture. This should decrease the size dramatically.

Thanks. I’ll give it a try.
