NativeScript newbie installation experience


I have at this point tried installing NS twice. I am still getting path issues and can see that I am not alone. I have followed many threads and still can’t get anywhere. As an experiment, NativeScript isn’t accessible to newbies. Is there a resource to follow to get things up and running on windows? I’m seriously thinking of givving up- if it’s dodgy to install, how good is the rest of the dev experience going to be?


Hey @saoirse,

Sorry you ran into problems here :frowning: These installation issues are definitely frustrating.

Are your path issues Android related? Could you paste in the error you’re getting so we can try to help you out?

And just to throw out another idea for you—if you use NativeScript Sidekick you can do Android builds in the cloud so that you’re not depending on your local installation environment.
