WebSockets

Image Caching

For image-heavy applications, it's a good practice to adopt an image-caching strategy that helps keep the memory usage down (remote images are cached after first download for example).

@triniwiz/nativescript-image-cache-it

One of the go-to plugins is @triniwiz/nativescript-image-cache-it. It uses SDWebImage on iOS and Glide on android.

cli
npm i --save @triniwiz/nativescript-image-cache-it
cli
yarn add @triniwiz/nativescript-image-cache-it

@nativescript-community/ui-image

Another great plugin is from the NativeScript-Community '@nativescript-community/ui-image'. It uses SDWebImage on iOS and Fresco on android.

cli
npm i --save @nativescript-community/ui-image
cli
yarn add @nativescript-community/ui-image

Text

@nativescript-community/ui-label

As an alternative to the core Label, check out @nativescript-community/ui-label.

npm i --save @nativescript-community/ui-label
cli
yarn add @nativescript-community/ui-label
