Recently I wrote an article regarding how to use SQLite in a NativeScript Android and iOS mobile application. In my previous tutorial the assumption was that the database would be created fresh. However, what if you want to ship a pre-filled SQLite database with your application? Maybe you have 10,000 records that you prefer not to have to download from a remote web server, or maybe there is another reason. Having a pre-populated database is fair game.
We’re going to take a look at what it takes to ship a NativeScript application with a SQLite database that already contains data.Read More
Not too long ago I wrote a tutorial regarding saving data in a NativeScript mobile application using the application settings module that closely resembled that of HTML5 local storage. If you’re not familiar with the application settings module, it is persisted storage using key value pairs. What if you wanted a storage option that was a bit more query friendly? Like other hybrid app platforms, NativeScript supports SQLite for persisted data as well.
Both iOS and Android supports SQLite and since Telerik NativeScript can interface directly with native APIs, it becomes possible to use SQLite. We don’t need to write all the interface logic by hand because there happens to be a nice plugin available to make our life easier.
We’re going to see how to make use of SQLite in an Android and iOS NativeScript application using the available SQLite plugin.Read More
Ionic 2 is becoming all the rage right now because of it using Angular. With the introduction of Angular, comes many differences in the language and framework itself. One of the most critical parts of any mobile application is its ability to save data and have it persisted when the application is launched at a later date. I demonstrated in Ionic Framework 1 how to use SQLite as a storage solution, so I figured it would be a good idea to demonstrate the same using Ionic Framework 2.
Let’s see why it might be a good idea to use SQLite in an Ionic 2 application rather than HTML5 local storage.Read More
