Comparison to determine the advantages of each framework
For this reason, it is important to differentiate which one suits your application the best. To understand which framework will work as desired for your project, you must identify the programming language to use and how it will affect the performance of the application.
At this point, it is necessary to remember that when we talk about native applications, we refer to those that have been built for a specific platform, Android, iOS or Windows Phone. This makes development more effective and the overall performance of the application better and more reliable. However, the problem with native applications is that it is mandatory to develop different versions for each platform as the programming language represents incompatible codes under other systems. Such an effort increases development costs by many folds.
Ionic relies on the user interface to provide access to the functions of the operating system installed on the host, and run from a browser supported by additional resources needed like Cordova or PhoneGap.
Easy to work with
Although Ionic is easier to learn, its performance is greatly reduced to create applications, especially those that require complex tasks (games, for example), because they must run in WebView. NativeScript, on the other hand, offers greater advantages in the performance of applications, the difference is noticeable compared to Ionic, although the weight of these is much greater because it is a native environment.
Ionic definitely beats NativeScript in the market, with a lot of applications, plugins and highlights like Google Maps, while the competition offers a catalog of almost 1000 plugins.
Usefulness of the code base
Let's remember that Ionic is a framework created to develop wrapped applications, for this reason, has great advantages at the time of reusing the code base. However, NativeScript, together with the Angular team, built a scheme capable of developing applications from a single project, facilitating the work of the programmer.
Both frameworks offer useful advantages according to the needs of the project, which is why it is important to know the type of application to be developed to make the right decision.
