Folks learning NativeScript have historically had three places to get their learning – the docs section of NativeScript.org, community blog posts like this one, and big publishing houses, this includes printed books and video courses. NativeScript.org docs are great and they are updated, but you are left to find things yourself; there is nobody to guide you through it visually. Community blog posts are great for very specific topics, but lack a broad scope. Big publishers take a long time to publish courses or books, and once they are published, getting content updated is quite a tedious process as well. So you end up watching a video course recorded with NativeScript version 1 while trying to piece together a project with NativeScript version 3, for example.

In this NativeScript with Angular tutorial I will show you how to create a FAB with only JavaScript and CSS, without any third party libraries. This is a cross platform approach that will work for iOS and Android. There is a four part video playlist included for those that want to watch as I build the FAB from scratch.

Using Facebook login is pretty common in mobile apps today. There are many other third party authentication providers, but Facebook is extremely prevalent. With the nativescript-oauth plugin recently being updated, and the fact that I haven’t created a blog post or video tutorial on using it with Facebook, I decided to go ahead and record a new video tutorial on how to get things set up.
