NativeScript UI SideDrawer


The NativeScript UI SideDrawer plugin allows you to have a hidden view that contains navigation UI or common settings. A popular application that uses the drawer UI is the Android Play Store app. The hidden view can be displayed with a flick gesture and can be shown from any of the four edges of the screen. The view is also displayed with a transition which can be chosen from a set of pre-defined transitions.


In Command prompt / Terminal navigate to your application root folder and run:

tns plugin add nativescript-ui-sidedrawer
