This is a
playground to test code. It runs a full
Node.js environment and already has all of
npm’s 400,000 packages pre-installed, including
tns-android with all
npm packages installed. Try it out:
tns-android lists no main file and has no index.js, so it can't be directly required. If this is a mistake, please let us know. It may however contain internal files that you can require manually:

Several Wiki pages describe some internal topics about the runtime here
The repo is structured in the following projects (ordered by dependencies):
The NativeScript Android Runtime architecture can be summarized in the following diagram.
For more details on how it works, read the documentation.
Following are the minimal prerequisites to build the runtime package.
git clone --recurse-submodules firstname.lastname@example.org:NativeScript/android-runtime.git
Note: You might need to run the Android Studio from the command line in order to preserve the environment variables. This is in case you get errors like "missing npm" if starting the studio the usual way.
The build process includes building of the runtime package (both optimized and with unstripped v8 symbol table), as well as all supplementary tools used for the android builds: metadata-generator, binding-generator, metadata-generator, static-binding-generator
The result of the build will be in the dist folder.
Note: To cut the build time in half and package only the optimized (stripped) version of the runtime package comment out 'tasks.generateRuntimeAar.execute()' in the build.gradle script.
Go to subfolder test-app after you built the runtime.
Start an emulator or connect a device.
Note: Keep in mind the device or emulator needs to have an sdcard mounted.
