LambdaNative vs NativeScript: What are the differences?

Developers describe LambdaNative as "Cross-platform mobile apps in Scheme". LambdaNative is an open-source (BSD licensed) cross-platform development environment written in Scheme (Gambit-C), supporting Android, iOS, BlackBerry 10, OS X, Linux, Windows, OpenBSD, NetBSD, FreeBSD and OpenWrt. On the other hand, NativeScript is detailed as "Build truly native apps with JavaScript". NativeScript enables developers to build native apps for iOS, Android and Windows Universal while sharing the application code across the platforms. When building the application UI, developers use our libraries, which abstract the differences between the native platforms.

LambdaNative and NativeScript can be primarily classified as "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" tools.

LambdaNative and NativeScript are both open source tools. It seems that NativeScript with 17.2K GitHub stars and 1.27K forks on GitHub has more adoption than LambdaNative with 1.15K GitHub stars and 85 GitHub forks.
