NativeBase vs NativeScript: What are the differences?

What is NativeBase? Experience the awesomeness of React Native without the pain. NativeBase is a free and open source framework that enables developers to build high-quality mobile apps using React Native iOS and Android apps with a fusion of ES6. NativeBase builds a layer on top of React Native that provides you with basic set of components for mobile application development. This helps you to build world-class application experiences on native platforms.

What is NativeScript? 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.

NativeBase and NativeScript can be categorized as "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" tools.

NativeBase and NativeScript are both open source tools. It seems that NativeScript with 17.1K GitHub stars and 1.26K forks on GitHub has more adoption than NativeBase with 12.1K GitHub stars and 1.44K GitHub forks.

Work Box, Zege Technologies, and GeekyAnts are some of the popular companies that use NativeScript, whereas NativeBase is used by Evand, GeekyAnts, and Katomi.
