NativeScript vs Swift: What are the differences?
What is Swift? An innovative new programming language for Cocoa and Cocoa Touch. Writing code is interactive and fun, the syntax is concise yet expressive, and apps run lightning-fast. Swift is ready for your next iOS and OS X project — or for addition into your current app — because Swift code works side-by-side with Objective-C.
NativeScript and Swift are primarily classified as "Cross-Platform Mobile Development" and "Languages" tools respectively.
"Access to the entire native api" is the top reason why over 55 developers like NativeScript, while over 241 developers mention "Ios" as the leading cause for choosing Swift.
NativeScript and Swift are both open source tools. It seems that Swift with 48.2K GitHub stars and 7.71K forks on GitHub has more adoption than NativeScript with 17.1K GitHub stars and 1.26K GitHub forks.

Swift has a broader approval, being mentioned in 979 company stacks & 526 developers stacks; compared to NativeScript, which is listed in 10 company stacks and 23 developer stacks.
