I started developing with NativeScript at its initial public release. A couple versions later they added plugin support to NativeScript. So, I proceeded to develop one of the first plugins for NativeScript. If you check the Authors page; you will see I am still one of the top plugin developers in the entire eco-system.
Well, shortly after a few plugins were released; I realized we needed some way to track them. I started maintaining a manually updated list (you can still find my repo with it). As the plugins started taking off; I got very tired of doing all the manual work to keep the list accurate. So PNR (Plugins.Nativescript.Rocks) was born and it was the first NativeScript plugin site for all the community plugins.
Fast forward a couple years, and where there used to be no sites; there is now at least three sites that categorize plugins for NativeScript. As I have a passion for Plugins, PNR has almost always led the way. As such just some of the things we have been the first to implement:
Automatic cataloging of Plugins from NPM
Realtime cataloging of Plugins from NPM
Showing the platforms supported in plugins
Ability to eliminate bad plugins from showing
Elimination of bad data
Author & plugin stats
v2 & v3 support
Sorting and Filters
Native or Compiled plugin
User ranking and comments
