    Building a custom NativeScript XML view component for Android is uniquely different than it’s iOS counterpart because of the Android Context which must be considered. Let’s look at how to properly build a custom view component based on an underlying native view widget. We will also look at what happens when our include.gradle file is not setup properly including handling problems with minimum sdk targets with plugins. Specifically, we will implement this Android widget representing the Google I/O 2016 clock. Learn how to create a custom AndroidManifest.xml inside your plugin to merge with your app's manifest to override certain characteristics. Read detailed documentation about the Android app manifest file.
