Are you looking to create your own news app? In this tutorial, we will show you how to create a news application in Nova.
Let’s start by designing our application. Upon creating a new project in Nova, we can select the size of the screen we want to work with. Once we have selected the size, we can design the first screen of our application. We can design an app bar and some cards with news by using the shape tool, text tool, and by dragging and dropping images inside the software.
Once we have designed the first section of our application, we can duplicate the news card by pressing alt and dragging and dropping it. We can also create a component with it to duplicate it more easily. To make each news card unique, we create variables for each element, such as the image, title, and date. We do this by clicking on the button and giving it a name.
After designing the first screen of our application, we can move on to designing the second and third screens. We can add navigation icons to the top of the second screen and display a news article with an image and text. The third screen can display information about the application.
To connect data to our design, we can click on the add button and then api request in the data section. We give the api a name and paste in the url. Once we have connected the data widget to our row of news cards, we can connect each card to our list of breaking news. We can then make each card clickable and navigate to the second screen to display the full news article.
Lastly, we can make the column and row scrollable by adding the wrapper scroll view. Now that we have completed these steps, we have our very own news application.
In conclusion, creating a news app may seem like a daunting task, but with the help of Nova and this tutorial, it can be done easily. Follow these steps to design and connect data to your news app and have it up and running in no time.
