Push static files to app without going through the app store

Microsoft created a platform/plugin/solution called Code Push where you can push html/css/javascript to a Cordova or React Native app without going through the app store because apparently when those files aren't changing the purpose of the app its legal. I think Ionic also has a feature like that. So I'm proposing something similar for NativeScript - Angular 2 where if you want to update your app and its just a Javascript/Typescript change you can publish/deploy a new version without submitting it to any app store
