Titanium CLI

Titanium CLI is a Command Line Tool for creating and building Titanium Mobile applications and modules. It's open-source and easy to use. We've designed Titanium to be suitable for command line beginners, but still be powerful and extensible enough for production usage.

Build Status Dependency Status devDependency Status NPM version Greenkeeper badge


The Titanium CLI requires Node.js 0.10.x or newer.


[sudo] npm install -g titanium

Bleeding Edge

You can download the latest and greatest unstable Titanium CLI code by running the following:

[sudo] npm install -g git://

Obtaining a Titanium SDK

You will need to download a Titanium SDK 3.0 or newer:

# stable release (recommended)
titanium sdk install --default

There are times when the latest stable release has an issue or lacks a feature in which case you may want to try an unstable Titanium SDK build. These builds are not recommended for production use, but should work for development.

# unstable next release
titanium sdk install --branch 3_1_X --default

# bleeding edge
titanium sdk install --branch master --default

Setting up the Titanium CLI

Before you begin using the Titanium CLI, you should configure it by running the "setup" command:

titanium setup

It will prompt you with a number of questions such as your e-mail address (for logging into the Appcelerator Network), the location of your Android SDK, and so on.


titanium <command> [options]

Built-in Commands


Configure your CLI settings.

If you omit an option, the CLI will prompt you for the value.

Hacking the Titanium CLI

In order to begin hacking on the Titanium CLI, you need to download and install git.

If you have already installed a previous version of the Titanium CLI, it's recommended you uninstall the old one first:

[sudo] npm uninstall -g titanium

The Titanium CLI is essentially pure JavaScript, so there is no build process. You just need to pull the code and resolve the dependendencies.

git clone
cd titanium
npm install
sudo npm link

Running Unit Tests

To run the unit tests, simply run:

node forge test

Running Code Coverage

To generate the code coverage, you first must install node-jscoverage. The easist way to do this is run:

git clone
cd node-jscoverage
sudo make install

Then run:

node forge test-cov

It will generate a file called coverage.html in the Titanium CLI directory.

Looking for the really old CLI?

Don't worry, it's still around. You can install it by running:

[sudo] npm install –g titanium@0.0.26
