Welcome to the Titanium open source project. Titanium provides a platform for web developers to build cross-platform, native mobile applications using JavaScript.

Currently, Titanium supports mobile smartphone operating systems such as Apple iPhone, Google's Android, and Mobile Web. Other platforms, such as Windows Phone, are currently in development.

Titanium is licensed under the OSI approved Apache Public License (version 2). Please see the LICENSE file for specific details.

Download Pre-built Titanium


With Titanium, you use JavaScript to code your application. Titanium's compiler will compile your application code into an efficient native executable for each target mobile platform. Titanium writes native code so you don't have to. :)

  • Native apps built using JavaScript
  • Apps are compiled and run locally with full offline support
  • Support for native platform UI controls
  • Third-party JavaScript support such as jQuery, Dojo, etc.
  • Support for Web views incorporating HTML5, CSS etc.
  • Support for in-application SQL database
  • Support for Geolocation (compass, geolocation, forward/reverse lookup)
  • Support for Camera (taking Photos, playing and recording Video)
  • Support for Photo Album (reading and writing)
  • Support for Contacts Database / Address Book
  • Support for Streaming Audio and Recording Audio, Audio Input Levels, Mic etc
  • Support for Vibration
  • Support for Social APIs such as Facebook Connect, Twitter, etc
  • Support for Yahoo YQL
  • Support for Web Services via REST, SOAP
  • Support for native Maps
  • Support for Push Notifications
  • Support for in-application Email
  • Support for in-application SMS, Telephone
  • Support for Filesystem (reading, writing, etc)
  • Support for Gestures (such as Shake)
  • Support for Platform and Device capabilities
  • Support for complex native views such as Coverflow, Image viewers, Table views, Grouped Views, Composites, etc.
  • Completely extensible via Module API for building your own controls or extending capabilities at compile-time

And much, much more.


Alloy is the MVC application framework built on top of Titanium. It is optional. It rocks. Check it out if you're considering using Titanium. It is also a separate open source project available under Apache Public License.

Titanium is an open source project. Titanium wouldn't be where it is now without contributions by the community. Please consider forking Titanium to improve, enhance or fix issues. If you feel like the community will benefit from your fork, please open a pull request.

To protect the interests of the Titanium contributors, Appcelerator, customers and end users we require contributors to sign a Contributors License Agreement (CLA) before we pull the changes into the main repository. Our CLA is simple and straightforward - it requires that the contributions you make to any Appcelerator open source project are properly licensed and that you have the legal authority to make those changes. This helps us significantly reduce future legal risk for everyone involved. It is easy, helps everyone, takes only a few minutes, and only needs to be completed once.

You can digitally sign the CLA online. Please indicate your email address in your first pull request so that we can make sure that will locate your CLA. Once you've submitted it, you no longer need to send one for subsequent submissions.

Building Locally

Previously Titanium used scons and python scripts to build the SDK. If you'd like to build the SDK locally, we've replaced scons with some Node.JS scripts. Typical usage would be:

cd build
npm install
node scons.js build --android-ndk /opt/android-ndk --android-sdk /opt/android-sdk
node scons.js package
node scons.js install

The build and package commands will default to all target platforms on your host OS unless explicitly specified. (i.e. Android, iOS, and Mobileweb on OS X; Windows, Android and MobileWeb on Windows)

The build command will look for Android NDK and SDK using $ANDROID_NDK and $ANDROID_SDK env variables if not explicitly passed using command line arguments.

You can use the -h flag to display the full list of comands and options.

cd build
npm install
node scons.js build [platform1] [platform2] --android-ndk /opt/android-ndk --android-sdk /opt/android-sdk /Users/build/android-sdk-macosx
node scons.js package [platform1] [platform2]
node scons.js install
