Appcelerator Titanium Build Status

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

Currently supported native platforms are iOS, Android and Windows Phone / Windows Desktop.

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

Features

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.

  • Native apps built using JavaScript (no hybrid, no embedded WebView)
  • Apps are compiled and run locally with full offline support
  • Support for native platform UI controls (TabGroup (iOS), ActionBar (Android), AppBar (Windows), ...)
  • Support for watchOS targets
  • 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 Calendar (creating & fetching Events)
  • Support for 3D-Touch (Peek and Pop, Application Shortcuts, ...)
  • 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, 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 (create, read, write, etc.)
  • Support for Gestures (such as Shake and Pinch)
  • Support for Platform and Device capabilities
  • Support for complex native views such as Coverflow, Image Views, Table Views, Grouped Views, Composites, etc.
  • Support for Web Views incorporating HTML5, CSS etc.
  • Completely extensible via Module API and Hyperloop for building your own controls or extending capabilities

And much, much more (see our Documentation for more infos).

Hyperloop

Use Hyperloop, our latest addition to the Appcelerator Platform, to extend your Titanium apps by native API's using JavaScript. Prior to Hyperloop, you would use native modules to extend the Titanium API. With Hyperloop, you are now able to implement native classes, 3rd-Party libraries (Cocoapods, local frameworks, .aar files) and more directly into your apps. Hyperloop is available for iOS, Android and Windows Phone (Tech Preview).

Features

Cross-Platform Reuse

Build and maintain apps in a fraction of the time with up to 95% code reuse.

Direct API Access

Access 100% of platform APIs directly, with instant support for each new OS release.

JavaScript Everywhere

Create mobile apps using the world’s most popular programming language.

3rd-Party Libraries

Incorporate 3rd-party native libraries using JavaScript, with no changes required.

Custom Animations

Easily create complex custom effects like dynamic animations using JavaScript.

Run Native

Mobile app development for every major mobile OS – with no hybrid compromises.

Example

Create a native view in iOS, Android and Windows Phone:

// iOS
var view = new UIView();

// Android
var view = new View(activity);

// Windows Phone
var view = new Canvas();

Getting Started

Check out our Hyperloop Sample App and Hyperloop Programming Guide to get started with Hyperloop today!

Alloy

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.

Example

Manage your application scope by separating your code into different models, views, controllers and more:

index.xml (View)

<Alloy>
  <Window title="Titanium and Alloy">
    <Button onClick="handleClick" id="myButton">Click me!</Button>
  </Window>
</Alloy>

index.js (Controller)

function handleClick() {
  alert('Hello from the Controller!');
}

index.tss (Style)

Window: {
  backgroundColor: 'white'
}

"#myButton": {
  width: 200,
  height: 30,
  backgroundColor: 'green'
}

Contributing

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:

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

The build and package commands will default to all target platforms on your host OS unless explicitly specified. (i.e. Android, iOS on macOS; Windows and Android on Windows). It will compile, package and install the locally-built SDK for you as well, so you can test it in your own applications without any further procedures.

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.

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