TiBrowser Widget Appcelerator Titanium Appcelerator Alloy

This is a widget for the Alloy MVC framework of Appcelerator's Titanium platform.

It provides an in-app browser, with back, forward, and refresh buttons, and options to open the current page in the default browser, or copy the current url into the clipboard.

iOS Android

Get it gitTio

Download this repository and consult the Alloy Documentation on how to install it, or simply use the gitTio CLI: $ gittio install be.grincheux.tiBrowser


In a view

  <Widget id="browser" src="be.grincheux.tiBrowser" url="" color="#f00" tintColor="#fff" autoOpen="true" />

If autoOpen is omitted or false, don't forget to add the following code to your controller:


In a controller

Alloy.createWidget("be.grincheux.tiBrowser", {
  url: "",
  color: Alloy.Globals.primary,
  tintColor: "#fff",
  autoOpen: true

Or you can set options after creating the widget if needed.

var browser = Alloy.createWidget("be.grincheux.tiBrowser");

            // At this point, data is a String. We need to parse to convert to an Object
            var obj = JSON.parse(data);
            alert(obj.key + ' - ' + obj.whatever);
