Titanium All-in-One Installer

This is an EXPERIMENTAL project to build an all-in-one install script for Appcelerator Titanium.

You can run the installer from a Unix/OSX command shell:

> sudo curl | sudo sh

After installation, you should create a new project:

> titanium create --platforms android --id --name foo --type app --url -d .

Then run the android simulator:

> cd foo
> titanium build --platform android --avd-id 2

As of Titanium 3.1.0 there is a bug that prevents Android from running if you don't specify an avd-id and if you have fewer than 7 defined platforms in your Android environment (crazy, i know). This has been fixed and is available in the upcoming 3.2.0 release, which means you will no longer need to specify the avd-id. If you are using Studio, you will not experience this bug since Studio correctly passes the right avd-id each time it launches the CLI.

What does this installer do?

The installer will attempt to discover what software you have on your system and then attempt to update it where possible.

  • Check for node and npm
  • Check for java
  • Check for titanium CLI (if not found, install it)
  • Check for android (if not found, install it)
  • Check for xcodebuild (currently, will only warn if not available)
  • Check for latest titanium SDK (if not installed, update)


This requires Titanium SDK 3.1.0 or later (might work with 3.0 but hasn't been tested and likely won't).

Currently, this installer cannot install Xcode since Apple has it behind a paywall.

The script will attempt to install Android if not found.

This installer does not yet install Titanium Studio but will eventually.

To Do

  • Add Studio Download & Install Support
  • Add Proxy Support
  • Silent option


Right now, this works on a very limited set of environments.

  • Mac OSX 10.8.3

Currently, this does not support Windows (no good command shell) and likely won't work on Linux (although that is planned).

Bug Reportings

If you find a bug or encountering problems, please open a GitHub issue. Even better, fork it, fix it and send me a pull request. :)


This is experimental software and likely won't work on your system. Please be careful and backup your system before using this project on your development machine. It likely will completely screw up your dev environment so please be careful!
