Ti.DrawerLayout gittio

Native Android Navigation Drawer for Titanium

This is a fork of Tripvi/Ti.DrawerLayout


This module adds support for using the DrawerLayout in Titanium Apps.

The Drawer Layout is a view that can be pulled from the edge of a window. This can answer various purposes. The most common use case is the Navigation Drawer as seen in the above screenshot. The Navigation Drawer displays navigation options in a drawer which slides in from the left edge.

To expand the drawer the user can either touch the app icon or swipe from the left edge. The navigation drawer overlays the content but not the action bar.


  • Grab the latest package from the dist folder
  • Install it following this guide
  • with gittio: $ gittio install com.tripvi.drawerlayout


Here's an example of how to use the module.

Please note: This module requires a Theme without ActionBar such as Theme.AppCompat.Light.NoActionBar since it adds a Toolbar to its own layout. If you do not want the Toolbar, just pass the hideToolbar property at creation-time.

// Load module
var TiDrawerLayout = require('com.tripvi.drawerlayout');

// define left and center view
var leftView = Ti.UI.createView({backgroundColor:'gray'});
var centerView = Ti.UI.createView({backgroundColor:'white'});

// create the Drawer
var drawer = TiDrawerLayout.createDrawer({
    leftView: leftView,
    centerView: centerView

// create a window
var win = Ti.UI.createWindow();

// add the drawer to the window

// listen for the open event...
win.addEventListener('open', function(){
    // access activity and action bar
    var activity = win.getActivity();
    var actionbar = activity.getActionBar();
    if (actionbar){
        // this makes the drawer indicator visible in the action bar
        actionbar.displayHomeAsUp = true;
        // open and close with the app icon
        actionbar.onHomeIconItemSelected = function() {

// open the window;
