Silver(Fe) - A MVC Framework for Titanium SDK

An MVC framework that gives you a Facebook-alike app on both iOS and Android.

It doesn't have the model part, but you can easily add it as global objects. I will add the model part in the future.

This project consists of the framework's files, which are fe.js and /Resources/fe/base/*. It's very lightweighted.

The example project here shows you how to build navigate betweens pages (with animation), and how to build Facebook-alike menu.

It works on both iOS and Android. I hope you like it!

Version: 0.0.1

How to setup a controller

Your controller must be in /Resources/fe/controller, and the corresponding view must be in Resources/fe/views.

A controller and its corresponding view should have identical name.

For example:

/Resources/fe/controllers/News.js
/Resources/fe/views/News.js

Moreover, you need to add the controller's name into Fe.includeControllers(...). Life's not perfect.

In app.js, it should look like this:

Fe.includeControllers([
	'News',
	'Profile', 
	'SomePage', 
	'SomePageAgain',
	'Frame'
]);

At the main entry point, you also need to specify the first controller with:

Fe.setRootController(Fe.controllers.Frame);
Fe.openWindow();

And call Fe.openWindow() to open the window.

How to write a controller

please refer to the object __exports.

If you declare __exports.some_function, then the controller will have some_function method.

We also have a life-cycle for a controller, you can declare these methods:

__exports.viewLoaded = function() { ... };

__exports.viewWillAppear = function() { ... };
__exports.viewDidAppear = function() { ... };
__exports.viewWillDisappear = function() { ... };
__exports.viewDidDisappear = function() { ... };

The methods' names are self-explanatory.

How to switch between controllers

You can call Fe.pushController(Fe.controllers.SomePage) in order to switch to the SomePage controller.

Or you can call Fe.popController() in order to switch back to the previous controller.

Tips

  • Fe is a global variable
  • Fe.controllers is an object that contains the instances of controllers. For example, you can refer to the News controller using Fe.controllers.News

Advice

This is a very young framework. You need to study its source code in order to use it.

Just don't be lazy, ok?
