How to Build a Mobile Application with Appcelerator Titanium

APPC_landscape

Today we will look at another cross platform app development tool – Appcelerator Titanium.

PhoneGap allows us to build an app that supports a variety of platforms , We were only left with the user interface (UI) that did not offer the same experience as that in a native application. Our PhoneGap solution rendered the UI with HTML5 and CSS3.

Appcelerator Titanium apps are used to provide the experience of a native UI, along with portability between the iOS, Android, and BlackBerry platforms.

Titanium provides UI objects for things like buttons, text fields, and lists and so on, and these are backed by the mobile platform’s truly faithful representation of the respective native controls

Appcelerator consists of a suite of products, including the Titanium SDK for building mobile applications, and some cloud services that can be used for the back end of the application.

An Eclipse-based IDE named Titanium Studio is offered by Appcelerator. This IDE contains a JavaScript editing environment, along with a source-level debugger.

Starting Your First Project 

  1. To use Titanium, you must create   a free developer account on the Titanium website.
  2. Once you have a developer account, you’ll have access to Appcelerator’s developer resources
  3. Now install the native SDKs for the platforms you wish to support.
  4. From the “File” menu, choose “New” → “Mobile App Project.” This will open a dialog box that lets you choose an Alloy or Classic development project.
  5. Selecting the “Default Alloy” project will give you a simple project with one “Hello World” screen, a useful starting point. Clicking “Next” opens the next dialog:
  6. Running the app is as easy as selecting a simulator in the device drop-down menu and pressing the “Run” button:

  1. The “Run” button has a drop-down menu of its own that provides options for debugging and packaging your application for distribution.

Defining The UI

On the first screen of our application, the UI is defined by the views/calculator.xmlfile. It contains elements to describe each TextField, Button, Label and so on on the screen.

Navigating Between Screens: Dealing With Platform Differences

function clickedSettings(e) {

var settingsController = Alloy.createController(‘settings’);

var win = settingsController.getView();

if (Alloy.Globals.navgroup) {

Alloy.Globals.navgroup.openWindow(win);

} else if (OS_ANDROID) {

win.open();

}

}
