Titanium Alloy in Action, Paperback Book

Titanium Alloy in Action Paperback




Mastering Java and Objective-C to write high-quality Android and iOS apps isn’t necessary with the Titanium mobile development toolkit which can be used to create native mobile applications using standard web technologies like XML, TSS (similar to CSS and HTML), and JavaScript. Titanium compiles code against native platform SDKs to produce apps with the same features made possible using Objective-C and Java. Alloy, the open source MVC framework designed for Titanium, enforces good application design helping keep app's UI, business logic, and data separate so code is easier to read and maintain.


Titanium Alloy in Action
introduces Titanium and the Alloy MVC framework to web developers and graphic designers new to mobile app development. It begins with easy steps, laying out the tools and orienting readers to the world of mobile development, allowing them to quickly turn their designs into fully working apps. Using real-life examples, the book explains how to use XML, TSS, and JavaScript to build fully-native iOS and Android apps from a single code base, connect them to a cloud server, and deploy them to app stores. Along the way, it points out the main differences between iOS and Android, their visual language and UX paradigms, and the best approach to cross-platform mobile development.


Key Features

Written for readers with basic web development experience with HTML, CSS, and some JavaScript. No mobile development experience necessary.



Titanium is an Open Source, cross-platform mobile development SDK that allows developers to use web technologies like XML and Javascript to build mobile apps for multiple mobile devices. Apps written in Titanium are not HTML-based web apps. Web technologies are used to make the process easier, and Titanium compiles code into native mobile Apps with the same features of an app written by using native tools.
