Introducing Titanium Studio and Titanium Mobile 1.7

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Appcelerator Titanium Studio™ is now released and available for immediate download! Upgrade today and improve your mobile development productivity with Appcelerator’s new enterprise-grade IDE built on Aptana Studio.

Titanium Mobile 1.7 is also available today. It’s now 5-times faster to build apps for Android and iOS has tons of upgrades, including universal binary support.

We had over 500 developers sign up for our new Titanium Indie and Professional subscriptions last month. Now we’re making it even easier by offering a 30-day free trial on both products. Test drive premium software in Indie and premium software and support in Professional.

Introducing Titanium Studio

Use Titanium Studio to rapidly build, test and deploy mobile, desktop and web applications. Take advantage of new functionality like code completion, Git integration and a full-featured editor. Manage Titanium projects, test your app in the simulator or on device, automate app packaging and much more … all from within the new Titanium Studio.

Titanium Studio is an upgrade and replacement for Titanium Developer. Titanium Studio is an IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that will enhance the user’s experience while developing on the Titanium Platform.  All of the latest Mobile and Desktop SDKs will be maintained and kept up to date by Titanium Studio.  In addition to the nice features of an IDE ( i.e. syntax highlighting, content assist, code validation etc.) Titanium Studio also provides tight integration with the scripts used to create and run Titanium Projects.

We strongly encourage all users to begin migrating their development workflow to Titanium Studio. Titanium Developer source code will continue to be available through an Apache 2 open source license.

Titanium Mobile 1.7

Nothing beats a Titanium mobile release and 1.7 is a big one. Here’s what’s new:

  • Fastdev for Android speeds prototyping and testing by enabling local changes to become instantly available to your application while the simulator is running. This eliminates the time-consuming steps of packaging, building and deploying apps for each change.
  • New cross platform APIs for TCP/IP networking: Sockets and Streams, and supporting APIs for managing Buffers and Codecs.
  • Universal Binaries: develop a single app for deployment on iPhone and iPad
  • Major improvements related to memory management and memory leaks for iOS (both iPhone and iPad) which substantially improves stability and performance.

  1. Great news! But as a developer hobbyist and university student who like to play with things I am concerned about Titanium Studio. You say that the community version won’t have mobile debugging. Does this mean that it is impossible to debug for the mobile platform or just no debugging on mobile devices?

    I’d love to learn Titanium as I’m a fan of iOS, but not of lock-in (or Obj-C). But writing code without a debugger is like writing code with blindfolds.

    That’s pretty good news!

    That said, 1.7.0 final seems buggy to me (http://developer.appcelerator.com/question/121022/tableview-problem-with-17-final-but-not-in-beta)…1.7 beta works way better besides some inconsistencies.

    Besides that, there seems to be changes in the way Ti.include are handled too.

    I’ve been using Titanium for about six months and it is a decent tool. It has enabled me to build a cross-platform iOS and Android application for my company. At times it was very frustrating given the lack of a truly “connected” IDE. For instance, the first time I tried to port the app to Android, it immediately died after the splash screen. Quite a surprise given Titanium is a cross-platform tool and the app was running perfectly on iOS. I eventually found the Eclipse DDMS plug-in and determined that the use of an iOS-specific “button bar”, that’s not supported on Android, caused most of the problems. I substituted cross-platform code for the button bar and I was on my way to tweaking the differences between the platforms. Although I recommended Titanium to other developers in the enterprise, this experience and the lack of a truly “connected” IDE had me including a wheelbarrow full of caveats.

    With the release of Titanium Studio the wheelbarrow is gone. Now I will wholeheartedly recommend Titanium to other developers in my enterprise.

    I hope that this positive praise finds its way to the folks who acquired Aptana and within a few short months managed to weave their technology into a product that is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous version.

    I would also like to send praise to the forward-thinking folks that allow us to build modules that extend Titanium’s capabilities. Using modules, Titanium can probably accomplish anything on both Android and iOS.

    I recommend that you make this a more prominently discussed feature and actively encourage the community to develop free/pay modules that enhnace the Titanium universe.

  4. Awesome works!!

    I’m starting to use Titanium Studio.
    Titanium Studio is powerful coding tool.
    Code complete is very useful.

    But I have a popularity. It require to login check by network.
    Sometimes,developers edit or program our source code in offline.

    So I think that it is enough to login once a day to check.

    I appreciate your consideration.

    Best regards.
    Thank you.

    Hi,

    Nice IDE, however the need to stay online while developing is seriously annoying. At least add a checkbox to remember my credentials so i dont need to enter them every time!

    Given that Titanium Developer is EOL I have to now switch to Titanium Studio. Looking through this I am a bit concerned by the phrase “(all current features except mobile debugging)” for the community edition.

    Does this mean that I can debug during development on android emulator/iPhone simulator but no on the actual device OR does it mean that there is no debugging supported for mobile development – not even in emulator/simulator?

    This is an important issue and it’d be great to have clarification.

    If we can’t debug at all with the community edition it’s a major flaw from a developer’s point of view. A great upsell for yourselves, but it effectively invalidates the existence of the community edition.

    Any chance of an answer?

    Thanks in advance…

  7. I played a little bit with the Titanium Developer last year but due to the fact that I was still in school, I could not really dive into app development using this awesome tool. Now, Appcelerator is including this Eclipse Studio that I personally hate, but none the less I gave a try. I cannot even figure out how to compile and test my code because it seems that I have to configure this first (Why?). I really would like to know if there was a way of running the old “just a compiler” Appcelerator without this over bloated editor. Sorry for being so cold, but I am a text editor developer and hate tools that I have to configure before I use them, I just want something that works out of the box. At this time it is easier to get Xcode from launch to compile than using Appcelerator Studio. I really like what you guy’s are doing and I want to become a developer using your tool, but I need the simpler one that just compiles, and not one that wants to do everything.

    Thanks!

      @Renzo check out the Titanium command line tool:

      http://wiki.appcelerator.org/display/guides/Titanium+Command-line+tool

      It’s pretty basic, but should keep you out of Studio for most tasks. You’ll still need to do some configuration though – Titanium has hard external dependencies on other technologies, so there’s a bit of setup on the front end.

  8. Looks like a solid piece of software. The more tools that help produce quality apps on iOS and Android the better. I just started with Objective C so a tool like Titanium is actually pretty interesting.
