Today, after three-odd years in the lab (including almost a year in public beta), we’re taking the wraps off Hyperloop. Wait–make that:
What is Hyperloop? We think of it as Titanium on rocket fuel.
But of course there are always some APIs that are distinct to the OS and not covered by the Titanium API set. To use these capabilities, you needed to build custom Titanium modules in the native OS language. (We provide some of these modules; our Marketplace provides lots of others from community members.)
Hyperloop comes with our Pro, Team bundle, and Enterprise plans. (These kinds of innovations aren’t possible without lots of hard work and R&D investment.) Speaking of which, I want to thank all our teams who’ve made Hyperloop possible. I want also to recognize a few key members of our dev community, whose active engagement across GitHub and Jira contributed mightily to Hyperloop’s final push. These folks are Michael Gangolf, Pier Paolo Ramon, and Brian Garcia– our thanks to each of you!
Added to our recent announcements of App Designer and App Preview, Hyperloop crowns what has been a terrific summer of innovation. We’re excited to see the kinds of innovations these products unleash across our customers and users. (For installation instructions and other details on the 5.4.0 GA release, see the release notes.)
Oh, and yes: we’ve got even more cool stuff in store…
Will classic Titanium modules continue to be supported?
Yes, existing Titanium modules (built with Java for Android and Objective-C for iOS) will still be supported by the SDK.
What is Hyperloop’s relationship with Swift?
Titanium works for Windows. Does Hyperloop?
We are planning Windows support in the future, but currently Hyperloop supports iOS and Android only.
Is Hyperloop available as part of the Platform trial?
Yes, you have full access to Hyperloop in trial. However, use of Hyperloop beyond trial requires a Pro plan or above.
If I build an app using Hyperloop, what happens if I later downgrade to the Indie plan?
If you downgrade your plan or if your plan expires, your production apps will continue to function but you will not be able to make Hyperloop-related changes without a plan that supports Hyperloop.
