Like all cross-platform frameworks, Titanium has its shortcomings. In this video, Tom Duffy explores what you leave behind when choosing Titanium for your next project.
- While Titanium apps can be written entirely…in Java Script, it's almost always a good idea to separate…the view of the app from it's logic.…That way designers can work on the view…while coders work on the logic.…Titanium does this by using the…Alloy Model View Controller Framework.…Alloy uses XML to abstract Titanium UI components.…This is a good thing when you want…to get designers involved in creating the view.…The caveat, is that designers won't necessarily need to…learn the XML syntax used by Alloy in Titanium development.…
To get a feel for using XML in a Titanium app,…visit the Alloy XML markup page.…And to see the available UI components and their…accompanying XML markup, head over to the Titanium UI page…Alloy also uses a proprietary language for declaring styles…Titanium style sheets are kind of…like CSS but they really aren't.…They use JSON- like syntax to declare styles rather than…plain CSS, again getting designers involved in creating the…view museau will need to learn the syntax used.…
See the Alloy styles and themes page for more info.…
