- WYSIWYG editing of the MXML(OK),
- Action-script with code completion(semi OK, missing look-ups of external libraries for code completion)
While I was looking at getting another project going in AIR after a work induced hiatus, I found some information about Titanium. Basically whats nice is:
- Mostly JS based, with support for PHP/Python.
- A good (Apache style) license I can probably trust.
Now I'm intrigued and wanna see how easy porting from AIR to Titanium will be for my simple app... Will be reporting back soon (unless work kidnaps me again a few weeks!!!)
Just tried to run one of the sample apps and here's my 2c:
- (very) few sample apps: Tweetanium,
- a 2.3Mb download! for a Twitter webapp??
- On Kubuntu remember to set the http_proxy environmental variable before running the "installer" (Air detects it from KDE/desktop settings automatically!) then
- It proceeded to download (more than the 2.3Mb!?) - this seemed like the support libraries for titanium, networking, disk access etc. After getting that sorted,
- It would not run in any way. Or be killed except to kill -9 the process.
- There is no encrypted package, all the JS of the app is clearly visible/editable before install - security seems lacking although I don't know if its only for some of these example apps, but then why are they on the "featured" list?
From my quick dive into titanium it seems people like the tech it provides a lot more than it is ready for production use (compared with what I've experienced with AIR). sorry.
