🛑    Axway support for Amplify products has ended for most products related to mobile and cloud.

A few of the open-source versions of Axway Amplify products will live on after Axway Amplify End-of-Life (EOL) announcements. However, all closed-source projects and most open-source projects are now dead.

 

👉    A group of Axway employees, ex-Axway employees, and some developers from Titanium community have created a legal org and now officially decide all matters related to future of these products.

{nativeloop} cli

npm version

Overview

{nativeloop} is many tools in one package:

  • a command line (cli) tool for creating and working with existing {nativeloop} mobile applications
  • a compile-time library for creating awesome mobile apps
  • a run-time library for enhancing mobile apps
  • an Appcelerator Titanium Alloy widget for augmenting Alloy mobile apps.

🔜 Only a few of the cli commands have been implemented at this time. Feel free to test out the functionality that exists right now and stay tuned as more features are added soon!

What is {nativeloop}?

{nativeloop} is a framework for building awesome native apps using node.js style javascript. It provides developers with access to an extremely rapid development process without compromising on the delivered product.

{nativeloop} is open-source (MIT) and is built upon the open-source version of appcelerator and other open-source products. If you like what you see, contribute to this and other open-source projects!

(Really) Quick Start

Install {nativeloop} (if you have not already done this) and create new project!

npm install -g nativeloop
nativeloop create mycoolapp

Quick Start (with some options)

Install {nativeloop}

Option 1: Install Globally

This is your quickest and easiest way to get started with {nativeloop}. Installing globally will allow it to be accessed by any our your mobile projects and give you access to the command line interface (CLI). If you need to use a specific version of {nativeloop}, use Option 2 in addition to this step.

npm install -g nativeloop

Option 2: Install Locally

Just as quick and easy, but this will allow you to use a specific version of {nativeloop} for your mobile project. Simply run this in the root of your mobile project! In order to use the CLI commands, be sure to also Install Globally

npm install --save nativeloop

Option 3: Install using gitTio coming soon!

🔜 Not available yet, but coming very soon!!

Install this as a widget using gitTio (http://gitt.io). We hope to have this option available soon!

gittio install nativeloop
