    Titanium CLI

    Titanium CLI is a Command Line Tool for creating and building Titanium Mobile applications and modules. It's open-source and easy to use. We've designed Titanium to be suitable for command line beginners, but still be powerful and extensible enough for production usage.

    The Titanium CLI requires Node.js 0.10.x or newer.


    [sudo] npm install -g titanium

    Bleeding Edge

    You can download the latest and greatest unstable Titanium CLI code by running the following:

    [sudo] npm install -g git://

    Obtaining a Titanium SDK

    You will need to download a Titanium SDK 3.0 or newer:

    # stable release (recommended)
    titanium sdk install --default

    There are times when the latest stable release has an issue or lacks a feature in which case you may want to try an unstable Titanium SDK build. These builds are not recommended for production use, but should work for development.

    # unstable next release
    titanium sdk install --branch 3_1_X --default
    # bleeding edge
    titanium sdk install --branch master --default

    Setting up the Titanium CLI

    Before you begin using the Titanium CLI, you should configure it by running the "setup" command:

    titanium setup

    It will prompt you with a number of questions such as your e-mail address (for logging into the Appcelerator Network), the location of your Android SDK, and so on.


    titanium <command> [options]

    Built-in Commands


    Configure your CLI settings.

    Implementation not complete

    titanium config <setting> <value>


    Displays help or help for a specific command.

    titanium help
    titanium --help
    titanium help <command>
    titanium <command> --help


    Logs into the Appcelerator Network

    Implementation not complete

    Login requires both user and password options to be passed in.

    titanium login <username> <password>

    If you omit an option, the CLI will prompt you for the value.

    titanium login


    Logs out of the Appcelerator Network

    Implementation not complete

    titanium logout


    Download and install Titanium SDKs

    sdk install

    Installs a specific version of the Titanium SDK. If no version is specified, it assumes the latest.

    titanium sdk install
    titanium sdk install <version>
    titanium sdk install <version> --force

    Download, install , and set as default SDK.

    titanium sdk install <version> --default

    Download and install the latest version for the specified branch

    titanium sdk install --branch master

    sdk uninstall

    Uninstalls a Titanium SDK.

    titanium sdk uninstall <version>

    sdk list

    Lists all installed Titanium SDKs. Optionally lists all branches and releases.

    titanium sdk list
    titanium sdk list -b
    titanium sdk list --branches
    titanium sdk list -r
    titanium sdk list --releases
    titanium sdk list -br
    titanium sdk list --branches --releases


    Reconfigures the Titanium CLI by asking you a series of questions.

    titanium status
    titanium status --output json


    Displays the current version of the CLI and exits.

    titanium -v
    titanium --version


    Displays information about your development environment including Xcode installs, iOS SDKs, Android SDKs, and so on.

    titanium info
    titanium info -o json

    Hacking the Titanium CLI

    In order to begin hacking on the Titanium CLI, you need to download and install git.

    If you have already installed a previous version of the Titanium CLI, it's recommended you uninstall the old one first:

    [sudo] npm uninstall -g titanium

    The Titanium CLI is essentially pure JavaScript, so there is no build process. You just need to pull the code and resolve the dependendencies.

    git clone
    cd titanium
    npm install
    sudo npm link

    Running Unit Tests

    To run the unit tests, simply run:

    node forge test

    Running Code Coverage

    To generate the code coverage, you first must install node-jscoverage. The easist way to do this is run:

    git clone
    cd node-jscoverage
    sudo make install

    Then run:

    node forge test-cov

    It will generate a file called coverage.html in the Titanium CLI directory.

    Looking for the really old CLI?

    Don't worry, it's still around. You can install it by running:

    [sudo] npm install –g titanium@0.0.26
