Appcelerator Desktop

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , — michaelangela @ 11:23 pm

I may finally get my hand to try Appcelerator studio with a desktop app. It looks quite interesting. I like the idea of being able to use HTML5/CSS3/JS for the front end and use other scripting languages on the backend. PHP, Python and Ruby are all options but OS X Snow Leopard has trouble with PHP and Python’s setup isn’t as intuitive as Ruby’s setup. It’s a bit odd given Python’s influence in the Appcelerator environment. But Ruby looks fun. Looking forward to trying it out. Including Ruby gems seems straightforward too:

And then there is this nice little demo app to show off a bit of Ruby and Titanium:

Nice. Props to the folks who make this possible!
