Download and Installation

Download Links for Titanium Desktop SDK 1.2.0 Release Candidate 3:
* Windows
* Mac OS X
* Linux 32-bit
* Linux 64-bit

You may download the related API Documentation here.

To install, you’ll want to download the appropriate distribution above and then extract into your Titanium directory.

For example, on OSX, your Titanium directory will be under either /Library/Application Support/Titanium or~/Library/Appcelerator Support/Titanium

On Linux ~/.titanium

On Windows 7 C:ProgramDataTitanium and on Windows XP C:Documents and SettingsAll UsersApplication DataTitanium

Once you locate your Titanium directory, extract the zip file into this directory. The zip file will expand the contents and create/overlay some new directories for 1.2.0-RC3.

NOTE for OSX users who use Safari to download: Safari by default will auto uncompress your downloads, how handy. However, if you have a directory named desktopsdk, your extracted directory will be renamed.

Now, you’ll need to restart Titanium Studio to pick up the new release. Once restarted, remember to change your application SDK version and then click the ‘Save’ button.

You should now be able to test with the release candidate software.

  1. The new python docs are pretty confusing now, can we just have them as two completely different sections. 1.2 and 1.1?

    One thing I don’t understand in the new python scheme is how I can call an python function from javascript. Only the opposite seems possible.

  2. Webkit Inspector still doesn’t work under OSX 10.7 throwing huge exception in Console. Also ‘Inspect Element’ is missing from context menu so currently this is pretty much useless.

  3. Just tried ‘Install Titanium SDK from URL…’ option via TitaniumStudio > Help menu. Worked beautifully if you copy your OS zip url from the above list.

    Thanks guys.

  4. Installing via Ti Studio on OSX worked for me but I got problems executing PHP within my App because PHP librairies were not correctly installed (symlinks in modules/osx/php/ dir were corrupted.) Overriding them fixed the problem.
