Native modules + some insights in the new Hyperloop

Ti & Native Development Mads Møller CTO – Napp @nappdev

TITANIUM & NATIVE • • • • • • Introduction to native Why native? 3rd party libraies Example module Hyperloop & its future Q&A





WHY NATIVE? • Leverage native features – 3rd party libraires – Create new UI components – Customize Ti components • Performance – Speed – Animation – Heavy operations • Better understanding of the platform – You gain a lot of knowledge of how Android & iOS really works!


WHY NATIVE - IS IT HARD? • Is it hard to learn? – Yes and No. (not really) • It requires – Learn a new syntax – Understand how the os platform works – Learn how Titanium works • Benefits – Freedom to build what you want


THIRD PARTY LIBRARIES • Soo many services – We want to use them inside Titanium • Often easy to implement

THIRD PARTY LIBRARIES • Example – Lets build a TestFlight module • Why Testflight? – Simple API – Easy to get started

TESTFLIGHT – MODULE • What is Testflight? – Over the air distribution of apps – Test & exception reporting What to do: 1. 2. 3. Grab the SDK Read the docs and quick start guide Lets implement it Source code:




HYPERLOOP • What is Hyperloop? – Next-generation compiler that converts JavaScript source code into native code. – It will support iOS, Android and Win8 – Multi threaded, Super Performance • Hyperloop == Ti.Next – No. But it’s the foundation for Ti.Next. Hyperloop will compile the new javascript based Titanium SDK. • How to get it? – – npm install -g hyperloop

HYPERLOOP - IS IT HARD? • Is it hard to learn? – Yes and No. (not really) • It requires – Learn a new special kind of javascript – Understand how the os platform works – Learn how Titanium works • Benefits – Freedom to build what you want – Do it in javascript



HYPERLOOP – MY OWN OPINION • Super interesting – Great performance – Hopefully more module developers • Still not super easy to learn – Since it’s a new special javascript syntax, its hard to find great learning resources. – What does this line of code mean? (it is javascript) UIButton.alloc().initWithFrame(CGRectMake(110, 100, 100, 44));

HYPERLOOP – MY OWN OPINION • Whats still missing? – Simplier way to do modules – Syntax should be less OS oriented

HYPERLOOP – FUTURE • Cross platform modules – – – – Single codebase Build an abstraction layer Will make Titanium even more powerful E.g. Testflight module could be a unified module • Windows & Mac desktop apps – Write desktop apps using Hyperloop • Ti.Next • • Might be that abstraction we need for module development Looking forward to see this implementation

HYPERLOOP – FUTURE • Leverage C libraries – – – – SVG, PDF, OpenCV, game engines etc. Lots of libs out there Enormous potential Native performance
