To take advantage of bleeding edge functionality and the most recent bug fixes to the Titanium SDKs, without waiting for an official release, you can manually download and install a Continuous Integration Build (also known as CI Build or Continuous Build). Continuous Builds are packages compiled and published automatically when Titanium's open source repository has received a new code commit.
Be aware that only major releases of any of our software are officially supported and therefore, by the same token, we cannot accept Jira tickets or investigate problems that result from using a Continuous Build. That said, you may find discussions and workarounds for them in our Jira bug-tracking system.
You can download the latest continuous builds from http://builds.appcelerator.com.
Use the drop-down menu at the top of the page to select between the existing development branches. The master branch is the branch currently in active development, and will ultimately become a major release. You can determine the version number associated with this branch by hovering over one of the download links and inspecting the name of the file.
It's important to compare the SHA1 hash of the downloaded SDK archive with the one displayed on the download page, before you attempt to install it. Do not install the package if the SHA1 hashes don't match – this may indicate a corrupted package.
If you discover a corrupt package, simply download each previous day's release until you find one that is valid. There is no need to report it to us.
To install a Titanium SDK using the
appc cli, follow these steps:
appc ti sdk install -b master
masterbranch. You may substitute branch names seen at http://builds.appcelerator.com to grab bugfix/maintenance CI builds. These are typically of the naming scheme
appc ti sdk install -h
To install a Titanium SDK using Studio, follow these steps:
We strongly recommend that you use Studio or the CLI to manage SDKs. Please see the previous section.
To manually install a Titanium SDK, follow these steps:
Target Platform Type
OS X (Pre-Lion)
OS X (Lion+)
tiapp.xmlfile, and select the new SDK from the SDK Version drop-down menu
Especially in corporate environments, it may be necessary to compile Titanium SDKs and make them available on a server. Be aware that Studio requires that the SDK file structure follows this convention:
.zip root |--mobilesdk |-- osx | linux | win32 |-- VERSION.NUMBER
