Rich Cross-Platform Desktop Applications Using Open-Source Titanium

Titanium is an open-source platform that enables developers to build rich desktop applications using standard Web technologies. Titanium applications run natively on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows operating systems. At a high level, Titanium competes directly with Adobe AIR, although it differs from AIR in three major ways. First, Titanium is open source; it’s licensed under the Apache Public License (version 2). Second, Titanium is fully extensible; Titanium extensions can be written using a number of popular languages, including C++, JavaScript, Ruby and Python. Finally, Titanium opens up user interface programming to popular languages like Ruby and Python—a job typically reserved only for JavaScript. Both Ruby and Python have full access to the Document Object Model (DOM), which puts these languages on par with JavaScript for building rich, dynamic user interfaces.
