Hi. Instead of using XCode directly I was advised by a friend to look at Titanium because it supports cross-platform development.
So I downloaded it. But when I look at the "Getting started" guide, it's a bunch of links in Wiki format full of articles.
Is there a simple tutorial somewhere that:
- Shows how to create a real, simple app that submits data online and gets data back to show to the user?
- Works on iPhone + Blackberry + iPad + Android?
I am hoping there's one app I need to develop and maintain, and the Titanium platform will automatically generate the code for iPhone, Android, etc?
Thanks for any pointers or direction, because that Getting Started guide is really quite nonsensical to a beginner.
I am good with PHP and databases, and willing to learn Objective C type languages, but hopefully I don't need Java or anything.
Kitchen Sink sample application is the best example to start with. http://developer.appcelerator.com/doc/kitchensink
(deleted link as your apparently not allowed to link to anything outside of 'Appcelerator.com' which makes the forums really useful...
I can see how the guides were confusing before. I have rewritten the Documentation Guides Homepage and, specifically, the New Users / Getting Started section. I hope this clarifies it.
A great tutorial that explains how to create an app that works with a remote webservice is available in the HTTPClient with PHP and MySQL guide.
Hope this helps

Thanks. I downloaded it, imported it. It shows me some black window with "com.appcelerator.kitchensink" stuff in there.
I click "Save Changes".
It shows me a message on top right, "Your changes have been saved".
Then what? This window just stays there. What now? Where do I start?
Would appreciate a simple starting tutorial that explains how to use this thing, how the different functions and features work, etc. Something that's a little smarter in its construction than the crap "Getting Started Guide".
