    alloy+ logo



    We have the capability to make the world's first bionic framework. Alloy+ will be that framework. Code Better... Stronger... Faster...


    What is Alloy+?

    Alloy+ is an entire framework built around Appcelerator Mobile and their Alloy product. The idea for this framework was built upon the concepts of MobileHero Adamantium and a desire to customize and extend Appcelerator Alloy for developers. How much faster or stronger all depends on YOU, the developer.

    There will be an assortment of alloy+ plugins (available as npm modules) that you can install in your project to help you take your existing development tools furthur than possible today. You can choose which modules are executed in your config.json file (which is part of your Alloy project). You can also easily create your own plugins by simply creating a npm module that follows a simple convention.

    How is this different than Adamantium?

    Adamantium is a custom build of Appcelerator Alloy.
    Alloy+ is a framework for modifying your app and code during the build process. Both accomplish getting new features and capabilities into your app. Alloy+ might take longer to execute and be limited in scope as it has to work within the available Alloy build hooks. It is, however, more flexible and easier to get up and running because it does not require replacing Alloy.


    NPM version

    Install in the root directory of your Appcelerator mobile project (the directory containing tiapp.xml).

    npm install --save alloy-plus


    To use plugins in your app, add entries for your plugins to your app's config.json file:

          "global": {
                "alloy+": {
                      "preload": [ "alloy-npm" ],
                      "precompile": [ "some-other-module" ],
                      "postcompile": [ "some-other-module" ],
                      "appjs": [ "some-other-module" ]

    Alloy+ Plugins

    ** Coming Soon! **

    Plugin Description
    npm Execute npm commands (Useful for installing/updating npm packages that are part of your mobile app)
    underscore Fix some issues with the implementation of underscore in Alloy and pave the way for upgrading to lodash
    babel Run babel transformations on your code during the build process, thus allowing support for ES6 and much more!
    nodejs Make require statements in your app support nodejs packages installed via npm
