    Why should I use this plugin?

    alloy-underscore is an Alloy+ Plugin for fixing invalid usages of underscore.js within Alloy source code. This paves the way to be able to use newer versions of underscore.js or lodash.

    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.


    NPM version

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

    npm install --save @mobile/alloy-underscore


    To use this installed plugin in your app, merge the following to your app's config.json file:

          "global": {
                "tasks": {
                      "precompile": [ "alloy-underscore" ]

    Most often, you will probably want to run these in the precompile stage of the Alloy build process so that any changes done by this plugin can get picked up before copying files over to the build folder.


    Fix underscore.js issues in the Platform-specific resource folder
        "precompile": [ "@mobile/alloy-underscore" ]

    Other Alloy+ Plugins

    ** Coming Soon! 📣 **

    • npm: Execute npm during the Alloy build process
    • babel: Run babel transformations on your code during the build process
    • es6: Use ES6/ES2015 code in your apps via babel transformations!
    • nodejs: Make require statements in your app support nodejs packages installed via npm

    You can also search for more plugins developed by the community.
