Edited for neutral language, but others can probably improve further. Who decides when to remove the "advertising" banner from the post?

I added a better description of how the product works, but it could use some links to relevant pages on their website detailing the technology. Sadly the information about compiling stuff via the command line, and for mobile, and even the JavaScript API, is a bit buried and ill-documented on their site. Hopefully they'll fix it in the future so we can describe the product better.

One thing worth noting is that in order to cross-compile, you need to register for a developer account and make use of the company's proprietary server software. And to build iPhone and Android apps, you need special SDKs from Apple and Google, which are subject to their own license restrictions. So Titanium isn't a purely open source solution, head-to-toe. However, the regular compiler / SDK is basically open source, and built applications aren't subject to any license restrictions. With all of that said, I'm keeping the term "open source" in the opening paragraph because it distinguishes the product from things like Adobe Air which are clearly not open source. But is it entirely accurate? (talk) 07:06, 27 November 2009 (UTC)

There are open source software written in .NET, while .NET is not open source. Also, ruby/php/python is available for all platform (not only desktop). —Preceding unsigned comment added by Unixcharles (talkcontribs) 01:11, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Merge into Appcelerator[edit]

Now that Appcelerator has been created, DGG has suggested that we merge in this page. Comments or objections? Note that I am a paid editor.—N at Appcelerator (my conflict of interest) 16:18, 2 February 2014 (UTC)
