Titanium Quickie: A Simple Integration of Alloy and Kinvey - Clearly Innovative | Web and Mobile DevelopmentClearly Innovative | Web and Mobile Development

When developing solutions for clients, we here at Clearly Innovative use Appcelerator Cloud Services, in fact we have built mobile application solutions and nodejs based websites for multiple clients using the platform. We also believe that the new pricing model, announced a few weeks ago, makes Appcelerator Cloud Services an extremely compelling offering that I believe you MUST at least try before looking elsewhere.

There are plenty of other options out there for these types of services, all with their own strengths and weakness; and I have written samples and tutorials demonstrating some of them in the past here in this blog. One of the services I have covered is Kinvey; they have a similar service, and recently someone pinged me on twitter asking about integrating Kinvey with Appcelerator Titanium Alloy.

Before I go any further, If you have not started to look at Appcelerator Titanium Alloy as a framework to help you build your mobile solutions, then you are missing out. The example I have included here was written for use in an Alloy Project.

Back to Kinvey; they support the basic entities that we need to integrate them into Alloy, Models and Controllers. I have also implemented this sample without using the model.js files that are commonplace in most Alloy Applications. The quickest way to integrate Kinvey with Alloy is to keep it simple and use the objects that are provided to you.

I have listed below a very basic introductory example of integrating Kinvey with Appcelerator Titanium and Alloy. There is an assumption that you have a basic understanding of Alloy, BackboneJS and Kinvey… Enjoy

 

This is just a basic example to introduce you to a concept and approach, there will be more information on Alloy and integrating persistence solutions in the future.
