Alloy Logo

At the recent tiConf US, Tony Lukasavage mentioned that I built an alloy.jmk file so that you can use Jade with Alloy. That is the blog post to get you started. He admitted that he never used Jade and only knew about conditionals. Hearing that I thought it was high time for a post on the real benefits of using Jade with Alloy.

Tony, this one's for you.

TiShadow

A new feature of TiShadow is the tishadow appify command. It allows you to build a stand-alone application that runs on TiShadow. To the user it looks like an ordinary application. When the app launches it automatically connects to a preconfigured TiShadow server so you can push updates and run any of the other commands (repl, spec, etc). In short it provides you with a different way of controlling and managing your test builds.

Alloy Logo

By now readers are already pretty familiar with Alloy and TiShadow. Recently there has been a bit of a discussion about how to test Alloy apps. Aaron Saunder shared a slideshare that runs through testing Alloy apps using behave.js. It is a worthwhile read.

What people might not know is that you can already use TiShadow not only to quickly deploy Alloy apps, but run Jasmine specs simply and without writing a test harness or any modifications to your Alloy app.
