Appcelerator adds Titanium backend with Cocoafish buy

I like backends and I cannot lie

Providing a secure and efficient Helpdesk

Mobile platform developer Appcelerator has completed its second purchase of the last year, snapping up Cocoafish to gets its APIs and server backend system.

The company bought HTML5 expertise with the Particle Cloud buy last year, and this buy was also part of a hunt for specific technology, CEO Jeff Haynie told The Register. Haynie said that Cocoafish’s backend server support for mobile applications for those using Objective-C, Java, PhoneGap, Sencha and HTML5 was what attracted Appcelerator.

He said Appcelerator is still on the prowl for new acquisitions. “We’re going to continue to be pretty active in this area, while growing organically as well,” he said. “In Silicon Valley there’s a lot of great product companies with great teams where attaching to someone like us makes sense.”

But the deal’s not all about the backend. Cocoafish has 17 JavaScript APIs for functions like storage, identification, and social media that can be integrated into Appcelerator’s Titanium Studio system – as well as iOS, Android, REST and JavaScript SDKs for non-Titanium customers.

The first products from the union will come out in March, Haynie said.

The two teams have been working together for three week. Load scaling testing on the cloud is being performed this weekend and API code should be complete by next week. ®
