First, extract your SDK zip file to your projects directory. Ideally, this folder will be accessible by your HTTP server. For example, you should be able to navigate to http://localhost/sencha-touch-2.0.0-gpl from your web browser and see the Sencha Touch documentation.
You’ll also need to run the SDK Tools installer. The SDK Tools will add the
sencha command line tool to your path so that you can generate a fresh application template among other things. To check you have installed the SDK tools, change to your Sencha Touch directory and type the
senchacommand. For example:
$ cd ~/webroot/sencha-touch-2.0.0-gpl/ $ sencha Sencha Command v2.0.0 for Sencha Touch 2 Copyright (c) 2012 Sencha Inc. ...
Note: You must be inside either the downloaded SDK directory or a generated Touch app when using the
Generating your first app
Make sure you’re still in the Sencha Touch SDK folder, and type the following:
sencha -sdk /path/to/sdk generate app MyApp /path/to/MyApp
$ sencha generate app GS ../GS [INFO] Created file /Users/nickpoulden/Projects/sencha/GS/.senchasdk [INFO] Created file /Users/nickpoulden/Projects/sencha/GS/index.html [INFO] Created file /Users/nickpoulden/Projects/sencha/GS/app.js ...
It will create new project at ../GS and also create all its hierechy.
