...oh yeah, Studio will do it for you automatically. :)
Alloy includes many sample and test apps in the sample/apps folder (see above). For example, basics/simple. You can run these in a few different ways:
Beginning with Alloy 1.6, you can do the following:
# first, create a Titanium Classic project titanium create --name yourAppName cd yourAppName # then, convert it to an Alloy project, using the test app as a template alloy new . --testapp basics/simple
# first, clone the repo git clone https://github.com/appcelerator/alloy.git cd alloy # install jake globally [sudo] npm install -g jake # install alloy globally from the cloned repo [sudo] npm install -g . # install alloy's local testing dependencies npm install # run a test app jake app:run dir=basics/simple
You can use these apps through Titanium Studio too. The easiest way to do that would be to import the test/project/Harness into Titanium Studio. After that, everytime you run
jake, your project in Studio will be updated. Once in Studio, you can run for any platform, Titanium SDK version, or change any settings you want. This will give you a lot more options and power than running solely from the command line.

C:\Users\tony\alloy), as you can get all kinds of non-obvious permissions failures from the child processing Alloy does. Your safest bet is to just

npm test, you do so on a non-Windows OS to ensure there's no red herring failures until the aforementioned node.js issue is resolved.

More so than any other Appcelerator project to this point, we are working collaboratively with the community to develop a framework that works for you. Here's the best ways to discuss Alloy or ask questions.
Other than that, all the usual rules for submitting feedback apply. The more code, details, and test cases you provide, the easier it will be to act on that feedback.
Alloy is an open source project. Alloy wouldn't be where it is now without contributions by the community. Please consider forking Alloy to improve, enhance or fix issues. If you feel like the community will benefit from your fork, please open a pull request.
To protect the interests of the Alloy contributors, Appcelerator, customers and end users we require contributors to sign a Contributors License Agreement (CLA) before we pull the changes into the main repository. Our CLA is simple and straightforward - it requires that the contributions you make to any Appcelerator open source project are properly licensed and that you have the legal authority to make those changes. This helps us significantly reduce future legal risk for everyone involved. It is easy, helps everyone, takes only a few minutes, and only needs to be completed once.
You can digitally sign the CLA online. Please indicate your email address in your first pull request so that we can make sure that will locate your CLA. Once you've submitted it, you no longer need to send one for subsequent submissions.
