# Hyperloop Requirements
You’ll need to have the following installed on your machine as the recommended requirements to use Hyperloop 5.0.0+:
Appcelerator Studio: 5.0.0+
Titanium SDK: 9.0.0+
Appcelerator CLI: 7.0.0+
# Optional Dependencies
These dependencies are used only if you plan to integrate hyperloop with them. You do not need Alloy or Cocoapods to use Hyperloop, but may use Hyperloop in an Alloy app - or consume 3rd-party libraries on iOS using Cocoapods.
CocoaPods (opens new window) 1.0.0+ (see note)
Note: If you plan on using CocoaPods as a third-party dependencies manager, you will need to have (at a minimum) CocoaPods 1.0.0 or later installed. See Using third-party libraries with CocoaPods for details on how to install and set up your project.

To download and install Appcelerator Studio:
Expand the Appcelerator menu and click on the App Builder (opens new window) link.
