Hello all, I’ve got a project that I’d like to bring to Android, but the current supported NDK r15c is unsupported by android and unsupported by modern libraries (e.g. gstreamer). I realize Android dev can be a headache, but I’m hoping to find a path forward.
I’m trying to get a sense of what it would take to bring the Android build up to date. I’ve discovered that it’s not as simple as just recompiling our 3rd party libs and changing the local.properties to an updated
ndk.dir, but will require a re-design / update of the gradle files and migration from the
com.android.tools.build:gradle-experimental:0.9.3 setup to something more modern. (Incremental updates to com.android.tools.build:gradle-experimental:0.11.1 and Gradle 4.1 aren’t sufficient, by the way). It appears there are paths forward using cmake, but that would require some larger OF build updates. I’m open to taking on some of this work if it is well-defined, but I’m not able to reach an expert level on the modern Android build system in the time I have.
@arturo @theo @zach (or anyone) Can you offer any thoughts on the future of OF on Android support? Or, perhaps know of someone who is actively working on Android w/ OF? If we abandon OF for this project, do you all have any ideas for OF-like platforms on Android? Thanks.
