Provides support for building native Android libraries. More...

Since: Qbs 1.4


Detailed Description

The Android.ndk module contains the properties and rules to create native libraries for use in Android applications.

Normally, you will not use this module directly, but instead work with the DynamicLibrary, StaticLibrary and Application items that Qbs provides.

Here is what the project file for the hello-jni example that comes with the NDK could look like:

CppApplication {
    name: "HelloJni"
    Android.sdk.packageName: "com.example.hellojni"
    qbs.architectures: ["arm", "x86"]
    files: "app/src/main/jni/hello-jni.c"

Relevant File Tags

"android.nativelibrary"1.4.0Attached to dynamic libraries that will end up in APK packages. You do not normally need to use the tag explicitly, as it is the default type of the DynamicLibrary item for Android targets.
