Handles autotools mayhem for Android development

Project Description

A solution to the nastiness that is building autotools-based projects for Android using the NDK.


pip install android-autotools

If using Linux: you will need to install patchelf to work around an issue where the SONAME value is set incorrectly using the NDK with a Linux host. Building on other host systems does not require this dependency.

A wrapper around autotools for Android.

  config      build from supplied JSON build file

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit
  --version   show program's version number and exit
  -v          verbose output

build options:
  -a arch     override architectures in provided build file
  -o dir      output directory for build (default: cwd)
