Generic Python packager for Android / iOS and Desktop

Project description

Buildozer

Build Coverage Status Backers on Open Collective Sponsors on Open Collective

Buildozer is a tool for creating application packages easily.

The goal is to have one "buildozer.spec" file in your app directory, describing your application requirements and settings such as title, icon, included modules etc. Buildozer will use that spec to create a package for Android, iOS, Windows, OSX and/or Linux.

Buildozer currently supports packaging for Android via the python-for-android project, and for iOS via the kivy-ios project. iOS and OSX are still under work.

For Android, buildozer will automatically download and prepare the build dependencies. For more information, see Android-SDK-NDK-Information. Note that only Python 3 is supported.

Note that this tool has nothing to do with the eponymous online build service buildozer.io.

Installing Buildozer with target Python 3 (default):

  • Install buildozer:

    # via pip (latest stable, recommended)
    # if you use a virtualenv, don't use the `--user` option
    pip install --user buildozer
    
    # latest dev version
    # if you use a virtualenv, don't use the `--user` option
    pip install --user https://github.com/kivy/buildozer/archive/master.zip
    
    # git clone, for working on buildozer
    git clone https://github.com/kivy/buildozer
    cd buildozer
    python setup.py build
    pip install -e .
    
  • Check buildozer is in your path

    `which buildozer`
    # if there is no result, and you installed with --user, add this line at the end of your `~/.bashrc` file.
    export PATH=~/.local/bin/:$PATH
    # and then run
    . ~/.bashrc
    
  • Go into your application directory and run:

    buildozer init
    # edit the buildozer.spec, then
    buildozer android debug deploy run
    

Buildozer Docker image

A Dockerfile is available to use buildozer through a Docker environment.

  • Build with:

    docker build --tag=buildozer .
    
  • Run with:

    docker run --volume "$(pwd)":/home/user/hostcwd buildozer --version
    

Examples of Buildozer commands

# buildozer target command
buildozer android clean
buildozer android update
buildozer android deploy
buildozer android debug
buildozer android release

# or all in one (compile in debug, deploy on device)
buildozer android debug deploy

# set the default command if nothing set
buildozer setdefault android debug deploy run

Usage

Usage:
    buildozer [--profile <name>] [--verbose] [target] <command>...
    buildozer --version

Available targets:
    android        Android target, based on python-for-android project
    ios            iOS target, based on kivy-ios project

Global commands (without target):
    distclean          Clean the whole Buildozer environment
    help               Show the Buildozer help
    init               Create an initial buildozer.spec in the current directory
    serve              Serve the bin directory via SimpleHTTPServer
    setdefault         Set the default command to run when no arguments are given
    version            Show the Buildozer version

Target commands:
    clean      Clean the target environment
    update     Update the target dependencies
    debug      Build the application in debug mode
    release    Build the application in release mode
    deploy     Deploy the application on the device
    run        Run the application on the device
    serve      Serve the bin directory via SimpleHTTPServer

Target "ios" commands:
    list_identities    List the available identities to use for signing.
    xcode              Open the xcode project.

Target "android" commands:
    adb                Run adb from the Android SDK. Args must come after --, or
                        use --alias to make an alias
    logcat             Show the log from the device
    p4a                Run p4a commands. Args must come after --, or use --alias
                        to make an alias

buildozer.spec

See buildozer/default.spec for an up-to-date spec file.

Default config

You can override the value of any buildozer.spec config token by setting an appropriate environment variable. These are all of the form $SECTION_TOKEN, where SECTION is the config file section and TOKEN is the config token to override. Dots are replaced by underscores.

For example, here are some config tokens from the [app] section of the config, along with the environment variables that would override them.

  • title -> $APP_TITLE
  • package.name -> $APP_PACKAGE_NAME
  • p4a.source_dir -> $APP_P4A_SOURCE_DIR
