Make it possible to develop android apps on Pinebook [Feature]
#1
Please, make it possible to conveniently develop Android apps on Pinebook.
As far as I know currently Android Studio won't run on a pinebook.

Thank you,
Ilya.

This request isn't really the responsibility of the Pine team or the community developers. Compiling the SDK is something you can do yourself, though I'm not sure if it's something you'd really want to do on the Pinebook.

If you're using a Debian variant, such as the default KDE Neon, check out these links:

I don't know very much about the process of developing Android apps on arm but I know that for developing them on an Intel machine one needs VTx.

If you you are aware that PineBook's CPU is enough to run a compiled SDK --, please, let us know.

This link might also be helpful (someone has uploaded their patches/builds of Android build tools for use on arm/arm64): https://github.com/thejunkjon/android-tools

As far as how it handles compiling, other can hopefully shed some light on that. In Manjaro, I've only compiled the 5.2 kernel, which of course took a while, but was done within a few hours. I can't speak toward the performance handling Android apps, but I'm sure it wouldn't be terrible.

Are android application more interesting than what we have in desktop linux ?
Maybe for the game. (I dont know)
but what else ?

By the way, is it really that hard to port the android-java engine ? Why is that so ?

Cheers, kaylios.

In this thread we discuss developing of Android apps, not using them, though I agree that for testing you need to run android apps on a PineBook.

If you want to get some information about running Android apps on PineBook, then I think you will attract more attention if you create a new post with a corresponding title.

Dang, I grossly misunderstood the original intention/request of this post. Sorry, kaylios.

To run Android apps for testing, here's the ARM64 repo of Anbox. But it only supports Ubuntu 16.04 and 18.04. It requires an OS with Snap support, so if snapd is available, you should be able to use it.
