Golang 1.4 beta on Android
currently only working on linux (use a vm if are on macos)
Discounted! As from official go 1.4, use native functions.
- Download and install NDK -> From go.mobile:
Pick a home for the standalone NDK toolchain and set an environment variable: NDK_ROOT=$HOME/android/ndk-toolchain
Configure the NDK toolchain:
ndk/build/tools/make-standalone-toolchain.sh --platform=android-9 --install-dir=$NDK_ROOT
Get the Golang 1.4 beta, go to into src dir and type:
CC_FOR_TARGET=$NDK_CC GOOS=android GOARCH=arm GOARM=7 ./make.bash
At some point, you should see gcc erros about 'gcc: error: unrecognized command line option -marm'
go get github.com/MarinX/godroid
Folder android_so_lib, contains makefile to build your .so lib (I already included this is AndroidStudio project, so you can check it and run)
You can import the android_studio project and explore/modify/run (support for android 2.3>=).
When you are done, don't forget to uncomment or remove the PATH you set, to use your standard gcc.
