OpenCV Java project for Android

The OpenCV library for Android as Gradle project.

All credit goes to http://opencv.org/ I've took their library and exported it as .aar library. Now you can easily use OpenCV in a Gradle / Android Studio project.

Usage Maven Repo

I've uploaded the .aar in my maven repository. You only need to add following lines to your build.gradle to add the dependency:

repositories {
    maven {
        url 'https://raw.github.com/vRallev/mvn-repo/master/'

dependencies {
    compile 'org.opencv:opencv-android:2.4.8'

Compiling the library

You can also clone the library and add it your local maven repository.

  1. Clone the repository.
  2. In the root project folder (opencv-library) run gradle uploadArchives.
  3. Add the same dependency as above:
repositories {

dependencies {
    compile 'org.opencv:opencv-android:2.4.8'
