Realm is a mobile database that runs directly inside phones, tablets or wearables.

This repository holds adapters for combining Realm Java with Android UI components and framework classes.

Currently supported UI components are:

Getting Started

This library only works together with Realm Java. Please see the detailed instructions in our docs to add Realm to your project.

To add the adapters to your project, add the following to you app's dependencies:

repositories {

dependencies {
    compile 'io.realm:android-adapters:3.1.0'

This library is only compatible with Realm Java 3.0.0 and above.


Documentation for Realm can be found at The API reference is located at

Using Snapshots

If you want to test recent bugfixes or features that have not been packaged in an official release yet, you can use a -SNAPSHOT release of the current development version of Realm via Gradle, available on OJO

repositories {
    maven {
        url ''

dependencies {
    compile 'io.realm:android-adapters:<version>'

See version.txt for the latest version number.

Building Realm Android Adapters

In case you don't want to use the pre-compiled version, you can build the library from source.


  • Download/the JDK 7 or JDK 8 from Oracle and install it.
  • Download & install the Android SDK, Android 7.1 (API 25) (for example through Android Studio’s Android SDK Manager)

Once you have completed all the pre-requisites building Realm is done with a simple command

./gradlew assemble

That command will generate:

  • an aar file for the adapter library in adapters/build/outputs/aar/android-adapters-release.aar

Other Commands

  • ./gradlew monkeyDebug will run the monkey tests on the example project.
  • ./gradlew javadoc will create the javadoc for the library.
  • ./gradlew artifactoryPublish will upload a SNAPSHOT to OJO.
  • ./gradlew bintrayUpload will upload a release to Bintray.
