[Solved]Build Urho and my app for android step by step

I want try to understand how to build step by step Urho3D and my app for android platform on Windows. I download Android NDK, ant and all paths is writed to system.

  1. download sdk, ndk, ant and install jdk
  2. enviroment
    set JAVA_HOME=“c:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51” <- or your version
    set ANDROID_NDK=\android-ndk
    set ANDROID_SDK=\android-sdk-windows
    set PATH=%PATH%;\android-sdk-windows\tools
    set PATH=%PATH%;\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools
    set PATH=%PATH%;\android-sdk-windows\build-tools
    set PATH=%PATH%;\android-ndk\prebuilt\windows\bin
    set PATH=%PATH%;\apache-ant-1.9.3\bin <- or your version

in Urho3D folder run cmake_android.bat -DURHO3D_MKLINK=1 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
3)
go to folder "android-Build"
3.5)
android update project -p . -t 1 (only needed on the first time, replace ‘-t 1’ with desired target-id (“android list targets” for list targets))
4)
make (or make -j4)
5)
ant release
6)
install Urho3D.apk

Between steps 4 and 5, you might need:

You can see which targets you have with:

I’m manually copy all files to android-Build folder and run cmake_android.bat

Output:

Thanks, missed.

There may be several compiler in path and cmake does not know what to choose

For first step I user CMake GUI:

I suggest you to retry again from scratch or at the very least perform a cmake_clean.bat first. Your last screenshot of cmake-gui already indicates to me that something is not quite right. How did the MinGW toolchain got into the picture? :slight_smile:

Yes. I select MinGW make files as compiler type.

I’m add check to see if ANDROID checkbox checked:

Corrected Generator type selected - MinGW

But it always use Win32 (also after I check ANDROID checkbox and press Configure again)

No, you got it all wrong. Our CMake Android build does not work that way. To my understanding, CMake configures the compiler toolchain only once in the initial configuration step. No matter how many times you click on the Configure button in the GUI (or by running the CMake again in CLI to do reconfiguration), it will never be successful in changing the chosen compiler again that will be used for the project. For Android build, you will for sure required to use the Android toolchain provided by the NDK. The CMake generator can be “Unix Makefiles” or “Eclipse CDT 4 - Unix Makefiles” or even others, but the compiler must be set to use the one provided by Android NDK and never be MinGW compiler. To use the Android toolchain correctly, you must call cmake_android.bat on a clean build tree (just delete the old build tree if you are unsure). If you must use cmake-gui then make sure at the initial configuration step, you remember to choose the option “Specify toolchain file for cross-compiling” and select the android.toolchain.cmake in the next dialog window. Good luck.

Thanks, I select F:/Urho3D/Source/CMake/Toolchains/android.toolchain.cmake. But error.

Getting closer. I see from the error that you are already using Android NDK r10d. You must use a matching android.toolchain.cmake file to use that bleeding edge version. We have just upgraded our toolchain file a few days ago in the master branch (commit 8b496896f2762d8313fcaab184c67daa7ac004ca). So, you must either git pull your master branch and use that master branch to do Android build OR copy that single file into whatever version you are currently using OR downgrade to NDK r10c. Note that Urho3D 1.32 release only supports up to Android NDK r10c.
