C+Makefile for Android

Raw Draw Android — Build android apps without any java, entirely in C and Make

Ever wanted to write C code and run it on Android? Sick of multi-megabyte packages just to do the most basic of things. Well, this is a demo of how to make your own APKs and build, install and automatically run them in about 2 seconds, and with an apk size of about 25kB.

With this framework you get a demo which has:

  • To make a window with OpenGL ES support
  • Accelerometer/gyro input, multi-touch
  • An android keyboard for key input
  • Ability to store asset files in your APK and read them with AAssetManager
  • Permissions support for using things like sound. Example in https://github.com/cnlohr/cnfa
  • Directly access USB devices. Example in https://github.com/cnlohr/androidusbtest

Comment policy

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation.

Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
