I wanted to check if anyone has written a self contained app for Android in Julia? I know there were some threads a few years back. Wanted to ask again now that time has passed. I am thinking of trying it but hopefully someone has gone down the path before.
I don’t think that this is possible. There is ongoing work to make self-contained GUI snap packages on Linux possible, but even that is not yet working…
This is something which is worth a try just to know what are the obstacles of doing that. The steps involved from my point of view:
- Get a bare Julia to run in ADB shell
- Check if GLFW.jl library can draw on Android screen. Debug, link to get that working.
- Investigate the bundle structure, perhaps special kind of launcher and etc. Try to get that to work.
For the latter AppBundler.jl can help with collecting all dependencies together by modifying a snap recipe.
