aSmack - buildsystem for Smack on Android

This repository doesn't contain much code, it's a build environment!

This repository contains a source fetching, patching and building script. As well as all the minor changes to make an Android version fly. See the patches/ folder for a detailed list of changes and scripts.

Compiled JARs

Make sure to read the README for every release! Or else aSmack won't work for you. 95% of the problems people experiencing with aSmack come from the fact that they didn't read the README.

The JARs can be found @

The best way to get support is IRC: Join #smack @ freenode. But keep in mind that this is IRC, it may take a while till you get an answer. Up to a few days. So make sure to idle around. :)

Apps that use this fork of aSmack


If possible, please base patches on smack, not on aSmack. You can use the 'upstream' branch from smack @ github. Only in some cases the 'master' branch should be used.

If your code follows Smack's contributor guidelines, is good documented and comes with some testcases, then it's possible to commit it upstream. Simply join #smack @ freenode and ask for a code review.


We do not keep a seperate CONTRIBUTORS file, and we discourage @author tags. However you're free to add your full name to every git commit, and we will preserver this. Let us know if you've helped on non-technical stuff and we'll find a way to give you the deserved credit.
