Orchid Android: Build and Installation


Update Android Studio

Check installed Android SDK versions:

Preferences-> System Settings -> Android SDK

(Compare with your phone Android version: Phone settings -> About Phone -> About Software)

Install Android NDK

Within Android Studio, navigate to Preferences -> Appearance & Behavior -> System Settings -> Android SDK

On the SDK Tools tab check the boxes next to:

  • LLDB
  • NDK (Side by Side)
  • CMake

Then click Apply and OK in the confirmation dialog to install the required components.


cd app-android
export ANDROID_NDK_HOME=~/Library/Android/sdk/ndk/<your version>

This will produce out-and/Orchid.apk


Turn on developer and debugging mode on the phone:

Navigate to Settings -> About Phone -> About Software and tap on the build number repeatedly until it prompts you to enable developer mode.

Then go to Settings -> Developer Settings -> Turn on USB Debugging.

adb devices # list devices
adb install out-and/Orchid.apk

Install tclsh from Homebrew with:

brew install tcl-tk
export PATH="/usr/local/opt/tcl-tk/bin:$PATH
You can’t perform that action at this time.
