NOTE: Rajawali's release process is changing and the master branch should be considered unstable. Use the v0.9 tag if you need a stable version. We are working to improve documentation on this subject.

The RajawaliExamples project is an ever growing toolkit for developing 3D content. Check it out!

Made With Rajawali

Numerous apps and live wallpapers have been made with Rajawali. Check them out!

Using Rajawali

Using Rajawali is as simple as adding a single line to your gradle dependencies:

compile 'org.rajawali3d:rajawali:x.x.x@aar where x.x.x is the version number (and the last number is the build number). If you wish to use the master branch snapshot, append -SNAPSHOT. For example, to use release 1.0.48, you would use:

compile 'org.rajawali3d:rajawali:1.0.48@aar

To use the master branch build 48 snapshot 1.0.48-SNAPSHOT, you would use:

compile 'org.rajawali3d:rajawali:1.0.48-SNAPSHOT@aar

All commits to master branch or deployed as snapshots. All tags will be deployed as releases. To see the latest build number, see the build history and be sure you choose a master branch build.

For the above to work you will need to make sure your repository list includes:

mavenCentral() for releases, and maven { url "" } for snapshots.

Alternatively, if you checkout Rajawali via GIT, you can run gradle assembleRelease uploadArchives (or simply add a Gralde launch config to Android Studio for the assembleRelease and uploadArchives tasks). This will deploy to your local maven ropository. Consuming apps should have mavenLocal() in their repository list and add compile 'org.rajawali3d:rajawali:1.0.0-SNAPSHOT@aar to their dependencies.
