MMKV for Android

MMKV is an efficient, samll, easy-to-use mobile key-value storage framework used in the WeChat application. It's currently available on iOS and Android.

Getting Started


  • API level 16 and above are supported.
  • NDK r16b and below (should you choose to build MMKV from source)


  • Via Maven

    1. Add the following lines to build.gradle on your app module:

      dependencies {
          implementation 'com.tencent:mmkv:1.0.10'
          // replace "1.0.10" with any available version

      This will cause Gradle to download AAR package while building your application.

  • Via Prebuilt AAR Package

    1. Download AAR package from release page;

    2. Import the AAR as new module. In Android Studio, select File -> New -> New Module... menu and choose "Import JAR/AAR Package";

    3. Add a dependency on the new module. This can be done using File -> Project Structure... in Android Studio, or by adding following code to application's build.gradle:

      dependencies {
          implementation project(':mmkv')
  • Build from Source

    1. Getting source code from git repository:

      git clone
      cd mmkv
    2. Install Android NDK r16b. If Gradle failed to find your SDK and/or NDK, you may need to create a file named on the Android/MMKV/ directory with content:


      note: Starting from NDK r17, ARMv5 (armeabi) is not supported. You can use the latest NDK if your app doesn't need to support that architecture, by deleting this line in Android/MMKV/mmkv/build.gradle:

      abiFilters 'armeabi', 'armeabi-v7a', 'arm64-v8a', 'x86', 'x86_64'
    3. Open Android/MMKV project in Android Studio and start building, or you can do it in terminal:

      cd Android/MMKV
      ./gradlew build
