This application requires Android Studio. In any case, before opening the
project with Android Studio, make sure you download the dependencies using
Makefile. Before you can do this, you should install the
GPG key with which binaries are signed. Binaries are digitally signed by
Simone Basso using a PGP key with ID
7733D95B and fingerprint
7388 77AA 6C82 9F26 A431 C5F4 80B6 9127 7733 D95B) or by Lorenzo Primiterra using a PGP key with ID
1191 0C85 CD8C D493 8DFA 17F7 AA09 A57A ECEB 9D12). You can fetch this
key using gpg using the following command:
gpg --recv-keys 7733D95B ECEB9D12
After this step, you can proceed with automatically downloading binaries and verifying their digital signatures using this command:
If the signature is correct, the above command will install the JNI
libaries inside the
src/main/ folder. Specifically, the following paths
are affected by that command:
app/src/main/jniLibs: added with Measurement Kit jniLibs compiled for several Android architectures inside it
app/src/main/java/org/openobservatory/measurement_kit/jni/: added with Java files corresponding to the jniLibs
All the added files should be recognized by Android Studio.
