Android JS

Android JS framework lets you write android applications using JavaScript, HTML and CSS. It is based on Node.js. It allows you to write fully featured android application in node js and provide you environment to use any npm package in your android app (i.e. SocketIO, fs, etc..)

Installation

To install Android JS binaries, use npm.

npm install androidjs

Install Android JS project generator and builder

npm install -g androidjs-builder

Getting started

mkdir myfirstapp
cd myfirstapp
androidjs g
npm install

it will generate a sample project inside myfirstapp

 myfirstapp
    |__ assets
    |       |__ ipc, css, js
    |
    |__ views
    |       |__ index.html
    |
    |__ main.js
    |__ package.json
  • main.js is the main file or we can say it is back process of your app which execute all the code written in node, so you have to write all the node js code inside main.js
  • index.html is the first view which is render by app initially
  • package.json to keep track of all your node packages
  • assets to store all assets of your app

Build your app

cd myfirstapp
androidjs b

it will generate apk file inside dist folder

if this build command fails or generated any error, try to build with force command

androidjs b -f

Quick start

git clone https://github.com/android-js/sample-app
cd chat-app
npm install
androidjs b -f

it will generate an apk inside dist folder.
