v8 @ ffc84ec

This is where we store the patches and revision of the v8 repository that we use in the Android port of Titanium Mobile. Build Status

To build V8, you'll need:

  • Android NDK r16b

Build V8 for Android against the NDK:

$ ./ -n /path/to/android-ndk


$ export ANDROID_NDK=/path/to/android-ndk
$ ./

To publish V8 to S3, you'll need s3cmd:

The Whole Shebang

# Apply our patches to v8
cd v8
git apply ndk16b_6.6.patch
cd ..

# Install Android NDK
export ANDROID_NDK=${PWD}/android-ndk-r16b

# Download s3cmd
tar -xzf s3cmd-1.6.0.tar.gz
export PATH=${PWD}/s3cmd-1.6.0

# Configure s3cmd
s3cmd --configure

# build v8 for ARM, ARM64, and then x86
./ -n /path/to/android-ndk-r16b -j16 -l arm
./ -n /path/to/android-ndk-r16b -j16 -l arm64
./ -n /path/to/android-ndk-r16b -j16 -l ia32

# Generate a tarball to publish
./ -t

# Publish
./ build/release/libv8-

Full usage:

$ ./ -h
Usage: ./ options

This script builds v8 against the Android NDK.
	-h              Show this help message and exit
	-n <ndk_dir>    The path to the Android NDK. Alternatively, you may set the ANDROID_NDK environment variable
	-s <sdk_dir>    The path to the Android SDK. Alternatively, you may set the ANDROID_SDK environment variable
	-j <num-cpus>   The number of processors to use in building (passed on to scons)
	-m <mode>       The v8 build mode (release, debug. default: release)
	-t              Build a thirdparty tarball for uploading

Note: This build is designed to work on a 32-bit Linux. If you wish to install it on a 64-bit version, you would need to install 32-bit libraries:

sudo apt-get -y install gcc-multilib g++-multilib
