Android Nougat Easter Egg (a.k.a. "Android Neko")
I wanted to keep playing this game on Android O, so lifted the source from AOSP, cleaned it up a bit, fixed some things, put it in a Bazel workspace, and published it on Google Play Store.
How to install
Get it from the Google Play Store at
AndroidNougatEasterEgg.apk and sideload it. It's exactly
the same as the version published on Play Store.
How to keep your cats
There is experimental support for teleporting cats from the Android system
easter egg app to this one in
teleport_cats. It has only been tested on
Debian-based Linux distributions but hopefully works on Mac OS X and Cygwin
It requires a Java runtime, Android SDK platform tools (really just ADB), and Android Backup Extractor JAR available at https://sourceforge.net/projects/adbextractor/.
How to build
This project uses Bazel to build. You'll need to get Bazel setup first but then it's really easy to build.
- Android SDK 24, build tools 27.0.3, and Android Support Library need to be in your local Android SDK installation.
- This project is configured to look for your Android SDK installation at
/opt/android-sdkbut it's easy enough to change that to wherever you like. Just modify the one reference in
- Go to
bazel build :AndroidNougatEasterEgg.
How to hack
You could just edit with your text editor of choice and use Bazel directly from the command line...
...but also it's pretty straightforward to import this Bazel project into
Android Studio. Just install the Bazel plugin for Android Studio, use the
"Import Bazel Project" option, point to
workspace for the workspace,
workspace/.bazelproject, and create a project directory here called
AndroidNougatEasterEgg (already in .gitignore) to use.
Some of the support library things don't seem to show up in Android Studio, probably because they are in AAR files and that isn't supported yet, but all the rest of refactoring, organizing imports, linting, etc. works.
