README.md

These scripts will (hopefully) help you build static libraries for tf2 for android and setup a sample application.

You will need android SDK installed and the 'android' program location in the $PATH.

INSTALL

Source ROS (for python tools):

source /opt/ros/hydro/setup.bash

The do_everything.sh script will call all the other scripts sequentially, you just have to give it a prefix path:

./do_everything.sh /path/to/workspace

YOU WILL PROBABLY HAVE TO RUN THIS MULTIPLE TIMES DUE TO PTHREAD LINKING.

You can also run each script individually, most of them have a minimalistic help string to give you an idea of their parameters.

When finished, the script will give you a few lines of what it did. If everything went fine, you will be able to do the following:

cd /path/to/workspace/sample_app
ant debug

This will build the app. If you want to install it, run the following:

ant debug install

This will install the app onto a virtual android device running in the emulator.

To follow what the app does, you will need to read the log. The sdk has a tool called adb located in $SDK/platform-tools/, you can follow the log by running:

$SDK/platform-tools/adb logcat

Good luck!
