SoLoader is a native code loader for Android. It takes care of unpacking your native libraries and recursively loads dependencies on Android API 23 and earlier, since those old OS versions do not support all of that functionality out of box.


SoLoader is useful for applications running on Android API 23 and earlier. SoLoader should not be used on Android API 24 and above unless the app is delivered as Exopackage, requires Android Native Library Merging or uses Superpack compression.

Including SoLoader in your apps

You can use prebuilt aars or fetch SoLoader from Maven repository by adding the following to your build.gradle file:

implementation 'com.facebook.soloader:soloader:0.10.5+'

Building from source

To build SoLoader from source you'll need Buck. Once you have Buck installed execute following commands from the project root directory:

  buck fetch //...
  buck build :soloader

The build command generates buck-out/gen/soloader.aar file.
