Vulkan API samples

Demonstrates basic usages of Vulkan APIs.


The project includes series of samples demonstrating a basic usage of Vulkan APIs. This repository is a replication of LunarG sample kit, refer to wiki for more background.

Getting Started

Refer to the Getting Started guide.




Sample Import

To import the samples, follow the steps below:

Step 1: Build shaderc in the NDK

From the command-prompt, navigate to the ${ndk_root}/sources/third_party/shaderc directory. Then, run the following command:

../../../ndk-build NDK_PROJECT_PATH=. APP_STL:=[c++_static|c++_shared] APP_ABI=[armeabi-v7a|arm64-v8a|x86|x86_64|all] libshaderc_combined -j16

For this project, the APP_STL value is set to use the c++_static, as all of the project samples are using it.

Step 2: Import the samples into Android Studio

You can use one of the following methods to install this project in Android Studio:

  • Import Android Code Sample: Choose Import an Android code sample, then search for and select Vulkan API samples. Android Studio downloads the sample code directly from Github.
  • Import Project: Use this method only if you've already cloned this project from GitHub into a local repo. From Android Studio, choose Open an existing Android Studio project and select the build.gradle file located at the root of your local repo directory.

The samples are configured to build armeabi-v7a; to build other android ARCH, change abiFilters in $your-project/build.gradle.

Note: This project includes 40+ samples and may take time to load on some platforms, such as Windows OS.


If you've found an error in this sample, please file an issue:<...>/issues
