A tool for writing Android applications in Mirah.
$ jruby -S gem install pindah
$ pindah hello.world hello_world [HelloActivity] $ cd hello_world && tree [TODO: project skeleton listing] $ jruby -S rake -T rake clean # Removes output files created by other targets rake compile # Compile Mirah source to JVM bytecode rake dex # Translate JVM bytecode to Dalvik bytecode rake install # Install the application on a device or emulator rake logcat # Tail logs from a device or a device or emulator rake package # Create an .apk file for the application rake release # Create a signed .apk for distribution rake resources # Prepare resources rake spec # Print the project spec
If Mirah is just too low-level and you need something more dynamic, you can try Ruboto, though be warned there is a very significant overhead it brings with it from JRuby's runtime.
