Project Wiki:
    DroidBox APIMonitor script(currently beta).

    usage: [-h] [-o, --output dirpath] [-a, --api apilist] [-v, --version] filename

    Repackage apk to monitor arbitrary APIs.

    positional arguments:
      filename              path of APK file

    optional arguments:
      -h, --help            show this help message and exit

      -a, --api apilist     config file of API list
      -v, --version         show program's version number and exit

    A light weight module to play with apk to develop in the future. Currently we use androguard/

    Parse smali files of APKs to tree based structure. 

    Inject monitor code to smali tree.

    Derive inheritence relationship of Android API from android.jar
    Call apkil/ to build and store API database.
    Permissions from which may be used in the future.
