ChunkEMail ANE

ChunkEMail is an AIR Native Extension designed to use the Android email composer to send emails. You could do this with a mailto: link in a navigateToURL call, but there are character limits for doing things that way. If you want to prepopulate with a big chunk of email, this ANE aims to help you do it.

This extension is Android only (with desktop simulator support). There is no intention of supporting iOS. Instead try


  • ChunkEMailLib Flex Library project that contains the AS3 API for the ANE.
  • ChunkEMailDefault Flex Library project. Default implementation of API that should allow this ANE to work on desktop simulators. Should, but doesn't at the moment
  • ChunkEMailANE Android project in Java used to generate the jar for the ANE
  • ChunkEMailTest Flex Project. Sample implementation project.

Build the ANE

To build the ANE,

  1. go to the build directory in console
  2. put in the following command: adt -package -target ane ChunkEMail.ane extension.xml -swc ChunkEMailLib.swc -platform Android-ARM -C android . -platform default -C default .
  3. copy the ChunkEMail.ane into the libs folder of ChunkEmailTest

This assumes you have adt installed. If you don't, follow the instructions in this tutorial, which is how I got my start: Part 5 of that article tells how to structure your build files for the ANE.
