This is the CCNx Distillery software distribution for Android. It is in charge of pulling together all the necessary modules to build a full CCNx software suite for Android.



Install tools to build libcurl

If Ubuntu:

$ sudo apt-get install p7zip-full build-essential automake libconfig9 libtool lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 unzip \
      default-jdk libx11-xcb-dev libfontconfig1 libgl1-mesa-dev cmake

If Max Os X

$ brew install automake libconfig libtool

Quick Start

Clone this distro

$ git clone -b android-sdk/master android-sdk
$ cd android-sdk

Export Android Sdk path

$ export SDK_PATH=/Users/angelomantellini/Library/Android/sdk

Export Android Ndk path

$ export SDK_PATH=/Users/angelomantellini/Library/Android/sdk/ndk-bundle

Export Android Android CMAKE path

$ export SDK_PATH=/Users/angelomantellini/Library/Android/sdk/cmake/3.6.3155560/bin

If the previous variables are not set, Sdk, Ndk and CMake for android will be downloaded

Compile everything (dependencies and CCNx modules)

$ make all

The CCNx software will be installed in androidSdk/usr

To compile Metis for android app (ccnxandroidmetis)

$ make android_metis

To install the application

$ adb install -r MetisForwarder/app/build/outputs/apk/metis-forwarder-armeabi-v7a-release.apk

To compile IGet for android app (ccnxandroidmetis)
