Gradle fails on set up

Post by zylesea » Mon Jun 11, 2018 11:26 pm

Finally I moved from apk compiler 1.x to 2.3.
The first apk compiling fails with a gradle error though.

"ABIs [Armeabi] are not supported fot platform."

"der Befehl gradlew ist entweder falsch geschrieben oder konnte nicht gefunden werden"

See attached screen shot:

Host is a Windows7 system.

Looks like Google removed support for Armeabi from the Android SDK. I'll need to adapt APK Compiler for that.

Andreas,I think you already know, but new issues by google on the horizon: from August on new apps must meet API 26 criteria (IIRC, currently the apk compiler meets API 14), updates must fullfill API 26 from November on. A kind of debatable* market force "friss oder stirb" policy...

https://developer.android.com/distribut ... target-sdk

* IMHO a warning that an app does meet only older sdk target requirements would be enough, but enforcing the API fullfillment of a certain level is a bit to restrictive IMHO albeit (part of) the intention may be of good reasons (higher security/privacy).

That's no problem because Hollywood's Android backend is currently getting an almost complete rewrite and should be much easier to maintain because more things will be done on the Java side. The current Android backend was mainly written for Android 2.3 and uses NativeActivity as its basis, which, although still supported, is a somewhat dead end road but who could've known that when I wrote the backend 6 years ago? The new backend should make it easier to adapt to changes in the SDK although frequent APK Compiler updates will probably still be necessary because Google changes things all the time here.

The original issue is fixed now by Hollywood APK Compiler 2.4:

Code: Select all

- Change: Dropped support for armeabi architecture because the Android SDK doesn't support it any longer
Download available from the restricted download area.

How's progress going? No pressure (really not, I am more than impressed by your productive output), just a rough estimate.

Mostly finished, expect some massive improvements on Android in the next Hollywood version. RapaGUI on Android is definitely a game changer!
