p2panda node in Android app

⚠️ This is an experimental setup to see if we can bring the p2panda aquadoggo node into an native Android app! And yes, it works! Give me some time to clean this up and write more documentation.

Please note: This was tested with a smartphone with ARM64 architecture.


  • Rust
  • Android NDK
  • Android SDK


# Setup
cargo install cargo-apk

# Build native `.so` library
cargo apk build --release

# Copy library to Android project
cp ./target/release/apk/lib/arm64-v8a/libaquadoggo_android.so ../android/Doggodroid/app/src/main/jniLibs/arm64-v8a

# Open the Android project `Doggodroid` in Android Studio and run it from there ..!
