Hi, I just wrote my first tutorial and its about setting up LDC
for Android compilation.
It is mostly based off the Build LDC for Android Wiki page but
I have written it so it is easier to understand for beginners.
I followed the Wiki page and for example had some problems
because I used an x86 emulator instead of arm. Also the adb
connect commands were a bit weird. So I wrote all commands how
they worked for me and how its the simplest to setup.
Also I included a bit more to encourage the user to play around
with the code and ensure it works.
Any feedback would be appreciated as this is the first tutorial
I have ever written.
(I just setup that website so its still pretty blank)
Nice, just the sort of docs D needs, especially since I've never
used the emulator and have always avoided the SDK GUI.
I just updated the ldc for Andoid wiki page with some newer
instructions, which should change your post a little. In
particular, you don't have to specify the llvm target triple
anymore: the latest 1.1.0 builds assume you're cross-compiling
Also, the dmd for Android wiki page is outdated, as it notes at
the top. However, it has some more detail on the build process,
so if you linked it for that, no big deal.
Only skimmed your post, I'll read it in more detail and may have
more feedback later. Thanks for writing it up. :)
