I've put up the latest native and cross-compiler ldc 1.1.0
beta builds for Android, fresh from the master branch and
using the 2.071 frontend:
I believe I've fixed the issue that was causing random crashes
in the sample apps, a regression from porting the NDK's C
wrapper to D, found by Vadim Lopatim. I've added three sample
apps that demonstrate calling D code from JNI.
The sample C++ Teapot app from the NDK has been ported to D
and mostly works, including calling Java methods from D
through JNI, but I need to track down some other touch-related
bugs from the port before committing it. I'm finishing up
reggae files to make building the sample apps very easy. I'd
like to write up the process to build and use ldc natively on
your Android mobile device, from the Termux app, on the wiki.
Once those three are done, I'll create a new thread to
properly announce this beta; in the meantime, nothing will
change with these new beta builds, so try them out.
Piping hot builds of the upcoming ldc 1.1.1 release available
as both a linux/x64 -> Android/ARM cross-compiler and a native
Android/ARM compiler, that you can run on your own phone or
I finally spent some time tracking down that touch bug in the
sample Teapot app, think I know where it's coming from now,
just need to fix it.
Based on the recent 1.2 release of ldc, new builds for Android
Notice how small the patches for ldc are, now that kinke added
support for cross-compiling reals to lower-precision platforms,
basically just a few additions to the CMake script to
cross-compile the standard library left. Only a single assert
from the stdlib tests trips, a longtime codegen issue in
std.random that became visible now, and the entire compiler
I'll update the wiki, upload my remaining patches, post upstream
PRs, and finally clean up and put out that sample Teapot app,
which shows using JNI to call Java functions from your D app,
