NDK Samples build

This repository contains Android NDK samples with Android Studio C++ integration.

These samples use the new CMake Android plugin with C++ support.

Samples could also be built with other build systems:

  • for ndk-build with Android Studio, refer to directory other-builds/ndkbuild
  • for gradle-experimental plugin, refer to directory other-builds/experimental. Note that gradle-experimental does not work with unified headers yet: use NDK version up to r15 and Android Studio up to version 2.3. When starting new project, please use CMake or ndk-build plugin.
