Legato on Android


#1

Hi everyone,

I’m in the process of learning the legato framework and wanted to know how I would go about developing an android application. Do I code it in C and then legato will port it over to android or do I really need to code an android app in java?

Any help / tips would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dallas

Hiya,

An app developed using the Legato toolchain on a (Ubuntu) host requires to be Legato framework to be installed on the target - WP8548 (mangOH/FX30) or RasPi are currently supported targets.

So unless you port the Legato Framework to Android, then you can’t use the Legato tools on the host to build for Android.

So you’re probably going to have to code your android app in your favourite tools that are available for android.

ciao, Dave
