Boat - Helper library for Android




Boat provides an environment to run some interesting programs on Android. It evolves from zhuowei's Boarwalk. Initilaly, Boat is just for playing Minecraft Java Edition on Android. Currently, we still test Boat with Minecraft JE. However, Boat is NOT a Minecraft launcher. Please have a look on Related Projects.


It is very simple to build the aar package. NOTE,only support aarch64。32bit arm has been abandoned and is never tested.

export ANDROID_SDK_ROOT=Your Android SDK path

./gradlew assembleDebug
