A .NET client for adb, the Android Debug Bridge (SharpAdbClient)

SharpAdbClient is a .NET library that allows .NET applications to communicate with Android devices. It provides a .NET implementation of the

adb
protocol, giving more flexibility to the developer than launching an
adb.exe
process and parsing the console output.

Installation

To install SharpAdbClient install the SharpAdbClient NuGetPackage. If you're using Visual Studio, you can run the following command in the Package Manager Console:

PM> Install-Package SharpAdbClient

Getting Started

All of the adb functionality is exposed through the

SharpAdbClient.AdbClient
class. You can create your own instance of that class, or just use the instance we provide for you at
SharpAdbClient.AdbClient.Instance
.

This class provides various methods that allow you to interact with Android devices.

Starting the
adb
server

SharpAdbClient does not communicate directly with your Android devices, but uses the

adb.exe
server process as an intermediate. Before you can connect to your Android device, you must first start the
adb.exe
server.

You can do so by either running

adb.exe
yourself (it comes as a part of the ADK, the Android Development Kit), or you can use the
AdbServer.StartServer
method like this:
AdbServer server = new AdbServer();
var result = server.StartServer(@"C:\Program Files (x86)\android-sdk\platform-tools\adb.exe", restartServerIfNewer: false);

List all Android devices currently connected

To list all Android devices that are connected to your PC, you can use the following code:

var devices = AdbClient.Instance.GetDevices();

foreach(var device in devices) { Console.WriteLine(device.Name); }

Subscribe for events when devices connect/disconnect

To receive notifications when devices connect to or disconnect from your PC, you can use the

DeviceMonitor
class:
void Test()
{
    var monitor = new DeviceMonitor(new AdbSocket(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Loopback, AdbClient.AdbServerPort)));
    monitor.DeviceConnected += this.OnDeviceConnected;
    monitor.Start();
}

void OnDeviceConnected(object sender, DeviceDataEventArgs e) { Console.WriteLine($"The device {e.Device.Name} has connected to this PC"); }

Manage applications

To install or uninstall applications, you can use the

PackageManager
class:
void InstallApplication()
{
    var device = AdbClient.Instance.GetDevices().First();
    PackageManager manager = new PackageManager(device);
    manager.InstallPackage(@"C:\Users\me\Documents\mypackage.apk", reinstall: false);
}

Send or receive files

To send files to or receive files from your Android device, you can use the

SyncService
class. When uploading a file, you need to specify the permissions of the file. These are standard Unix file permissions. For example,
444
will give everyone read permissions and
666
will give everyone write permissions. You also need to specify the date at which the file was last modified. A good default there is
DateTime.Now
.
void DownloadFile()
{
    var device = AdbClient.Instance.GetDevices().First();

using (SyncService service = new SyncService(new AdbSocket(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Loopback, AdbClient.AdbServerPort)), device))
using (Stream stream = File.OpenWrite(@"C:\MyFile.txt"))
{
    service.Pull("/data/local/tmp/MyFile.txt", stream, null, CancellationToken.None);
}

}

void UploadFile() { var device = AdbClient.Instance.GetDevices().First();

using (SyncService service = new SyncService(new AdbSocket(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Loopback, AdbClient.AdbServerPort)), device))
using (Stream stream = File.OpenRead(@"C:\MyFile.txt"))
{
    service.Push(stream, "/data/local/tmp/MyFile.txt", 444, DateTime.Now, null, CancellationToken.None);
}

}

Run shell commands

To run shell commands on an Android device, you can use the

AdbClient.Instance.ExecuteRemoteCommand
method.

You need to pass a

DeviceData
object which specifies the device on which you want to run your command. You can get a
DeviceData
object by calling
AdbClient.Instance.GetDevices()
, which will run one
DeviceData
object for each device Android connected to your PC.

You'll also need to pass an

IOutputReceiver
object. Output receivers are classes that receive and parse the data the device sends back. In this example, we'll use the standard
ConsoleOutputReceiver
, which reads all console output and allows you to retrieve it as a single string. You can also use other output receivers or create your own.
void EchoTest()
{
    var device = AdbClient.Instance.GetDevices().First();
    var receiver = new ConsoleOutputReceiver();

AdbClient.Instance.ExecuteRemoteCommand("echo Hello, World", device, receiver);

Console.WriteLine("The device responded:");
Console.WriteLine(receiver.ToString());

}
