The Qt 5 for Android project is based on Necessitas, the port of Qt 4 to Android. This is an overview page to organize the development of the port.

The Qt 5 for Android is already released in Qt 5 and instructions on how to obtain the necessary packages as well as view documentation and run examples, visit the Qt 5 documentation page Qt 5 Documentation


Qt 5 for Android consists of several parts:

1. A platform plugin in $QTDIR/src/plugins/platforms/android
2. Java code which is built into a distributable .jar file containing binding code in $QTDIR/src/android/jar
3. Java code which is used as a template for new projects by the Qt Creator plugin in $QTDIR/src/android/java
4. A mkspec in $QTDIR/mkspecs/android-g++
5. Some build files in $QTDIR/android
6. A plugin to Qt Creator which generates the necessary Java wrapper, manifests, build instructions, etc to develop and deploy on Android. This is in $QTCREATOR/src/plugins/android.


If you have questions or suggestions to anyone working on this project, the easiest would be contact us on IRC. We are on #necessitas on the Freenode IRC servers.

We also have the project mailing list: http://lists.qt-project.org/mailman/listinfo/android-development


The project is currently in the regular Qt repositories in codereview.qt.io. Clone the repositories and check out the "dev" branch to try it out.
