BlockLauncher: a custom Minecraft launcher for Android

Build Status


BlockLauncher's build system is complicated and out of date. It still uses Ant (and thus is incompatible with Android Studio), and uses older versions of various libraries.

Scripts to setup a build environment can be found in tools/ci/

This script is tested to work on GitHub Actions' Ubuntu 18.04 image, and on a fresh Ubuntu 19.10 install.

You may need to install:

sudo apt install git p7zip-full openjdk-8-jdk ant
sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-1.8.0-openjdk-amd64
