Overview

The LineageOS platform SDK is a powerful resource that allows app developers to do more with LineageOS devices.

It is available on all the devices running LineageOS 15.1 (or later). It’s also possible to use the SDK with devices running an unofficial LineageOS build, but we can’t assure the same quality level of an official build.

Adding to your Android Studio project

You can download the LineageSDK jar library from our prebuilts repo. Once you have downloaded the jar file, insert in the module-level build.gradle of your app this dependency:

dependencies {
    implementation fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['lineageos-sdk.jar'])
}

And put the lineageos-sdk.jar file in your app’s module libs folder (usually app/libs) and refresh the gradle dependencies.

Compiling the library from source

In order to compile this library from source, you need to set up a LineageOS build environment.

Once your build environment is ready, run the following commands to generate the .jar library:

source build/envsetup.sh
breakfast yourDevice    # Replace yourDevice with your device's codename
croot
make org.lineageos.platform.sdk.aar

The jar library will be available at the following path:

out/target/common/obj/JAVA_LIBRARIES/org.lineageos.platform.sdk.aar_intermediates/classes.jar

Compatibility

The library has been tested on both java and kotlin projects.
