Default vsandroid: Integrated development of Android NDK C/C++ software under Visual Studio


I've just released an open-source tool which allows compilation of NDK-based apps under Visual Studio.

Here's a list of features:
  • Compile and link Android C/C++ projects within Visual Studio.
  • Integrated development, no makefiles. Works as another 'Platform' type.
  • Android settings co-exist within the same VS projects as other platforms.
  • Supports static library projects, and links them in if marked as project dependencies.
  • Intellisense and 'External Dependencies' correctly pull in Android NDK headers.
  • Cygwin install is not required.
  • Around twice as fast as using ndk-build under Cygwin. For full rebuilds, and incremental changes.
  • Ctrl-F7: compile single file functions, has no dependency checking wait.
  • Supports invoking ant after linking, such that you end up with a packaged ready-to-deploy .apk file.

Download it here:

Hope it's useful to some of you. Feedback, comments, bug-reports welcome!
