To make it run on your Android device you need to have Andoird 2.3 or higher, and of course your device should have a camera.


obsqr uses zbar library to decode QR images. Zbar mirror is added as a subrepo so it's fetched automatically. Zbar sources are added to the jni directory as symlinks.

Update project accodring to your SDK version:

$ android update project -p . -t <your-target>

Edit local.properties by specifying path to the NDK:


Finally, run ant to build obsqr:

$ gradle build

After this step, you should get several *.apk files inside the bin directory.

Supported architectures are ARM, ARMv7, MIPS and x86, also there is a "fat" APK for all architectures.
