Gradle Project Setup

In order to package an Android .aar archive we use the rust-android-gradle. Except some customisations for the latest NDK toolchain release everything worked flawlessly.

JNI

There is no way right now to automatically generate JNI stubs for Rust. A manual example is available in the android crate of maplibre-rs.

Single NativeActivity

Right now winit only allows the usage of a NativeActivity. This means the application needs to run in fullscreen. This native activity is referenced in the ┬┤AndroidManifest.xml` by defining the name of the shared library. Tracking Issue
