You can install a test runner app or run a command-line binary.  
Please report your results in this thread in the ldc forum, which 
requires no registration, with the info and format requested 
there, particularly for Android 4.1 or earlier:

https://forum.dlang.org/thread/bafrkjfwmoyriyhmqizl forum.dlang.org

If you try out the native compiler, take a look at the README 
that comes with it for instructions.

If you have a D/OpenGL app you'd like to port to Android and 
submit to the Play Store, let me know if I can help with that 
process.

I'm going to port DlangUI on Android in nearest future.

Thanks, I wondered if it had been posted, as it's the kind of oddity they might enjoy. :) On Wednesday, 27 January 2016 at 07:01:30 UTC, Vadim Lopatin wrote:

Cannot build ldc for Android according to instructions http://wiki.dlang.org/Build_LDC_for_Android git clone --recursive https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc.git cd ldc/ git submodule update curl -O https://gist.githubusercontent.com/joakim- noah/63693ead3aa62216e1d9/raw/b89d77d66a80206b4dd3d78bb10d83a7e368f3d4/ldc_android_arm git apply ldc_android_arm Patch cannot be applied to current ~master I've tried to checkout several recent tagged versions - doesn't work too. Probably it's applicable only to some particular LDC version. What version of ldc should I checkout to apply this patch? (Building LDC on Windows)
It's not hard to figure out, as 'git apply ldc_android_arm' says it fails on dmd2/root/port.c and 'git log dmd2/root/port.c' shows this recent change to master: https://github.com/ldc-developers/ldc/commit/556e3a691f72b97cce31d85740e8dc12cafc9f53#diff-2268700876655bdfa9d178b9cc466277 I've updated the gist and wiki page to take that change into account; simply download the new gist, as shown on a reloaded wiki page. Also, I haven't tried cross-compiling from Windows, so you may run into other problems there. The main one I can think of is that the test runner targets I added to CMake may have an issue, but there could be additional incompatibilities that I simply haven't run into on linux. Hopefully, it just works. :) Anyway, this is a good reason to get all this stuff merged soon, which is what I was looking into now anyway, although that particular change is from Kai's long-unmerged longdouble2 branch.

Thank you! I've sent pull request to fix GLES2 build errors, and to create dub.json Could you please register your project on code.dlang.org as DUB package? I'm going to use it as a dependency in DlangUI

Thanks, shows that I've only tested with OpenGL ES 1.0 so far. I was going to try porting one of the NDK sample apps that uses 2.0 next, shouldn't be an issue.

I had a dub.json written up locally, but simply never bothered to commit and register it. I'll do so now.
