Working With Androidplot Source

Working With Androidplot Source

We try to keep these pages as up to date as possible, but typos are inevitable, especially immediately following new releases. If you spot an error, please let us know either in the forums or shoot an email to Thanks!


Androidplot’s main repo is hosted by Bitbucket.  If you’ve got a git client installed, you can get the latest copy of the Androidplot source by cloning using this command:

git clone

We also maintain a Github clone:

git clone

You can also download an archive of all sources by going to the Androidplot Bitbucket Downloads page, clicking “Branches”  and downloading a copy of the “master” branch in whichever archive format you prefer.


As of version 0.9.3, Androidplot is exclusively a Gradle project, which makes building incredibly easy.  The project uses the excellent sdk-manager-plugin so you don’t even need to setup the Android SDK.  You’ll still need to have Java JDK 1.7 or later installed.

To perform a full build (runs tests, generates javadocs, builds the library and demo app):

./gradlew clean test assemble

Pull Requests

Pull requests may be issued against either the Bitbucket or Github repos – we’ll take care of keeping them in sync.
