This is a tutorial to create a new Client for libpruple.

There is an implementation of a testclient in the project im.pidgin.libpurple.testclient

== Create a new Project ==

Create a new Android project with a name of your choice.

== Get the libs ==

You have 2 Ways of getting libpurple:

=== Source (takes some time) ===

Check out the android branch and build it. See [wiki:GSoC2012/Android/compiling compiling help].

Then copy the file ''build.ant'' from the testclient project to your project and adapt it to your project name.

=== Compiled binaries ===

TBD: A .tar.gz with all .so-Files and with a jar file for the java classes.

== Set android properties ==

Go to the project properties of your new project.

Select the Android entry. Add im.pidgin.libpurple project to the list of libraries.

Select Java Build path. In the tab Projects, add im.pidgin.libpurple. In the tab Order and Export, check that project.

== Go ==
You are ready to use libpurple. Call PurpleInstance.createInstance() to get a reference to libpurple.
