Erlang for the Android platform
– Now for the Android plattform
I have completed my port of Erlang (both R14 and R13B03) for the Android platform. In order to use EShell the phone needs to be rooted.
1 Dec – epmd now works.
22 Nov – I am working on a solution so that the device does not need to be rooted in order to get access to EShell
17 Nov – You can now find the Android package on Erlang Solutions package page: http://www.erlang-solutions.com/section/72/packages
- Download the Erlang installer for the Android OS (Dowload it here: Erlang R14 for Android (4449))
- Go to market with your phone and install ”Fast Installer”
- Put the Erlang installer on your SD-card
- Open ”Fast installer” and choose to install the Erlang-package (Note: you need to disconnect your phone from the computer for this)
- After step 4 is done, open ”Erlang installer”
- Choose the R14-package and press the ”Install”-button (This will take about 3-10 minutes)
- Wait for the install-button to switch to ”Already installed”
- Erlang is now installed.
Open a terminal program on your android device and type:
$ cd /data/data/org.burbas.erlang/arm_erlang_R14B_rel/bin $ su # chmod 777 erl # /system/bin/sh erl Eshell V5.8.1 (abort with ^G) 1>
