Short Description
Docker images for checking out AOSP branches and building external code inside the source tree.
Full Description


Docker images for Android modules or apps that really need to be built inside the AOSP source tree. This allows you to access all private APIs in both Java and C++ land. Doing that is usually a massive pain, and definitely not recommended for any application. Even with these helper images, it's not exactly a walk in the park. Furthermore, by using private APIs you risk your module or app crashing on random devices.

So go away now unless you know what you're doing.


  • Create local AOSP mirrors
  • Checkout AOSP branches or tags (from your local mirror or directly)
  • Build your own modules inside any checked out AOSP branches
  • Supports JDK6 (with openstf/aosp:jdk6)
  • Supports JDK7 (with openstf/aosp:jdk7)
  • Supports JDK8 (with openstf/aosp:jdk8)

Available as openstf/aosp in the Docker Hub Registry.


  • docker
  • Vast amounts of disk space. A local mirror currently takes roughly 60GB, and each checked out branch roughly 20-30GB after building your module and its deps.
  • Knowledge of AOSP.


You might want to checkout the helper script's usage first.

docker run -ti --rm openstf/aosp:jdk7 / help

Please see here for a usage example from an actual module.
