Multi-OS Engine


Multi-OS Engine provides a Java runtime and Java interfaces to iOS platform API to develop native iOS applications with native look and feel, native performance, and portability of common Java logic modules from your Android Apps. It comes fully integrated with Android Studio hosted on macOS or Windows and contains all the development tools needed to develop an iOS app and publish to the App Store.

Getting Started

Building from Source Code


  • Apple macOS 10.11
  • Minimum 8GB RAM

Install the 'repo' Tool

mkdir ~/bin
curl https://storage.googleapis.com/git-repo-downloads/repo > ~/bin/repo
chmod a+x ~/bin/repo

You may also install the repo using brew:

brew install repo

Get the Source Code

Mainline branch:

repo init -u https://github.com/multi-os-engine/manifest.git
repo sync

Note: if you want to get the source code from development branch with initial support of Windows and bitcode, switch to "moe-windows-bitcode" branch:

repo init -u https://github.com/multi-os-engine/manifest.git -b moe-windows-bitcode
repo sync

Installing Homebrew & Dependencies

Install brew from brew.sh, then you can install MOE's dependencies:

brew tap homebrew/versions
brew install autogen autoconf automake libtool pkg-config wget gcc@5 cloog cmake jasmin gpg ant maven

cd <repo>/moe/moe-core
brew install file://`pwd`/dependencies/premake5.rb
brew install file://`pwd`/dependencies/[email protected]

Building MinGW & LLVM

Note: On MacOS Mojave the header files are not installed automatically. To install them, execute the following commands:

sudo rm -rf /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools # We remove the previously installed command line tools to make sure we have the latest one
xcode-select --install   # Install the latest one
open /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/Packages/macOS_SDK_headers_for_macOS_10.14.pkg # Install the headers
sudo xcode-select --reset # To make sure that the default toolchain path points to Xcode (required by xcodebuild)

Building the complete SDK and related tools requires LLVM and MinGW. To build these execute the following:

cd <repo>/prebuilts
./gradlew mingw llvm

This step only needs to be done once (or until MinGW or LLVM components/requirements are changed).

Building Multi-OS Engine Core

The moe/moe-core repo contains the runtime (and some compile time) components of MOE. To build the frameworks and build tools, execute the following:

cd <repo>/moe/moe-core
./gradlew build

Building Multi-OS Engine Tools

The moe/tools repositories contain the tools required to build and run MOE applications.
