Android SDK Documentation from Google


This package will download the Android SDK Documentation from Google and create a Debian package. This package also aims to strip out all calls to the networking, including tracking services like Google Analytics and Doubleclick. These documentation files still require the Google "jsapi", which is only available by fetching it each time from This package forces it to use https://, but otherwise, these docs have to phone home in order for any of the javascript to work.

WARNING: Installing this Debian package causes to be downloaded from and/or from other suggested mirrors. Also, since Google is often blocked in China, the install process will try again on Chinese mirrors if the Google central download repo is not available. Since the zipball is checked against the embedded SHA1 checksum, the install will fail if the mirror contains a corrupted version.

The End User License Agreement of this binary package is available here:

The code in the documentation is licensed under the Apache 2.0, and the content is licensed under Creative Commons CC-BY 2.5. The CC-BY 2.5 license is non-free but can be legally distributed by Debian. This package avoids the issue all together since each user directly downloads the files from Google, and must agree to Google's license.
