A Mock API for SL4A's Python Android API
This project provides an API to mimic the Python API provided by the Scripting Language for Android project. The SL4A Android API can only be run on an actual Android device, which can make development cumbersome. This project provides an API very similar to the one on Android, but it is designed for use on a desktop operating system such as Linux, OSX, and Windows.
The SL4A Android API is very large and allows you to interact with almost every part of the Android operating system. For each of these features I have to find a similar desktop feature and hook into it. Sometimes there is nothing similar available. Because of this, this project will likely never be able to emulate every piece of the API.
I am building this project as I come across SL4A Python API features that I need to use. At the present time, I am not attempting to simulate the entire API. If you need a feature that hasn't yet been implemented, please fork this project, code it up, and make a pull request. Your contributions will be welcomed.
From your SL4A project's virtualenv: pip install sl4a_pydroid_api
This creates an android module which you can import just like a regular SL4A project.
Further Instructions for Text To Speech (ttsSpeak)
On OSX, it uses the built-in 'say' program. No other action is necessary. If for some strange reason 'say' is missing, you can also install and use espeak.
On Windows, you can install and use espeak.
If no TTS program can be found, it will default to printing the message to the console.
*Release date: 4-Oct-2012
- Added espeak support to ttsSpeak for OSX, Linux, and Windows
*Release date: 4-Oct-2012
- Refactor of ttsSpeak due to no longer using PyTTSx
- Added a Makefile for repetative tasks
*Release date: 22-Jul-2012
- Added code supplied by clach04:
- Made pyttsx optional with a nosound fallback (echoes to output)
- Added docstrings for all Android methods from androidhelper project
Release date: 16-Jul-2012
- Added support for makeToast via a Tkinter window.
- Added a shim module for TTS on OSX since I couldn't get PyTTSx working outside of the OSX system Python.
Release date: 15-Jun-2012
- This initial release of the project includes a working implementation of the ttsSpeak method using PyTTSx. It also includes partial implementations of the ttsIsSpeaking and recognizeSpeech functions. See the SIMULATED_FUNCTIONS.TXT file for more details.
