How to build pjsip based CsipSimple Dialer for Android on Mac (Step By Step)

This is the blog post for the developer who were struck in developing or wish to develop “pjsip based CsipSimple Dialer for Android“. As there was no proper guidance for developing the project at once place, I want to share our experiences in a form of Step by Step. Read more…

Since it is not a good idea to choose windows platform to build  pjsip based CsipSimple, we preferred Macintosh.

You need to install pjsip based CsipSimple Dialer for Android. I recommend you to update macports using “sudo port selfupdate” command.

The project requires some dependencies to be installed before compiling csipsimple. Install following dependencies one by one or all at a time.

#sudo port install quilt

#sudo port install gsed

#sudo port install subversion

#sudo port install unzip

#sudo port install wget

#sudo port install python

#sudo port install make

#sudo port install yams

#sudo port install  swig-java

#sudo port install svn

.Install swig2.0 and create a symbolic link

#sudo port install swig

#sudo ln -s <path_to_swig> /opt/local/bin/swig2.0


Confirm the swig version with “swig2.0 -version “ or “swig –version” command

The next step is preparing android development environment on mac .

Downlaod ADT bundle which comes with eclispse and SDK

Install Adt Bundle . Download from here

Extract it to somewhere in a directory  on your home directory or desktop and name it something like Development

Download android NDK and extract  it to Same directory ( ofcourse you can keep it anywhere but must define path later )

Add the environment paths for these directories so that console can  execute

Run these from terminal directly or edit ~/ .profile and  add it to that

#export ANDROID_NDK=/—PATH TO NDK directoty—

#export ANDROID_SDK=——PATH TO adt-bundle/sdk—

#export PATH=$PATH:$ANDROID_SDK/tools:$ANDROID_SDK/platform-tools:$ANDROID_NDK


It’s time to check out cisipsimple  source code as well as ActionBarSherlock

#svn checkout CSipSimple

#svn checkout ActionBarSherlock


Go into csipsimple directoy and build native libraries

# cd CsipSimple


additionally you can make video libraries and codecpack if you want

make g729 optionally

# make CodecG729Screen Shot 2013-11-29 at 11.35.12 PM


The only issue we faced while building is SILK codec certificate error. We added –no-check-certificate  before wget   in MAKE script.

sources/SILK_SDK_SRC_ARM_$(silk_version) :

@wget $(silk_repo) –no-check-certificate; \


After successfully build native libraries, you can  open ecilipse and right click choose import existing android project.

Select SipHome  and  ActionBarSherlock as build projects .


Now right click on SipHome and make sure SDK  version exist in our  android SDK library .


And add  ActionBarSherlock in SipHome Properties- Java Buidl Path àProjects
