Cocos2d-x v3.17 and Firebase C++ SDK

Cocos2d-x v3.17 and Firebase C++ SDK

#1

Hi folks.

I was trying to build my project for Android. I built up my IOS project completely. The documentation was enough to get build it. But I have problems;

One of my files are includes an header file from Firebase C++ SDK.

Error message is:
~/Library/Android/sdk/ndk-bundle/toolchains/llvm/prebuilt/darwin-x86_64/lib/gcc/i686-linux-android/4.9.x/…/…/…/…/i686-linux-android/bin/ld: error: cannot find -lfirebase_feature_sk


And my other libraries.

I just follow the guide here: https://firebase.google.com/docs/admob/cpp/cocos2d-x

CMakeLists.txt;

#2

You could try with sdkbox firebase:
http://docs.sdkbox.com/en/plugins/firebase/v3-cpp/


#3

I don’t want to use SDK Box, due to understand under-layer of my system.

I think, the problem is my make files. I read a lot about make files. But still, this is my first day about it and I couldn’t get it work.

My android studio says O.K. but while compiling, the header file includes are missing.


#4

@tranthor, I have updated my question. Here is the thing, now.

Can you tell me, is it so obvious, or is there a nuance ?


#5

Sorry, i use sdkbox for everything
Maybe other user can help you…


#6

@slackmoehrle, can you help me, please ?


#7

@R101, this is my problem.
If you can help me, I will be grateful.


#8

@scknkkrer I don’t understand why you pasted Android.mk? Ignore that file, since you shouldn’t be using it. You should be building using CMake.

If you’re using v3.17 of Cocos2d-x, then you really need to update to 3.17.1. Do that first, then follow the instructions.

In your/proj.android/gradle.properties file, you should have this:

PROP_BUILD_TYPE=cmake

Make sure your /proj.android/app/gradle.build is updated to reflect what is in the Cocos2d-x 3.17.1 release. If you’re not sure, paste the entire contents of that file in here so we can see.

Have you checked to see if the firebase_feature_sk actually exists?

What architectures are you building for? Paste the entire contents of your /proj.android/gradle.properties file.

EDIT:
I think I know what is going on. You may already be creating your builds with CMake, so your Android.mk file isn’t actually being used, meaning your 3 firebase libraries are not being created. The problem is that you didn’t add the relevant section of code in CMake to create your 3 libraries:

firebase_app_sk
firebase_feature_sk
firebase_analytics_sk

Try this:

# Make sure this path is correct, so check it yourself and adjust if needed
set(FIREBASE_CPP_SDK_DIR  ${CMAKE_CURRENT_SOURCE_DIR}/firebase_cpp_sdk)

# Not entirely sure if 'c++' is the correct STL to use, but the other options in the folder are gnustl and stlport
set(FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH $(FIREBASE_CPP_SDK_DIR)/libs/android/$(ANDROID_ABI)/c++)

add_library(firebase_app_sk STATIC IMPORTED)
set_target_properties(firebase_app_sk PROPERTIES IMPORTED_LOCATION ${FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH}/libfirebase_app.a)

add_library(firebase_feature_sk STATIC IMPORTED)
set_target_properties(firebase_feature_sk PROPERTIES IMPORTED_LOCATION ${FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH}/libfirebase_admob.a)

add_library(firebase_analytics_sk STATIC IMPORTED)
set_target_properties(firebase_analytics_sk PROPERTIES IMPORTED_LOCATION ${FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH}/libfirebase_analytics.a)

I’m not sure if you need the “IMPORTED” target property, but you can try it out I guess. More info here Imported Libraries

Also, you could just link directly to the app:

target_link_libraries(${APP_NAME} ${FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH}/libfirebase_app.a)
target_link_libraries(${APP_NAME} ${FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH}/libfirebase_admob.a)
target_link_libraries(${APP_NAME} ${FIREBASE_LIBRARY_PATH}/libfirebase_analytics.a)

Thank you so much.
I can solve my link problem with monkey-patching: -l…/dir/to/lib.a and link target call with it.

I’ll follow your instructions, and let you know about my status.

Thank you again.


#10

I firstly check my cocos-cli version with

cocos -v
>cocos2d-x-3.17.1
>Cocos Console 2.3

My second intent is to apply your solutions to my project. I simply create a new project template with cocos-cli. After that, I migrate my source and header files, resources. Integrate Firebase Android integration instructing in this: [https://firebase.google.com/docs/admob/cpp/cocos2d-x](http://Firebase Cocos2d-x Integration)

I hope, this post and @R101’s answers help anyone who suffer like me.


#11

@R101, my problem is still available for release version of my project.
Can you show me an example with no code, no implementation, just header includes and linking binaries.

PS: my code works with specific android-level and abi. But It doesn’t show the ad. It crashes.


#12

I don’t understand what you mean by that. Do you mean that it works if you build debug? There should be no difference between the two.

Once again, I don’t understand what it is you’re asking for. If you mean CMake related items, then I don’t know how to help more than I already have, and I’ve already pointed you in the right direction. I highly doubt your issues are specific to Cocos2d-x, so search online for more info on CMake, and read the available documentation on the CMake website.

That’s not something I can help you with. I’ve never used Firebase, so if you’re getting no ads and crashes, that’s something you really should be figuring out yourself. You can’t be the only person who’s having these issues, so do a net search to find more info, or go through the Firebase docs more thoroughly.
