DESCRIPTION

       The Android Asset Packaging Tool (aapt) takes your application resource files, such as the
       AndroidManifest.xml file and the XML files for your  Activities,  and  compiles  them.  An
       R.java is also produced so you can reference your resources from your Java code.

OPTIONS

       A summary of options is included below.

       -a     print Android-specific data (resources, manifest) when listing

       -c     specify  which  configurations to include.  The default is all configurations.  The
              value of the parameter should be a comma separated list  of  configuration  values.
              Locales  should  be  specified  as either a language or language-region pair.  Some
              examples:
                          en
                          port,en
                          port,land,en_US

              If  you  put  the  special  locale,  zz_ZZ   on   the   list,   it   will   perform
              pseudolocalization  on  the default locale, modifying all of the strings so you can
              look for strings that missed the internationalization process.  For example:
                          port,land,zz_ZZ

       -d     one or more device assets to include, separated by commas

       -f     force overwrite of existing files

       -g     specify a pixel tolerance to force images to grayscale, default 0

       -j     specify a jar or zip file containing classes to include

       -k     junk path of file(s) added

       -m     make package directories under location specified by -J

       -u     update existing packages (add new, replace older, remove deleted files)

       -v     verbose output

       -x     create extending (non-application) resource IDs

       -z     require localization of resource attributes marked with localization="suggested"

       -A     additional directory in which to find raw asset files

       -G     A file to output proguard options into.

       -F     specify the apk file to output

       -I     add an existing package to base include set

       -J     specify where to output R.java resource constant definitions

       -M     specify full path to AndroidManifest.xml to include in zip

       -P     specify where to output public resource definitions

       -S     directory in which to find resources.  Multiple directories will be scanned and the
              first match found (left to right) will take precedence.

       -0     specifies  an  additional  extension  for  which  such  files  will  not  be stored
              compressed in the .apk.  An empty string means to not compress any files at all.

       --debug-mode
              inserts android:debuggable="true" in to  the  application  node  of  the  manifest,
              making the application debuggable even on production devices.

       --min-sdk-version
              inserts  android:minSdkVersion  in to manifest.  If the version is 7 or higher, the
              default encoding for resources will be in UTF-8.

       --target-sdk-version
              inserts android:targetSdkVersion in to manifest.

       --max-res-version
              ignores versioned resource directories above the given value.

       --values
              when used with "dump resources" also includes resource values.

       --version-code
              inserts android:versionCode in to manifest.

       --version-name
              inserts android:versionName in to manifest.

       --custom-package
              generates R.java into a different package.

       --extra-packages
              generate R.java for libraries. Separate libraries with ':'.

       --generate-dependencies
              generate dependency files in the same directories for R.java and resource package

       --auto-add-overlay
              Automatically add resources that are only in overlays.

       --preferred-configurations
              Like the -c option for filtering out unneeded configurations, but only expresses  a
              preference.   If  there  is  no resource available with the preferred configuration
              then it will not be stripped.

       --rename-manifest-package
              Rewrite the manifest so that its package name  is  the  package  name  given  here.
              Relative  class names (for example .Foo) will be changed to absolute names with the
              old package so that the code does not need to change.

       --rename-instrumentation-target-package
              Rewrite the manifest so that all of its instrumentation components target the given
              package.   Useful  when  used  in conjunction with --rename-manifest-package to fix
              tests against a package that has been renamed.

       --product
              Specifies which variant to choose for strings that have product variants

       --utf16
              changes default encoding for resources to UTF-16.  Only useful when  API  level  is
              set to 7 or higher where the default encoding is UTF-8.

       --non-constant-id
              Make  the  resources ID non constant. This is required to make an R java class that
              does not contain the final value but is used to make  reusable  compiled  libraries
              that need to access resources.

       --error-on-failed-insert
              Forces  aapt to return an error if it fails to insert values into the manifest with
              --debug-mode, --min-sdk-version, --target-sdk-version --version-code and --version-
              name.  Insertion typically fails if the manifest already defines the attribute.

       --output-text-symbols
              Generates  a  text  file  containing  the  resource  symbols  of the R class in the
              specified folder.

       --ignore-assets
              Assets to be ignored.
