Native Android

Trapeze makes it easy to automate the configuration of your native Android projects. When targeting a standalone Android project, no operations for other platforms (iOS, etc) will apply.

Configuration Tool

To use the Configuration-driven experience, first create a yaml file using the options available:

Here's an example:

- file: AndroidManifest.xml
target: manifest/application
<uses-permission android:name="android.permission.WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE" />

npm install @trapezedev/configure
npx trapeze run config.yaml


Pass the main Android project directory to the MobileProject constructor, and then the relative path to the Android project (such as '.' if the root and Android project paths are the same):

import { MobileProject, MobileProjectConfig } from '@trapezedev/project';

const config: MobileProjectConfig = {
android: {
path: '.',

const project = new MobileProject('/path/to/project/dir', config);
await project.load();
