New library: APK-parser , revived
2 projects | reddit.com/r/androiddev | 3 Jul 2022
I've forked and updated an old, archived APK-parsing library (here's the original) that I use for one of my spare time apps (here), and made the library public and alive again, here.
SimpleInstaller Android library

2&3. I see. Sadly the Android framework can't parse split APK files. This is why there are some other libraries. Sadly what I consider as the most intuitive, comfortable, and light (apk parser, which I forked here to solve some of its issues) is not being maintained anymore. Do you know of a nice alternative to it?
Which Java libraries would benefit from being Kotlin-ified?

In that case, why not take some abandoned library and re-publish it, making other people contribute to it? Example is this one which I've forked from here. It's a library to parse APK files without using the Android framework to do so. I used it on my own app (here) as it has advantages over what Android offers. Sadly it's archived and won't be updated anymore.
