What is Shashlik
The goal of Shashlik is to provide a way to run Android applications on a standard Linux desktop as easily and simply as possible.
Under the hood
The easiest way to run an Android app correctly is to simply run Android. It’s a linux base that we can nest inside our session. OpenGL and graphics are all rendered on the host ensuring fast performance.
Shashlik provides an incredibly stripped down Android base which boots directly into the loaded app, but with a running activity manager and daemons so that intents still work correctly.
