Android Keystore

In order to create production builds for LunaSea, you must first create and sign the release using the Android Keystore System.

Create a Keystore

Open a terminal window and run the following command to generate a new Android keystore:

keytool -genkey -v -keystore ~/key.jks -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity 10000 -alias lunasea

You can optionally change the following:

  1. -keystore ~/key.jks: By default this will create the new keystore in the home directory of the running user as the file key.jks but this can be changed to any location you like

  2. -alias lunasea: By default the keystore internal alias is set to lunasea but you can use any alias you like

The generation will ask you for some basic information including a password. Please ensure you do not forget this password because you will need it in the next step.

Add the Keystore Information to LunaSea

In the root of the project, enter the android folder and copy your previously generated *.jks keystone into this folder, and name it key.jks.

In the same folder, open Fill in all of the fields with the following information:

  1. storePassword: Password from step 1

  2. keyPassword: Same password from step 1

  3. keyAlias: The chosen alias from step 1

  4. storeFile: Keep it as ../key.jks

Save the file as inside of <project root>/android.

And that's it! You are ready to create production releases of LunaSea using your own signing keystore.
