How to create a Package with Python-for-Android in windows?

I am using

Kivy framework
. I want to create a package for android using the
python-for-android
project in windows 7. I read this link http://kivy.org/docs/guide/packaging-android.html. The Buildozer as I read automates the entire build process but it currently works only in Linux. The other method given here uses
git
which I am not aware of much and it also says that you'll need a linux computer or a virtual machine. Please furnish me with some method to create a complete
apk package
without the git knowledge
in the windows
. Thanks.

Answer

you dont build it in windows ... you build it in linux ... luckily they made it easy to run linux in windows.

  1. you download oracle virtualbox

https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Downloads

  1. then you download the image that kivy provides that is all setup to build android packages for you

http://kivy.org/docs/guide/packaging-android-vm.html

(you now have a linux machine ready to build on)

  1. then you build in the virtualbox following the standard build procedure outlined here http://kivy.org/docs/guide/packaging-android.html#packaging-your-application-into-apk
