Has anyone gotten Apache NiFi running on an Android Phone?

Super Guru

Otherwise we can just send REST calls out, but it would be interesting to have NIFI or an agent on a phone.

Anyone try this?

I would like to send phone sensor data to NIFI.

Re: Has anyone gotten Apache NiFi running on an Android Phone?

NiFi itself is not a good fit for running on the phone. Today. The architectural focus should be around getting sensor data off of the phone.

That being said, MiNiFi effort could end up being that lightweight runtime which could be running on the phone directly. You can read more here: https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/NIFI/MiNiFi

https://github.com/benqiu2016/nifi-minifi-cpp has the working C++ MiNiFi code.

If you cross compile the application using ARM, it can be adb push into the phone and run.

We are still in the development phase of the C++ native MiNiFi.

Is there any progress on this as we are in 2019 now and this post is almost 3 years back . Is there an easy way to install Minifi on an Android Phone and then use it to transmit data
