At Huawei Developer Conference 2019, the company explained many important things about the ‘Ark Compiler’ that can increase the efficiency of an Android application and can also play a crucial role in its Harmony OS.
And today, Huawei has confirmed that the Ark compiler will go open-source on August 31. So, third-party developers can use it to compile their own application through this platform and its support will be expanded to more Huawei and Honor models via EMUI updates.
Ark Compiler is Huawei’s self-developed application compiler and works to improve the compilation efficiency of Android apps by directly interpreting and executing the machine code/binary code to the system language. Removing the need for additional frameworks, used to convert machine code to the system language and consumes extra resources.
According to Huawei, Ark Compiler can greatly improve the efficiency of the Android System itself, improving fluency by 24 percent, response speed by 44 percent, and smoothness of third-party applications by up to 60 percent.
