Google just announced Android Studio, an integrated development environment for building apps.
This IDE is based on IntelliJ IDEA and works as a WYSIWYG for creating android applications.
You can get this IDE from here.
It’s working under OS platforms: Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.
I used under Fedora and this is my short tutorial about this IDE.
The Android Studio has two folders : bin and sdk.
Content of the bin folder has this files and folders:
appletviewer.policy fsnotifier64 libbreakgen64.so studio.sh
build.log idea.png libbreakgen.so studio.vmoptions
build-log.xml idea.properties log.xml
fsnotifier inspect.sh studio64.vmoptions
Content of the SDK folder has this files and folders:
add-ons extras platform-tools sources temp
build-tools platforms samples system-images tools
To run the IDE just need to start from bin folder the studio.sh .
You will see the splash of the Android Studio:
After that will see the IDE.
I don’t tell you all of the features of this IDE.
This will take time and this is just one short tutorial.
Most of this it’s like in the old Eclipse IDE.
I will try to show you something new and also to show how to update the IDE.
First if will see something like this :
If it not update then you need to update the Android Studio.
Go to Menu -> Help -> Check for Update…
After that will need to press button : Update and Restart.
You will see this:
This will update your IDE.
First you need to update your android using this tool: SDK MAnager.
Select your android sdk to build your application.
To start your first project just go to menu File -> New Project …
You will see the next window and will need to fill with your project settings.
I will show you how to make it but into another tutorial.
See you later…
