Android Studio Tutorial

Android Studio TutorialI have been getting Android Studio requests for a while now so I decided to make one. In my opinion Android Studio is finally better then Eclipse for developing Android apps. It is also very easy to install.

We’ll look at how to install it on Windows and Mac OSX. Then well configure everything properly to make sure we handle the potential errors. We set up gitHub and go over how to push to remote repositories. We then look at Gradle, the interface and much more.

    Hi Derek,

    I encountered this error when installing Android SDK Manager.

    URL not found: c:\Program Files(x86)\Android\android-studio\sdk\temp\ (Access is denied).

    Are you able to help ?

    Thank You !

    This is more a curiosity. I have been using Eclipse to do my development and have seen, but not used Android Studio. Why did you chose to use Android Studio over Eclipse.

    I have not watched the video and if this is answered in the video, I apologize.

      I use Android Studio now because it is geared completely towards making Android apps. Nothing gets in the way and all the plugins I need are preinstalled.

    I am 14 minutes into your video and it seems that my preview on the right has disappeared and replaced with a message “rendering problem: no android sdk found”. Why may this be and how can I fix this?

    I just wanted to say thank you for this tutorial. I’ve tried a few other tutorials and things haven’t worked at all. I couldn’t figure out if it was because i was using windows 8 or the new android studio or what but it wouldn’t work. I watched your video and it works! So whatever it was, thanks! 🙂

    Hi Derek, Love your work. I have just started your Android tutorial with this video but am stuck on the Git bit. Androis studio is setup and working, i went to git and set up an account but when i try to import version control\share project on github (at 11:18 in the video), i keep getting an error fatal: remote origin already exists git. I have deleted the repository, retried, deleted, etc etc… head is wrecked at now!
    It would have been nice if you had of covered git in THIS video, i know there is a seperate git video but as this is for beginners, it would have been helpful especially as this seems to be a common enough issue.
    Thanks for your work.

      Thank you : Try VCS -> Enable version Control -> Git and then in the directory where you have your files type remote add and then VCS -> Commit changes -> Commit & Push

      fatal: remote already exists that means you already added it. To see your remotes do git remote -v and git remote rm to remove.

    Hi Derek,
    First of all thanks for the great videos… I would love to see them all. and for the past few days I have been spending several HOURS (seriously) on your site and youtube channel.
    I don’t know if this is an obvious question but is it possible to install on Win 8.1?
    I was able to install more or less everything but when I tried to run the AVD I have no devices in the list and when I try to create I have the ‘OK’ button grayed out… Any tips?

    • Derek Banas says:

      Make sure you are using Java 7 and not 8. Go to Control Panel -> System -> Advanced system settings -> Environment Variables and add JAVA_HOME=YourPathToJava (Something like \Java2\jdk1.7.0) I hope that helps
