Setup for Android 🤖

Step 1: Install Android Studio

  • We need command line tools like adb, emulators etc to work with android
  • Easiest way is to download and install Android studio
  • Once installed make sure SDK tools are installed via SDK manager

Click on Configure > SDK manager

Click on SDK tools

Add below environment variables:

  • On Mac/Linux: In .bash_profile or .zshrc (followed by running source .zshrc)
  • On Windows: Add them in your System environments variables on Windows
export ANDROID_HOME=$HOME/Library/Android/sdk
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/emulator:$PATH
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/tools/bin:$PATH
export PATH=$ANDROID_HOME/platform-tools:$PATH

Verify adb (android debug bridge) is installed
