In this post, I’m going to try to walk you through on how is the latest way to install an Android development environment on your PC. By the way, I’m using Windows 7, but I think that the files to be downloaded and steps are almost the same for other OS, so this post can give you an idea if ever you can’t find (on other websites) how it was done in your platform. I actually wrote how to Install Android Development Environment on Ubuntu last year, I hope the changes are minimal so it can still help if you’re using Ubuntu.
|Download the Java Platform (JDK), the one on the left side.|
|Click the blue button “Download the SDK”|
|Agree with the terms and conditions. I have a 32 bit computer. Click the blue button again.|
|Wait for the download to finish. File size is around 400+ MB. Excited to code?|
Step 3: Install JAVA. Run the file we’ve downloaded earlier during Step 1.
Step 4: Extract the SDK ADT Bundle we’ve downloaded earlier during Step 2.
Step 5: Go to the eclipse folder inside the SDK ADT Bundle folder and create a shortcut to your desktop.
|Eclipse is loading.|
|Choose your worksapce.|
Sometimes you will be prompted to update your SDK tools. Just follow the prompt to update your SDK.
|My old codes were in this workspace.|
