Android Studio Tips and Customization


Android Studio (AS) is a powerful Interactive Development Environment (IDE) that greatly facilitates the development of Android apps. This Appendix gives some tips and customizations that may be useful in getting the most out of AS. The remarks refer specifically to Android Studio 2.1.1 on Fedora Linux, but other versions on other platforms will likely be similar.



Some general features and tips are collected here, in no particular order.

A more extensive discussion of using Android Studio and its features may be found in this book.

Version Control

It is highly recommended that you use version control software to keep track of your projects. Android Studio supports several version control systems: GitHub, Git, Subversion (SVN), CVS, Google Cloud, and Mercurial. The basics of using Git and the GitHub repository for version control with Android Studio are described in the Appendix Version Control.
