Installing the Android SDK. When you visit the site to download the Android SDK they try to get you to download the full Android Studio, but you don’t need all of that. If you scroll to the bottom, you will see the “Command line tools only” downloads. One note, the downloads listed on the site no longer include the GUI SDK Manager.Let's get into the main point. If we want to develop Android-based application,at least we need to have:
- Android SDK and its components
We can download Android SDK athttp://developer.android.com/sdk. Google provides Android SDK for 3 platforms: Windows, Mac OSX, and Linux.Just download it and extract the .zip or .tgz. After that, we can read the finemanual and start using AVD manager or 'SDK Setup.exe' to performonline installation: download and install its components/packages, suchas Android Platform, documentation, Google API, etc.
- Android SDK
- OSX: android-sdk_r17-macosx.zip
- Linux: android-sdk_r17-linux.tgz
- Win: installer_r17-windows.exe
Anyway, if we want to perform offline installation, we need to downloadit components manually. Actually, Google doesn't provide any hard link forthose, but we can use folderhttp://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/and
Sdk For Android Downloadfilehttp://dl-ssl.google.com/android/repository/repository.xml for reference. So, here it is a list of download link for some AndroidSDK components (for other version of API, check the xml file above).
