Android Sdk Offline Installer Free Download

Hi there. Long time not see you here :). This time I will talk about Android, amobile operating system made by Google which is using modified Linux kernel. Iknew this thing years ago, but I made Android apps just for fun, which onlyrunnable in the emulator (Android gadget was not available yet at that time).Anyway, lately I get back my curiosity on Android development because of itsgood prospect (I think) and my brand new Android phone, hoho :). Hopefully inthe following month I will publish some free Android apps for all of you :)

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:
  1. Android SDK and its components
Android Robot

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 installationSdk, 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

After that, we just need to extract those components in the correct folders. See the following structure (for example, if you extract the SDK in the C:android)

Next, download the ADT Plugin for Eclipse manually (for offline installation)from http://dl.google.com/android/ADT-0.9.7.zip(for version 0.9.7) and read the finemanual how to use it in Eclipse. In the end, take a look atHelloWorldapplication to see if your installation works perfectly. Happy coding! ;)
