Prepare for Android Development

April 4, 2016 — Leave a comment

If you already have installed Android from Android Studio or Eclipse, you’re done.

If not we don’t need an extra IDE – complete development workflow can be done from Qt Creator, if Android SDK and Android NDK are installed.

Please download SDK from here. Select the Installer for your OS:

a_install_sdk_01

Follow the instructions:

a_install_sdk_02

GoTo the folder where you installed the Android SDK and search for /tools/android and double-click to start:

configure_sdk_01

Now select what you need. I selected API 22 (Android 5.1.1) – currently running on BlackBerry PRIV and API 23 (Android 6):

configure_sdk_02

Now it can take some time to get it all installed.

Optional you can download and install ANT.

install_ant

Qt can use ANT or Gradle to deploy to Android devices.

As last step we must download and install the Android NDK:

install_ndk_01

Select the right version for your OS:

install_ndk_02

Follow the instructions:

install_ndk_03

That’s all to enable you to develop Android APPs from Qt.
