Android devs

Install JAVA

yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk java-1.8.0-openjdk-devel

Install SDK Tools:

Download the sdk-tools zip from here

mkdir /opt/android
cd /opt/android

The sdk should go under /opt/android/tools

unzip sdk-tools.zip
sudo chmod a+x $(sudo find . -type f -executable )

Create a /etc/profile.d or just modify PATH directly

ANDROID_HOME=/opt/android
$ANDROID_HOME/tools/bin:$ANDROID_HOME/platform-tools:$ANDROID_HOME/tools

Then run:

sudo /opt/android/tools/bin/sdkmanager tools

This refreshes the tools and makes sure some basic stuff is there.

SDK Manager packages

sdkmanager --list

TO check the list and install (use sudo…)

build-tools;<version>
platforms;android-<version>
 'system-images;android-19;google_apis;x86'

Install latest, and others as required

This is needed by cordova and some applications:

Gradle

Choose binary only releases

cd /opt
unzip gradle-bin.zip
ln -s gradle-<version> gradle

Add gradle bin to PATH

When creating AVDs need to tweak config.ini (inside $HOME/.android/avd/.avd

hw.gpu.enabled=yes
hw.gpu.mode=host

CORDOVA INSTALL

sudo yum install nodejs npm (From EPEL)
sudo npm install -g cordova
