In the previous article, I described the installation and basic configuration of IntelliJ IDEA. Android development is ready now. Then I will describe how to use it actually.
Creating a New Project
When you click “Create New Project” in Welcome screen, “New Project” window opens. Select “Application Module” in “Android” section, and specify “Project name” and “Project Location”, then press “Next”.
Importing an Existing Project
If you want to import an existing project, by “Import Project”, specify the folder that contains the source project and ther matters required settings. (If Eclipse project and there is “.project” file, by “Open Project”, you can import it by sepecifying the “.project” file. However, “Import Project” is more useful because you can specify the matters in detail. )
If you want to manage the project in Git, you need to place “.gitignore” appropriate for your development environment. You can use gitignore/Android.gitignore at master · github/gitignore · GitHub. You can also refer to Log folder of Proguard and .gitignore on IntelliJ | DeVlog.
Open Project Folder
Use SDK/AVD Manager
Export Signed APK
To exprot signed APK, from the “Build” menu, click “Generate Signed APK …”.
I think you got a clue if you know above. At first, there may be a confusion. Please developing with reference also Getting Help a>.
