I’d like to avoid Android Studio (size, bloated, etc), and it’s possible to build Android projects just with the command line (actually its all we use on every platform).
I remember in 2015 with ant scripts this was feasible. Wondering if anyone has tests, pointers, directions, offroad charts… Something like what @kkirbatski suggests was possible in earlier versions of of-android, circa 14, 15:
Thanks. I have figured that part out. But it still doesn’t work. Neither does latest Android studio, or even from an old 3.1.2 Android studio setup I had where it all worked.
The gradle script is impressive and all functionality is already there. ./gradlew tasks

But it fails on my systems, my older machine with a working setup broke, and now from manjaro, I always end up with errors on the making part of the project.
