Android Command line tools only

Hi there.

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:

This message is a bump of How to command-line build of_v0.10.1_android_release and Linux android command-line build (ant? make?) - #2 by nunos, mods please excuse if this is considered littering.

Thank you.


If you use the project generator, you should just be able to run ./gradlew assembleRelease and it’ll compile and package your project.
