Not yet. Currently Android Studio follows (Google) Gradle Android project
so by default
If your project structure is different you can fiddle with it adding

|Create New Project Android Studio 0.2.3 - Unable to start Gradle daemon process|
Well I managed to solve it after many hours of trying.
First of all I use Windows 7, with 16GB ram, and it was the system path
that was truncated!
This left me without the proper GRADLE_HOME path.
I manually downloaded the latest Gradle-1.7 build.
Android studio 0.2.3 was using 1.6, but subsequently to my manual fix 0.2.5
I created a System variable: GRADLE_HOME with value: D:gradle-1.7 that
points to my manual Gradle install.
I broke my 'real path' (before windows truncated it) into 'extended' path
variables, thus shortening my actual path, and inserted the following at
the end of the path:

|How to open android documentation and samples of code in android studio|
First you need to make sure the documentation is added to Android Studio.
Go to File -> Project Structure. Under the Platform Settings heading, add
or select an Android Platform. Go to the Documentation Paths tab and make
sure the path to your SDK's documenation folder is added there - it should
eference, where [SDK] is the full path to your SDK
installation. If it is not there add it manually.
Once this is done, use Ctrl+F1 while your cursor is on the item you want to
display help for.
The samples have not been ported to Android Studio yet, but I'm sure google
will get around to it at some point. For now follow the instructions in the
comments by androidika (you will need a copy of Eclipse installed).

|Automatically versioning Android project from git describe with Android Studio/Gradle|
After some further reading and several false starts, I ended up with this,
added to the bottom of build.gradle in the project directory (that is,
MyAppProject/MyApp/build.gradle, not MyAppProject/build.gradle --
confusing, I know, but the former directory is projectDir in Gradle so
that's how I refer to it here). It depends on no external utilities other
than Git, which is assumed to be in the path, so it should work on any OS
(even though I used forward slashes in the paths, they get converted to
backslashes on Windows).
It could probably stand to be improved, I'm sure, as my understanding of
Gradle is pretty rudimentary and my Groovy may not be very idiomatic
(though that in particular is less of a concern). I have a feeling that my
approach is suboptimal because it involves generatin

Your build.gradle is trying to use Android SDK tools 8 which isn't

If you look at your build.gradle file you probably have this line
buildToolsVersion "8". You want your build.gradle file to point to the

latest). Just open the Android SDK manager and see which tools you have
installed and change the buildToolsVersion "8" to the right version.

It's a known issue. Maybe you should try this:

|Android studio: new project vs new module|
From the documentation (Android Studio is based on Intellij IDEA) :
Whatever you do in IntelliJ IDEA, you do that in the context of a
project. A project is an organizational unit that represents a
complete software solution.
Your finished product may be decomposed into a series of discrete,
isolated modules, but it's a project definition that brings them
together and ties them into a greater whole.
For Android, it means one project per app, and one module per library and
per test app.
There are multiple issues if you try to build multiple apps within the same
project. It's possible, but if you try (like I did), you will see that
almost everything is designed to work with a single app per project.
For example, there is an option to "rebuild the project", which makes n

|Android Studio: add project as library|
Edit the settings.gradle file (in directory f:/my project), it must
contains something like this:
include 'my app','my library'
If this file don't exists: create it manually. The settings.gradle contains
the list of gradle modules in a multi-module project.
Then you must add the dependency to your library in app. To do so edit the
my app/build.gradle and add this line :
compile project(':my library')
I also notice that you don't use default structure for your projects (i.e.
you put the code in src/ instead of src/main/java) so you will have to
overwrite some values of the default fileSet in the build.gradle of your
projects. Be sure to have something like this in my app/build.gradle and my
|How to use a Android Studio project on two computers?|
Like the others i agree, that using a VCS would be the best solution. Even
though you can try to filter all android studio related files (like *.iml,
.idea folder and local.properties). I don't know if you can do this with
dropbox or if you need some kind of 3rd software.
After that you should be able to make source code changes on both computers
without greater problems. (You may have to declare project dependencies
changes for the android studio twice)
Builds depending on the build.gradle files should work to. But again: using
a VCS is the better way to go.
|Collaborating on Android Studio Project using git|
You would need to check if:
you can configure Android Studio to use relative paths in the .iml
(as shown in this old issue, using file://$PROJECT_DIR$/..., or this issue
using content url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/...)
or you would need to register a content filter driver (in a .gitattributes
file) able to replace, on checkout, any absolute path by $MODULE_DIR$.
If that 'smudge' script doesn't detect any, your module.iml will be
If it does detect absolute path, that script can introduce the proper
modifications, and you will add and commit those, for others to reuse your
project in a more portable way.

|How do I export an Android Studio project?|
In the Android Studio go to File then Close Project. Then take the folder
(in the workspace folder) of the project and copy it to a flash memory or
whatever. Then when you get comfortable at home, copy this folder in the
workspace folder you've already created, open the Android Studio and go to
File then Open and import this project into your workspace.
The problem you have with this is that you're searching for the wrong term
here, because in Android, exporting a project means compiling it to .apk
file (not exporting the project). Import/Export is used for the .apk
management, what you need is Open/Close project, the other thing is just

I had a similar problem with ABS and other library imports. The 'Project

Reimporting the project after some cleanup did work for me.
As a precaution, take a backup of your project and store it safely
Ensure that your project builds via gradle command-line and you have all
required dependencies specified in respective build.gradle files. Try
building with: gradle clean && gradle build

|How to import Android Studio project in Eclipse?|
As the others say, a full import is not possible, but just try a manual

directory), the resource XML files and the Manifest. Just create a new
Android project in Eclipse and simply copy these files over. You may have
to create a new package structure, so construct the necessary packages and
copy each sourcefile over and refactor the package name if necessary. If
you use any additional libraries, you may have to manually import them as

Make sure that the SDK folder you mention exists - I'm not sure if it is a
typo or not but the path you specified is a bit weird - it should be
C:Program Files (x86)Androidandroid-studiosdk
On the menu go to File -> Project Structure, then choose SDKs under
Platform Settings. Check that the path for the Android Platform you use is
correct, and if not, change it to the correct path. Also make sure that the
Project is set to use the correct Android Platform.

When you are creating a new project, you have to select "Android
