After some further reading and several false starts, I ended up with this,

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

You would need to check if:

|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

Builds depending on the build.gradle files should work to. But again: using
a VCS is the better way to go.

|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 do I export an Android Studio project?|
In the Android Studio go to File then Close Project. Then take the folder

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

|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

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

can go on creating "Blank Activities" (File --> New --> Others--> Android

At some point I too tried to do this, but the Android Studio doesn’t work
quite like Eclipse does.
It's simpler: if you create a project at, say
/home/USER/Projects/AndroidStudio/MyApplication from there on all new
projects will default to /home/USER/Projects/AndroidStudio.
You can also edit ~/.AndroidStudioPreview/config/options/ide.general.xml
(in linux) and change the line that reads <option
name="lastProjectLocation" value="$USER_HOME$/AndroidStudioProjects" />
to <option name="lastProjectLocation"
value="$USER_HOME$/Projects/AndroidStudio" />, but be aware that as soon
as you create a project anywhere else this will change to that place and
all new projects will default to it.

|Cant create android studio project after updating to 0.2.1|
This is most likely a problem with your Android SDK.
New updates to the Android SDK / Android Studio sometimes add extra
required repos for SDK libraries.
By looking at your error message, it appears that you are missing the
Android Support Repository:
When updating your Android SDK, also be sure that your are updating the
correct SDK location. Android Studio now ships with its own SDK copy
already integrated. If you are building from the commandline and also using
Android Studio, you may have two copies of the SDK (one which is accessed
via commandline and one which is accessed when building from Android
Studio. Updating one of these will not automatically update the other.
