[Solved] Android studio SDK manager is missing
I am following this ionic tutorial and having some trouble with setting up the SDK in Android Studio in order to test my ionic project.
I am looking for the SDK manager however it seems to be missing. When I select the configure drop down menu there should be an
SDK manager option however it is absent (as you can see in the following image):
Likewise when I select
settings > Appearance and Behaviour > System settings,
Android SDK should be an option here.
I tried selecting project structure and adding a new SDK like this answer however
Android SDK was not an option as you can see in the following image.
Note: I had installed Android Studio a few years ago and it was working but uninstalled it again. I’ve tried to make sure everything was cleaned out before installing it again (i.e deleted the AndroidStudioProjects folder that was left) however I’m not sure what else to look for.
Also If there is another way I can test my ionic build (as opposed to downloading android studio) then I would be grateful if you could advise.
Thank for any help.
You have accidently disabled
Android Support plugin in your plugin list. Try enable it and restart Android Studio.
To be detailed: In your first picture,
Plugins, tick almost everything to enable (for me which is also using Android Studio 3.1.3, there are
Android APK Support,
Google Developers Samples,
Firebase App Indexing,
Google Cloud Tools For Android Studio,
Android NDK Support,
Android Games and
App Links Assistant), then
Restart Android Studio.
It’s actually on the Welcome screen now, under the Configure menu
I couldn’t find it from within the IDE when editing a project. If you have a project open, be sure to click File / Close Project to return to the Welcome screen.
Follow these steps after uninstalling previous version of Android studio:
Download SDK zip file from here –> developer.android.com
Extract the zip file.
Copy and paste that extracted folder into Applications/Android Studio/
- Open Android Studio. Go to: (Quick Start) / Configure / Project Defaults / Project
Structure / (Android SDK Location) and browse SDK folder.
- Apply and save.
If SDK Manager is missing. But SDK is installed.
then you need install Sdk manager command line.
To open the SDK Manager from Android Studio, click Tools > SDK Manager or click SDK Manager in the toolbar. If you’re not using Android Studio, you can download tools using the sdkmanager command-line tool.
