What You Need to Know Before Switching from Eclipse to Android Studio

Android Studio has been getting attention lately as the usurper of Eclipse's Android IDE throne. We've heard some positive things already - Paresh Mayani's intro, for example, and Bill Donahue's look at how it feels to switch (pretty good, apparently) - but as with any major change in one's development habits, there are going to be issues. For this reason, AirPair's Rex St. John has written a series of tips to prepare anybody planning a migration to Android Studio. For example:

  • There are no work-spaces or sub-projects
  • JAR dependencies work differently
  • Some things in the manifest are automatically populated
  • Gradle has a substantial learning curve

For each, St. John explains how things work in Android Studio, and he has a few other resources he points to that expand on particular topics. One notable example is a step-by-step walk-through to help you actually migrate your existing Eclipse projects to Android Studio.

Check out St. John's full post if you're thinking about switching over.
