Day 2 of trying to get into android development with flutter.

- Downloads Android Studio
- Tries to download Android-SDK from Android Studio's SDK Manager: "Error: Android SDK is missing or out of date".

YEAH NO FUCKING WAY, THAT'S WHY I'M TRYING TO DOWNLOAD IT.

- Uninstalls flutter and android studio

Lost all motivation to get into mobile development again.

    You can use anything else than AS for flutter development. Like VSCode or even vim.

    @WildOrangutan But you need to download the Android sdk and the AVD using AS

    @sqlkid AVD makes me kill myself faster than Covid-19.

    How about playing by the rules? Downloading android studio completely will get you the sdk, avd, emulator and java setup by default. Then simply go to plugins and install flutter plugin. You would be good to go in no time

    I have seen way too many web devs getting stuck at installing individual components just because they got scared by the bulky-ness of android studio.

    Well here's a truth:

    YOU HAVE COME TO THE TURTLE LAND . THERE'S NO ESCAPE, HAVE PATIENCE . KEEP CALM AND LOOK AT YOUR GRADLE BUILDS.

    @StopWastingTime I actually did install AS. The problem is that I couldn't download the Android sdk from the AS Sdk manager. Which should be pretty obvious if you read the rant.

    @Creep oh no i was talking about the cmd line comments. I also a similar question in stack overflow where a guy was trying to install every component individually because he wanted to something react native.

    And usually everything works well with their exe or tar.gz file, i wonder what went wrong. Did it fail at the installation nor after you tried to create a project in it?

    I remember trying flutter very long time ago. It was a cumbersome process that involved some cmd, but the problems usually arrive when we start installing the flutter plugins, not at the avd step
