# Details

On top of the capabilities you expect from IntelliJ,
Android Studio offers:

- Flexible Gradle-based build system.
- Build variants and multiple APK generation.
- Expanded template support for Google Services and various
device types.
- Rich layout editor with support for theme editing.
- Lint tools to catch performance, usability, version
compatibility, and other problems.
- ProGuard and app-signing capabilities.

# General tips
- google-droid-fonts package may give you font issues with IntelliJ

Android Studio, which is needed to use it effectively.

# No multilib systems
Android Studio "requires" a multilib system. It is however possible
to use PART of its functionality with a 32-bit Slackware or a
64-bit non-multilib Slackware64.

Android Studio. However, it does not work in 32 bit Slackware
and, therefore, jdk is required (available in

- A downgrade of some tools is required to create APKs:
- Gradle 3.2 (File → Project Structure → Project)
- Android plugin 2.2.2 (File → Project Structure → Project)
- Build Tools Version 23.0.3 (File → Project Structure → app under Modules)

## Slackware64 tips.
You will experience some problems installing the Android SDK (as it uses
some 32-bit binaries) and running 32-bit AVDs.
