Running Android Studio on your MAC

I just enrolled in this Android course in Coursera. The udemy courses I bought just sucks so maybe I will continue it later, but first I will be focusing on this course – Coursera it’s like a virtual classroom it has quizzes, projects, deadline and grading system.

First, install the following:

  • Mac® OS X® 10.8.5 or higher, up to 10.9 (Mavericks)
  • 2 GB RAM minimum, 4 GB RAM recommended
  • 400 MB hard disk space
  • At least 1 GB for Android SDK, emulator system images, and caches
  • 1280 x 800 minimum screen resolution
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6
  • Java Development Kit (JDK) 7

Then if you are using the same mac machine like mine, you might need the following:

1. Install homebrew

paste this on your terminal and run:

ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL”

Then after that paste this:

<span class="pln">brew install caskroom</span><span class="pun">/</span><span class="pln">cask</span><span class="pun">/</span><span class="pln">brew</span><span class="pun">-</span><span class="pln">cask </span><span class="pun">&&</span><span class="pln"> brew update

</span>Then download Android Studio and install -  You can now test your IDE by running a Hello World application Enjoy :)
