Using Lumberyard with Android Studio

Android Studio is the integrated development environment (IDE) provided by Google so you can build applications. The IDE includes editing, debugging, and performance tools, as well as a build and deploy system.


To use Lumberyard with Android Studio, you must have the following:

  • Lumberyard and the Lumberyard SDK installed

  • Your development environment set up

  • Basic knowledge of the Lumberyard Waf build system

  • Lumberyard configured to build Android games

    For information, see Android Support.

  • Android Studio 2.1.x installed

    For information, see Android Studio.


    We highly recommend using the Canary version of Android Studio 2.2 Preview 1+ to support the latest version of the Google Experimental Gradle plugin. For information, see Android Studio Preview Release.
