android – How to debug custom lint detector

Questions:

I’ve written a custom lint detector based off this example repo. I’m trying to debug the detector using the tests provided however when I try to run these tests through Android Studio all I get is an error in the bottom right

Empty throwable: Unable to determine gradle tasks to execute

Full error:

I’m unsure what the issue is as I believe I should be able to debug the detectors like this (see this source)
