Questions:

How to open an Android Studio project from the Finder? I see the below list of files. Is it possible to double-click one of them to get it opened by Android Studio?

How to&Answers:

Sorry, but there is no one-click run solution like I expect you have with some IDEs like Visual Studio or CodeBlocks.

All you need to do is open your Android Studio and then import a project.


EDIT: I’ve already run Android project in Android Studio using Terminal (using Ubuntu 14.04LTS). This is my full command:

 ./android/android-studio/bin/studio.sh workspace/Android/glucosio-android/

Hope you find it useful

Answer:

You can create command line launcher Tools > Creat Command-line Launcher

If you are using macOS then create an Automator Quick action.

  1. Configure like following
  2. Add a run shell script, then paste /usr/local/bin/studio [email protected]. Make sure pass input is changed to as Arguments.

  3. Save it (say Open with Android studio), then right click on the studio project folder > Quick actions > Open with Android studio. Or if you don’t have much quick action this will list in the bottom of the context menu itself.

Answer:

No, You need import the project from the Android studio.

There isn’t a way to open directly from finder. What you need to do is:

On Android Studio go to File Menu -> New… -> Import Project

Answer:

  • In Finder, select the ListView_Ex2.iml file.
  • Right click, and select Get Info
  • Under Open with: select Other and choose Android Studio, then Always Open With, and click Add.
  • Click Change All…

You can now double-click any IML file to open that project.
