I have a six questions about compiling to android. I tried figuring it out myself, but there's a few things I don't understand.
What's the difference between 'android' and 'android-native' and which would I use when compiling. I've tried both and both give different outputs. Or is there another android variant that I should be using, that I'm not aware of?
What do I need for compiling to android? Do I need the JDK? SDK, JVM. I tried installing them but I still wasn't able to get anywhere when I used Eclipse.
Which IDE do I use? I used both intellij and Eclipse but I wasn't able to get the project to compile/debug it. The run/debug buttons were not clickable. Is Android Studio an option? when I complied for android, a project-android-intilij folder shows up but when I opened with intilij, I wasn't able to do anything with it in terms of running/debugging it.
How would I open the project? I tried opening and importing but both options didn't let me run/debug the program in either of the IDE's I used.
Does 'android --compile' make an APK? I know 'windows --compile' makes a .exe but I didn't find an APK when I used the compile tag on android?
How do I use touch input?
These are the six questions I have about compiling to android. I'm working on a really simple program, a four button beat pad but I can't get android to compile, or if I am, I don't know how to get it to a .apk file. And I don't know how to work with touch input.
Thank you for reading this and for any answers anyone can provide,
