Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12546) Latest Android SDK tools introduce bug w/ Android emulator
Date Thu, 16 Mar 2017 14:20:42 GMT


ASF GitHub Bot commented on CB-12546:

Github user filmaj commented on the issue:
    @dpogue thanks for checking! So I think `android_sdk_version` failing in this case is
kind of expected, as that script, historically, did not do any environment checking, and I
tried keeping the same behaviour.
    The other commands that are part of `Api.js`, like `build` and `clean` and `run`, [always
call through to `check_reqs`](
Part of that functionality in this pull request now [automatically adds the new SDK tools
to your `PATH`](
if they are missing. That's why the `build` command worked for you, but the `android_sdk_version`
command did not.
    We could tweak the behaviour of `android_sdk_version` so that it calls through to `check_reqs`
as well? This change would fix that command failing in your case, and provide more meaningful
errors for people who don't have their environments configured properly (i.e. will check for
missing `ANDROID_HOME`, will munge `PATH` based on what kinds of Android tooling it will find,
etc.). What do you think?
    The deeper question that rises out of this is: is `android_sdk_version` useful? Is it
worth keeping around? It is not part of the platform API and is still hanging around due to
history more than anything else.
    Let me know what y'all think.

{{emulator}} binary. E.g.:

> ➔ emulator -avd nexus5-5.1

> Could not launch '../emulator/qemu/darwin-x86_64/qemu-system-x86_64': No such file or
> ~ via ⬢ v6.9.4
> ➔ cd ~/sdks/android/tools
> sdks/android/tools via ⬢ v6.9.4
> ➔ ./emulator -avd nexus5-5.1
> emulator: WARNING: encryption is off
> Hax is enabled
> Hax ram_size 0x80000000
> HAX is working and emulator runs in fast virt mode.
> {noformat}
> Potential fix: tweak the {{cordova run --emulator}} command to change the current working
directory to be the location of the emulator binary. That might be an easy fix, as cordova
uses the {{superspawn}} node module to kick off the {{emulator}} process. That module takes
an optional {{cwd}} parameter.
> Let's also check for the existence of {{android}} vs. {{sdkmanager}} to fix the listing
of images based on SDK version.
