by installing them into `/usr/lib/android-sdk`.

Here are the steps for building Android apps using Debian's Android SDK on
Stretch.
1. `sudo apt install android-sdk android-sdk-platform-23`

The Gradle Android Plugin is also packaged. Using the Debian package instead of
the one from online Maven repositories requires a little configuration before
running _gradle_. In the _buildscript_ block:
* add `maven { url 'file:///usr/share/maven-repo' }` to repositories
* use `compile 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:debian'` to load the plugin
Currently there is only the target platform of API Level 23 packaged, so only
apps targeted at _android-23_ can be built with only Debian packages. There are
plans to add more API platform packages via backports. Only _build-tools_ 24.0.0
is available, so in order to use the SDK, build scripts need to be modified.
Beware that the Lint in this version of Gradle Android Plugin is still
problematic, so running the :lint tasks might not work. They can be turned off
with _lintOptions.abortOnError_ in _build.gradle_. Google binaries can be

## Why include the Android SDK in Debian?
While Android developers could develop and ship apps right now using these
Debian packages, this is not very flexible since only `build-tools-24.0.0` and
`android-23` platform are available. Currently, the [Debian Android Tools
Team](https://wiki.debian.org/AndroidTools) is not aiming to cover the most
common use cases. Those are pretty well
covered by Google's binaries (except for the proprietary license on the Google
binaries), and are probably the most work for the Android Tools Team to cover.
The current focus is on use cases that are poorly covered by the Google
binaries, for example, like where only specific parts of the whole SDK are used.

In the long run, the Android Tools Team aims to cover more use cases well, and
also building the Android NDK. This all will happen more quickly if there are
more contributors on the Android Tools team! Android is the most popular mobile

combination that should grow only more integrated.
