Running Android Studio on your MAC

I just enrolled this Android course in coursera. The udemy courses I bought just sucks so maybe I will continue it later but first I will be focusing on this course – Coursera it’s like a virtual classroom it has quizzes, projects, deadline and grading system.

First install the following:

  • Mac® OS X® 10.8.5 or higher, up to 10.9 (Mavericks)
  • 2 GB RAM minimum, 4 GB RAM recommended
  • 400 MB hard disk space
  • At least 1 GB for Android SDK, emulator system images, and caches
  • 1280 x 800 minimum screen resolution
  • Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6
  • Java Development Kit (JDK) 7

Then if you are using same mac machine as mine you might need the following:

1. Install homebrew

paste this on your terminal and run:

ruby -e “$(curl -fsSL https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Homebrew/install/master/install)”

Then after that paste this:

brew install caskroom/cask/brew-cask && brew update
brew cask install intel-haxm

Then download Android Studio and install - http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html


You can now test your IDE by running a Hello World application

Enjoy 🙂
