Important before you decide to choose Eclipse as IDE to develop Android Apps.
Google no longer support building apps with Eclipse. The Eclipse ADT plugin is no longer supported latest Google libraries. Android Studio is now the official IDE for Android, so, for the updated version in 2017 and further, we only provide Android Studio projects only in the default download package, but, if you still want to use Eclipse as your IDE, you can download it in the Eclipse source community site and install ADT plugin manually.
Install the ADT Plugin in Eclipse
- Start Eclipse, then select Help > Install New Software.
- Click Add, in the top-right corner.
- In the Add Repository dialog that appears, enter “ADT Plugin” for the Name and the following URL for the Location:
- Click OK, If you have trouble acquiring the plugin, try using “http” in the Location URL, instead of “https” (https is preferred for security reasons).
- In the Available Software dialog, select the checkbox next to Developer Tools and click Next.
- In the next window, you’ll see a list of the tools to be downloaded. Click Next.
- Read and accept the license agreements, then click Finish, If you get a security warning saying that the authenticity or validity of the software can’t be established, click OK.
- When the installation completes, restart Eclipse.
