To start with, we will first cover the editors & IDE’s you can use for creating the android app, followed by language resources, libraries and plugins you can integrate in your app. Java is the official language used for Android development, but you can use C, C++ and LUA in the Language Resources section.

Top 5 Android Editors and IDEs
  • Android Studio – This is official IDE based on the community-created IntelliJIDEA
  • Eclipse – Before Android Studio, this was mostly used for developing Android apps with Java as the programming language
  • IntelliJIDEA – This IDE consists of the massive amount of community created plugins and is the predecessor of Android Studio, making it highly customisable.
  • Cordova – For cross platform mobile app development using the combination of HTML, CSS and JS
  • Titanium – For creating native apps for iOS, Android and Windows using a single JavaScript codebase
Best Android Language Resources
  • Java – It is best programming language to use for developing android app with it’s own development kit
  • Codecademy – A premier programming code-learning resource available online, 24x7, and has been used by thousands of people for Android development, frameworks
  • Team treehouse – Another online learning website, but well known for the strength of its Java courses
  • Udemy – The fastest online learning website featuring dozens of highly specific and generic Java learning courses
  • New Boston – A YouTube channel featuring hands-on tutorials to learn how to develop in Android with more than 5 million views covering everything from setting up the SDK to XLM Layouts
Android Libraries
  • Universal Image Loader – A highly customizable out-of-the-box image loader and cache of images
  • GSon – For Serializing and de-serializing Java objects in JSON
  • Retrofit – To simplify API calls in your app
  • AndroidView Animations – A large library covering simple syntax to get regular View animations working smoothly
  • Awesome Android Libraries – A curated list of Android development libraries, which is organized as per the functionality, name and license
Android Plug-ins
  • Plugin collection for IntelliJ – This is the prime repository for IntelliJ plugins, an absolute treasure-trove of handy tools for the IntelliJ IDE
  • Import Drawables – You can import drawables at different resolutions and other image-based functionalities in your IntelliJDEA
  • GenyMotion – One of the most widely used and reliable testing plus emulation tool for Android apps
We hope the above mentioned plugins, IDE’s, libraries will help you simplify your android app navigation journey. If you need more specific resources, please list them down in the comment box below.
