What files should be in my .gitignore for an Android Studio project?
I have seen several examples that all include .iml but IntelliJ docs say that .iml must be included in your source control.
Update: Since Android Studio 1.0 (updated on 1.5), new projects are created with this gitignore file:
*.iml .gradle /local.properties /.idea/workspace.xml /.idea/libraries .DS_Store /build /captures
Verify if it suits your needs and if not, read on.
A late answer but none of the answers here and here was right on the money for us...
So, here's our gitignore file:
#built application files *.apk *.ap_ # files for the dex VM *.dex # Java class files *.class # generated files bin/ gen/ # Local configuration file (sdk path, etc) local.properties # Windows thumbnail db Thumbs.db # OSX files .DS_Store # Eclipse project files .classpath .project # Android Studio *.iml .idea #.idea/workspace.xml - remove # and delete .idea if it better suit your needs. .gradle build/ #NDK obj/
Optional - for older project format, add this section to your gitignore file:
/*/out /*/*/build /*/*/production *.iws *.ipr *~ *.swp
This file should be located in the project's root folder and not inside the project's module folder.
Since version 0.3+ it seems you can commit and push *.iml and build.gradle files. If your project is based on Gradle: in the new open/import dialog, you should check the
"use auto import" checkbox and mark the
"use default gradle wrapper (recommended)" radio button. All paths are now relative as @George suggested.
