Android Studio Rename Package

How do you rename packages in new IDE Android Studio, based on intelijj ?

Is there any automatic refactoring included?

I want to make bulk refactoring but I don't know how. I worked 2 years with eclipse and in eclipse it's one click operation.

Answer

In Android Studio, you can do this:

For example, if you want to change com.example.app to my.awesome.game, then:

  1. In your Project pane, click on the little gear icon ( Gears icon )

  2. Uncheck / De-select the Compact Empty Middle Packages option

Compact Empty Middle Packages

  1. Your package directory will now be broken up in individual directories

  2. Individually select each directory you want to rename, and:

    • Right-click it
    • Select Refactor
    • Click on Rename
    • In the Pop-up dialog, click on Rename Package instead of Rename Directory
    • Enter the new name and hit Refactor
    • Allow a minute to let Android Studio update all changes
    • Note: When renaming com in Android Studio, it might give a warning. In such case, select Rename All

enter image description here

  1. Now open your Gradle Build File (build.gradle - Usually app or mobile). Update the applicationId to your new Package Name and Sync Gradle, if it hasn't already been updated automatically:

Refactor Directories

  1. Done! Anyways, Android Studio needs to make this process a little simpler.
