Android Question

Gradle DSL method not found android()

I open a friend project at Android Studio, my AS version is greater than his.

Here is the error:

Error:(27, 0) Gradle DSL method not found: 'android()'
Possible causes:The project 'firstapp' may be using a version of Gradle that does not contain the method.
Open Gradle wrapper file The build file may be missing a Gradle plugin.
Apply Gradle plugin.

Here is the build.gradle:

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.
buildscript {
repositories {
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.2.0-alpha1'
classpath 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.4'

// NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
// in the individual module build.gradle files
allprojects {
repositories {
maven {
url 'https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/'
task clean(type: Delete) {
delete rootProject.buildDir

android {
compileSdkVersion 19
buildToolsVersion '21.0.0'
dependencies {

How can i get this fixed?


Look here from official doc. https://developer.android.com/studio/build/index.html

 * The first line in the build configuration applies the Android plugin for
 * Gradle to this build and makes the android {} block available to specify
 * Android-specific build options.

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'
