Android – Import projects from Git

By -

There are many cases when we have requirement and need to clone Git repository, at that time we have to clone repository by using Git Client, FYI I have installed Git GUI client on my windows machine. By cloning this way, we have to import those project into eclipse manually. Now, What if there is a way directly by which we can have projects imported directly into Eclipse (or Android ADT or Android studio).

This article’s main aim is to show you step by step process to import projects from Git directly into Android ADT. Before following steps make sure you have installed Eclipse EGit in your Eclipse. If you have downloaded Android ADT Bundle then you don’t need to worry.

    I am new to android, so this may be a simple fix, but what do you do after importing Volley you receive the error “[2013-06-24 11:07:08 - Volley] Unable to resolve target ‘android-14′”

      You should install API level 14. Open the Android SDK Manager and install Android 4.0 (API 14).

    I followed all above steps and got this warning and error:

    WARNING: unable to write jarlist cache file C:UsersLuanNVgitvolleybinjarlist.cache

    ERROR: resource directory ‘C:UsersLuanNVgitvolleyres’ does not exist

    I also tried to add Volley library to VolleyExample project but no libraries displayed.
    I ‘ve tried some ways but no result.
    Do I need to install Eclipse Egit? I’m using Eclipse Indigo

    I also tried with Android ADT from ADT Bundle and got the same error
