Previously we went through launching Android emulator without installing Android studio. In this note we will launch Angular application on that emulator.
First, what we need to do is we have to install build tools by
sdkmanager in order to be able to build applications :
Also we can add
%ANDROID_HOME%\platform-tools as the entries into
Path variable to improve the experience. It will allow us to run
adb commands from any directory in command line. Just use
Start -> Edit the system environment variables -> Environment variables... -> Path -> New for doing that.
Prepare a NativeScript project for running
If you haven't install
nativescript cli yet, you can do it by executing the following command:
npm install -g nativescript
Next, create new project from scratch:
tns create HelloWorld --template tns-template-blank-ng cd HelloWorld
This is just an example of angular application for running. You can use your own app for this.
Run the emulator
Type the following to see a list of available emulators:
avdmanager list avd
We'll see something like:
Available Android Virtual Devices: Name: test_avd_29 Path: C:\Users\Andrei_Fedotov\.android\avd\test_avd_29.avd Target: Google APIs (Google Inc.) Based on: Android 10.0 (Q) Tag/ABI: google_apis/x86_64 Sdcard: 512 MB
Next, let's run the emulator:
emulator -avd test_avd_29
Okay, emulator is working. What we are gonna be doing next is we are just gonna be launching the app on that emulator.
To see a list of available emulators we can use
$ adb devices
List of devices attached emulator-5554 device
Or we can use
By using one of above commands we can know a Device Identifier for launching the app on emulator.
Next, let's use the following command to launch the app:
tns run android --device emulator-5554
After building we'll see the app launched
If you're receiving the error
Failed to open /qemu.conf, err: 2, try to create this file by executing
echo # > c:\qemu.conf and launch
cmd as administrator.
