Google announced big changes for developers today in a post to the official Android Developers blog, stating the company is to stop development and support for Android Developer Tools (ADT) in Eclipse at the end of this year.
Over the next few months, Google will continue to improve upon Android Studio, its new go-to for app development. For developers, this means that it is time to migrate any existing Eclipse ADT projects into Android Studio. As Google notes, this process is very simple – File, New, Import Project in Android Studio.
As stated in the post by the Android Developers team, “We are focused on Android Studio so that our team can deliver a great experience on a unified development environment. Android tools inside Eclipse will continue to live on in the open source community via the Eclipse Foundation.”
If you develop, it’s time to migrate.
