Hi. I got as far as chapter 1 of the tutorial. :^) https://docs.nativescript.org/angular/tutorial/ng-chapter-1 I got the message: “Cannot run your app in the native emulator.” So I tried to make an artificial device. https://docs.nativescript.org/angular/tooling/android-virtual-devices
I believe the Setup Android Emulators page is completely wrong. It seems to be referring to running on Windows. (environment variables exposed using percent signs, executables end in .exe) But a larger issue: SDK Manager (and AVD Manager) are not available from the command line anymore. Google expects you to install Android Studio.
I found ways around that, and created some devices. But the application won’t really start. I get the message:
Cannot run your app in the native emulator. Increase the timeout of the operation with the --timeout option or try to restart your adb server with 'adb kill-server' command. Alternatively, run the Android Virtual Device manager and increase the allocated RAM for the virtual device.
I went so far as to install Android Studio, to get the Google-approved access to the managers. But I still haven’t succeeded.
The next step is to go through some tutorials on Android Studio and solve that as a general problem. And then come back to this problem with greater knowledge.
But I don’t want to do that. Time spent is the enemy of success. Is there a set of instructions that corresponds to the new Android tools?
