Import Android Studio project from git into Android Studio (Gradle)
I’ve been reading this for hours now and everyone seems to have a different approach or that the tutorials are out of date.
Android Studio .gitignore only includes the app directory, this is on purpose. For what reason I do not know. When trying to clone the git repo Android Studio does not know how to handle it. A very annoying flaw in Android Studio.
What should be in my .gitignore for an Android Studio project?
I have a remote git repo containing the project in the form:
as you can see the git repo contains the
I then try to import it via
Check out project from Version Control and select

The answer is obvious when looking at the .gitignore file of a newly created project. The build.gradle file IS and SHOULD be included in the push to the remote repo.
So the person who made the repo in my question is doing it wrong. The .gitignore file includes:
.gradle /local.properties /.idea/workspace.xml /.idea/libraries .DS_Store /build /captures
As seen, more files should of been uploaded to the remote repo.
Choose Existing Sources instead of Import
