Android SDK Manager

I installed Xamarin Studio on a Mac that already have MonoDevelop. I am trying to debug a project build with Modo for Android. I have an error saying that an API file is missing:

"Could not find android.jar for API level 15. This means the Android SDK platform for API Level 15 is not installed. Either install it in the Android SDK Manager, ...

I cannot find the Android SDK Manager on the Mac.

Any cues?

  • Thanks.

    I was able to find it with Terminal. I'm not very familiar with Macs. How can I find this location with the Finder, it seems that "library" is an hidden folder. Is there an easy way to create a shortcut for tools/android?

    go to your home directory and in the "Go" finder menu hold down the option key to make it selectable.

    Once you are there I guess that you can ln -s your home directory.

    I cannot find the Android SDK Manager on the Mac.

    1. Within Xamarin Studio, click Tools > Open AVD Manager. This opens the Android Virtual Device Manager.
    2. Within the Android Virtual Device Manager, click Tools > Managed SDK...
    3. Within the Android SDK Manager, select Android 4.0.3 (API 15) > SDK Platform, then click the Install X packages... button.
