Node.JS application to help with Android development.
You need to have both

To install Android Tools you need to execute the following command:
npm install android-tools -g
Please note that this repository is not published on

In which stage is it?
The application can only build, install, execute and log the application. It is on its early stages, so you shouldn't use it on your daily development.
If you need more help, you can always execute
usage: android-tools [init, build, run] optional parameters: run [--logcat] examples: android-tools init android-tools build android-tools run --logcat
