How To Setup Vagrant Android/phonegap Build Env

this is a brain dump of something I did and I want documented somewhere.

first install vagrant, I won't go over it.

then do:

vagrant init

then edit the generated Vagrant file, I changed this:

# use ubuntu trusty = "ubuntu/trusty64"

# 1GB or ram
config.vm.provider "virtualbox" do |vb|
    vb.memory = "1024"

# provision all the needed packages, I'm using it to build a phonegap app
# that's why I install all the npm stuff
config.vm.provision "shell", inline: <<-SHELL
  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get install -y ant lib32ncurses5 lib32stdc++6 lib32z1 npm build-essential git nodejs-legacy openjdk-7-jdk
  sudo npm install -g "phonegap@3.5.0-0.21.14" bower grunt-cli


vagrant up
vagrant ssh

inside the vm:

tar -xzf android-sdk_r24.0.2-linux.tgz

echo "export PATH=\$PATH:\$HOME/android-sdk-linux/tools:\$HOME/android-sdk-linux/platform-tools:\$HOME/android-sdk-linux/build-tools/19.1.0" >> $HOME/.bashrc

android update sdk -a --no-ui --filter "platform-tools"
android update sdk -a --no-ui --filter "android-19"
android update sdk -a --no-ui --filter "sys-img-armeabi-v7a-android-19"
android update sdk -a --no-ui --filter "build-tools-19.1.0"
android create avd --name myandroid -t "android-19"

I installed the version 19 of the sdk because of project requirements, feel free to install something more up to date, to see what you can install you can run:

android list sdk --extended
