Capacitor uses the native IDE for each platform in order to provide required configuration, and to build, test, and deploy apps.
I found an article on this. I think it might valuable. But it is for cordova. It is applicable for capacitor too
Thank you so much. It really helpful
Sorry to bring up this thread. I am trying to build using Capacitor for more than 12 hours now. My last attempt was
$ ionic capacitor copy android && cd android && ./gradlew assembleDebug && cd ..
It looked all good until
Welcome to Gradle 5.6.4!
Here are the highlights of this release:

Could not determine the dependencies of task ‘:app:compileDebugJavaWithJavac’.
SDK location not found. Define location with an ANDROID_SDK_ROOT environment variable or by setting the sdk.dir path in your project’s local properties file at ‘/home/meen/PSD/android/local.properties’.

I do not know what do. I have tried a lot of things but nothing worked. I am not sure how to make Android Studio work with Ionic/Capacitor. After
add android , I tried opening the folder in Android Studio. It says detected framework, gradle etc. But won’t
Build. If possible, please help me out.
I am using Ubuntu 20.04.
I also face the same issue, have you find a solution?
No sir. I tried a few things but didn’t work
@pro1 @Aniee, Have you built any other project with android studio, specifically Native android Projects ? did it work? or is this a fresh installation? It seems like you need to define the ANDROID_SDK_ROOT path.
What is mean by cd . . ? Do I have to enter something there…??
cd .. is the command to change directories to the parent of the current directory. The “…” indicates the parent directory.
@Aniee try this: open (create if not exists) android/local.properties, and add:
For example mine says: sdk.dir=/home/matias/Downloads/android
The directory should have subdirectories like build-tools/, tools/, emulator/, platform-tools/, etc… i.e. the directory where you installed or unzipped the android sdk. Hope this helps.

ionic cap build android --no-open && cd android && ./gradlew assembleDebug && ./gradlew assembleRelease
**ionic capacitor copy android not working for me.
**if do you use powershell write gradlew without “./”
Thank you, It’s work for me as well
