Needing 5 sizes of each image for an android app is annoying, so I did what any sane person would do. I wrote a python script that does all the hard work 😉
Available on github.com, it should work with python 2.7 and 3.x, once you have “Image” installed
- pip install Image
- place some images in the same folder as the script and rung it
- You will see output like below, followed by the folders being created with the images inside
Back to writing the apps..
So I’m currently learning all about Android application development. I’ve made an app before while experimenting but decided to go with the Udacity course so I would not run into any trial and error rage quit scenarios while learning.
So far most of the apps have been simple single screen affairs with a few buttons slowly introducing Java concepts along the way.
Part 4 however is where the multi-screen fun starts, realistically I can’t wait to get to info exchange with a back end server and maybe build my own backed service.
Next though I’m going to try Android Studio under Arch Linux ?
