How to make Android apps in PC with low Ram and processor?

Android Studio is required to make Android apps in PC. It's minimum requirement is 8GB Ram. My PC only has 4GB RAM. What to do? 😢 React-native and flutter can also be used. Unfortunately, they also requires Android Studio as a emulator as it has features like hot reload and many more.... How to code Android apps then? 🙁😟

Visual Studio cites that Xamarin needs only 2GB of RAM for it to function. So it's a no-brainer - Xamarin, of course! Xamarin has the massive benefit of being multi-platform when compared to Android Studio. Xamarin IS one of the most popular cross-platform development tools, and is used by MANY from around the world. There are 1.4 million developers who are using it right now! Apple says that there are at least over one billion people who use actively use iOS. If you are planning to create an app for Android, think about how many people you'll lose? One billion people won't even know about your app if you use Android Studio. Xamarin helps broaden your audience. Go with Xamarin. //How would you install it? Install Visual Studio 2019 (or any other version which shall suit your needs) and install the 'Xamarin' pack. If you have no experience, look at some tutorials. Before using Xamarin, learn C#. C# is the language in which you will code applications in Xamarin.


Chica🌼 Thank. I'll try Quora ideas. If it works, I'll inform you.


Niral I'm a programmer. So, That was a bad idea.


DIY Maker Maybe your computer processor is better. It crashes on my laptop. Which operating system do you have?


Check this along with the related questions https://www.quora.com/I-installed-Android-Studio-in-my-system-but-it-needs-8GB-RAM-Can-I-develop-Android-apps-with-4GB-RAM-with-other-software Hope it helps✨😁


Niral, have you ever thought for a moment who made your "what-you-call-'em" before releiving you of coding? 😂 The programmers around here (for example:Space [Most Of Us Don't Have Eyes!😇]ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ )are that kind of people... We stay in just a different level 😄💪 And btw, I was upset with 3GB ram... 4GB sounds cool to me 👍😂 Android studio will work fine...


Use flutter or react native. I recommend flutter if you have no knowledge about react or any framework J's. Flutter use the Google baked language dart.


Space [#TheUniverseIsMistake]ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ you can use VsCode and flutter like IDE.... with android studio , jdk and all you need , installed , using a REAL device connected ( as i do) . it’s the same, hot reload works on real device too! i use an old laptop from 2009!


React native does not necessarily need Android Studio as a emulator, you can install Genymotion as emulator. Or you can develop react native app directly from online website snack.expo.io, no need to install any software. You can even develop React Native apps (Android and iPhone apps) directly from mobile phone via snack.expo.io


Flutter dosen't require Android Studio or Emulators. They are just optionals. Try Flutter or React Native. Using Native Java to write Android apps in this time makes no sense to me.


Good Question, I have PC without Performance.


buy Android Studio..... and install phoenix os on your system.... in this way you can build apps on windows and test them on phoenix.... Well I am not recommending Blue stacks because it might prove way too heavy for your system... 😉


As far as using android studio is concerned, it will function properly, it will take some time for the gradle build to complete and a few seconds glitch will be there before android studio starts auto suggestions


Lorenzo Busolini You can install mac os on vm


I run android studio smoothly on my 2gb ram laptop Bro you have 4 GB you will have no problem


Space [#TheUniverseIsMistake]ㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤㅤ Eclipse with latest adt will also work


Do you need use USB debugger and not emulator, and use Eclipse IDE to edit project, of course, In Eclipse do you should install plugin to develop Android app. The emulation require Hardware Acceleration and so much RAM to deploy emulator.


one more problem is , maybe off topic, but always connected to flutter and development with android studio and so on.... how to develop and use the possibility to export app for IOS if i have no Mac???? sure should be a solution...


You can use React Native with Expo, which does not require Android Studio at all. www.expo.io


Use a js framework like react native, ionic or anything else and a simple emulator like GenyMotion. (It requires 2GB RAM)
