IntelliJ Idea / Android Studio Tip of the Day

I've been writing a lot of Javadocs lately and wondered if there was a quick and easy way to generate the Javadoc notation to link to another class or method.

Short answer: there's not?
Long answer: it's fairly easy to add it yourself using "Live Templates"

The link shows you how to add a Live Template to link to other classes in a Javadoc.  You can replicate the same behavior for methods with a few changes:

1.  Make the template text be:  {@link#$METHOD$}
2.  Change the context to be: methodName()

Pretty awesome.

Wow! This looks like an awesome tool to detect memory leaks. Square saving the day again. #androiddev
Nobody likes OutOfMemoryError crashes. In Square Register, we draw the customer's signature on a bitmap cache. This bitmap is the size of the device's screen, and we had a significant number of out of memory (OOM) crashes when creating it. We tried a few approaches, none of which solved the ...

Weird. I already have 5.1 installed on this 2013 Nexus 7, yet it's prompting me to accept an OTA for it.

What could possibly go wrong?

I updated yesterday too, but I could have sworn mine said 5.1.1.  Maybe I dreamt it :)

TIL I learned about Activity.getLayoutInflater()
 
Dem LayoutInflaters. 
LayoutInflater is a fundamental component in Android. You must use it all the time to turn xml files into view hierarchies. There are several ways to get an instance of one, but it's not always clear why you should prefer one way over another.

We were working hard, Genymotion v2.5 is now on the launch pad! This new version, planned for mid-june will be dedicated to Continuous Integration for Android application development:
- A full command line tool
- A Gradle Plugin

Run all your automatic tests on fresh new devices you defined directly from your build.gradle or from the command line. Start a device, stop it, delete it, and more! Do whatever you want through your favorite script tools!

That's pretty exciting!  More and more, I'm thinking of buying a personal license. If only to support what they're doing.

Unfortunately it seems to break if you have your terminal set to xterm-color.
 
Today, we launched PathPicker that lets you easily pick files from a command-line output. You can then open these files in your favorite editor or run any arbitrary command. http://facebook.github.io/PathPicker/

Check out the project: https://github.com/facebook/pathpicker/
PathPicker is a command line tool to easily select files from piped input.

Quick, decent price - breakfast burritos are a good size, but kind of bland. I'll go back another time to try other items.

Was attending an event in Mountain View and all of the neighboring hotels were booked. This one was a little far away but had decent reviews. Hotel staff were very friendly and the room looked clean. The walls are thin as paper, could hear everything from the rooms around me. Plan on wearing ear plugs at night.
