Do you think we are missing an alternative of dryrun or a related project?

Add another 'Mobile Development' Gem


<!-- --> dryrun Try any android library hosted online directly from the command line


gem install dryrun


dryrun https://github.com/cesarferreira/android-helloworld

Wait a few seconds and the app is now opened on your phone :smiley:

$ dryrun -h
Usage: dryrun GIT_URL [OPTIONS]

    -m, --module MODULE_NAME         Custom module to run
    -b, --branch BRANCH_NAME         Checkout custom branch to run
    -f, --flavour FLAVOUR            Custom flavour (e.g. dev, qa, prod)
    -p, --path PATH                  Custom path to android project
    -t, --tag TAG                    Checkout tag/commit hash to clone (e.g. "v0.4.5", "6f7dd4b")
    -c, --cleanup                    Clean the temporary folder before cloning the project
    -w, --wipe                       Wipe the temporary dryrun folder
    -h, --help                       Displays help
    -v, --version                    Displays the version
    -a, --android-test               Execute android tests

Alternative scenario (if you don't use dryrun)

  1. Find the github's repository url
  2. Click the download zip
  3. Extract the zip file
  4. Open Android Studio
  5. Import the project you just downloaded
  6. Sync gradle
  7. Run the project
  8. Choose the device you want to run
  9. Test all you want
  10. Delete the project folder and the zip file when you don't want it anymore


  • Private repos can be tested too :smiley: $ dryrun [email protected]:cesarferreira/android-helloworld.git
  • No need to cleanup after you test the library.
  • No need to wait for Android Studio to load.


Be aware that ANDROID_HOME needs to be set with the adb path:

  • MAC -> ANDROID_HOME=/usr/local/opt/android-sdk
  • Linux -> ANDROID_HOME=/usr/local/opt/android-sdk
  • Windows -> ANDROID_HOME="...sdk" In windows this ANDROID_HOME is not automatically created, see more in here

Additionally, on windows in order to use git commands, the following path should be on the environment variable

  • ...\Git\cmd
