Developing android apps without android studio. VIM IDE

I wonder if it is possible to develop android apps on linux without android studio? I prefer vim instead. I have already installed android sdk, and wanted to compile, and then run this kind of applications. I heard that its possible because sdk implements some kind of virtual machine that is able to simulate android environment. Have you got any ideas how to do this ?

How to prevent brief audio cut-outs when using sleep aid apps

When attempting to use an app like Relaxio or Sleepo to drown out background noises when sleeping, I am frequently awoken by the sound cutting out for a fraction of a second. This occurs roughly every 30-90 minutes on average and largely defeats the purpose of using the app in this manner.

Reviews of the apps in question indicate that such problems are very rare, yet I am experiencing this issue on both a Samsung Galaxy S4 and a Samsung Galaxy S7.

What measures can I take (not excluding rooting the phone) to make these apps work properly?

How to make new files in Downloads folder visible to all apps?

In Android Nougat, when I use Samsung’s File Manager to move an apk file into the Downloads folder, it then appears – within File Manager – in the Downloads folder (as expected).

When I try to access that file from other apps, such as VirusTotal, the file does not appear in the Downloads folder.

It’s almost like a re-indexing needs to take place so that other apps recognize the file is located in the Downloads folder.

Why is this, and how do I get the file to be recognized universally in the Downloads folder?

What is the right design for UI apps backed by Cloud services like AWS

I am looking for some general architectural guidance about designing good cloud apps, primarily using AWS. For the sake of argument, lets say it’s a single page app, written in JS, hitting a couple of services like S3 and maybe some Lambda functions that read/write to a DynamoDB.

Option 1 – Make calls directly using AWS SDK So, this seems to be how the documentation is written. Your app would auth the user using Cognito, exchange for the tokens, then connect to the services directly.

Benefits here: Code is in the UI, so less moving parts. Cognito seems geared towards this type of dev…otherwise your server parts would have to cache the tokens or you’d somehow have to pass them around from the client. It also seems like less cost since you wouldn’t be paying for an “intermediary” service to bounce calls off of.

Cons: Well, your code is all in the UI, making your UI bloated. It feels like too much business logic would be in the client, which feels wrong.

Option 2 – Intermediary services Basically you would write some service, be it a Lambda function or an EC2 microservice or the like, to “bounce” the calls off of.

Benefits here: Well, you would have some additional level of control. Also, these intermediaries could house most, if not all, of the business logic.

Cons: Well, the biggest one is cost as you would now have to host a bunch of extra “things” to service your calls. Also, for the most part, it would seem like most of your intermediary services would be pass-through, so where is the benefit?

App that blocks sound notifications of SPECIFIED APPS at SPECIFIED TIMES

At the moment I use an app called Nights Keeper that automatically blocks ALL sound notifications for me during the time I sleep.

The problem is I would like to have most sound notifications (calls, SMS messages, E-mails…) automatically blocked during the time I sleep while some other ones would remain intact (so for example I wouldn’t hear if somebody called me or sent an email to me, but I would hear if somebody messaged me on WhatsApp).

Is there an app that can do this?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

Is there an easy way to remove built-in apps on macOS Mojave?

In the past I was able to do sudo rm -rf /Applications/<app name>. The following resources indicate that this will no longer work without dealing with System Integration Protection (SIP):

  • How delete an application that is bundled with macOS?
  • https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/976402-how-to-remove-defaultbundled-apps-in-macos-mojave/

The motivation is that I am not motivated to accept updates for apps that I do not expect to use within the foreseeable future.

Is there an easy way to remove the built-in apps that I do not wish to update?

Unable to install apps from Windows 10 Store

I’m unable to install/ update/ repair any app from Win10 Store. I couldn’t find any solutions, hence posting here.

This keeps happening despite repeatedly resetting windows. Once I reset my PC, Store seems to work for about 1~2 days and then starts showing the following error msg: Error msg while installing any app through Win10 Store

I followed what Microsoft suggested:

  1. reset windows 10 Store app through cmd and gui [both failed :(]
  2. almost every link suggested by google( https://www.google.com/search?q=windows+10+store+not+working&oq=windows+10+store )
  3. Also contacted Microsoft Support as last resort but to no avail.

Lastly, I thought this was because of my University’s restrictions on Win 10 education, however, other PCs & laptops [with same version of OS] don’t seem to have this problem.

It is able to update Windows apps like Microsoft office 360 and other system apps distributed through Win10 Store.

Has anyone else faced this problem before in any dist. of Windows 10? Did you find any solutions?

PC config details:

Alienware Aurora R7 Win10 Education V1809
