Android SDK under command line environment

I have a dedicated server as a build machine running Ubuntu server edition. I want to run my Android builds and for doing that I need the android SDK.

As you all know in order to download the various packages you need GUI interface, so how do you install them if you use CLI only.

Do the following:

  1.  Download the android SDK from
  2. tar xvzf <tgz file>
  3. Add to your path …/<android_dir>/tools
  4. run ‘android update sdk -u’ and everything will be downloaded to your computer.
