Issue while building Wordpress for mobile in Android Studio

  1. I've downloaded the source files from Github in the following link : https://github.com/wordpress-mobile/WordPress-Android .
    I followed the steps mentioned there and copied gradle.properties file and when I'm trying to run the file the first time it gives me the following Error :

    Invalid VCS root mapping
    
    The directory ~/Deskto…Press-Android-develop is registered as a Git root, but no Git repositories were found there.
    
    Configure...

    How do I Configure this or What to do for Configuring?

    Need help with the compilation part.

    Thanks

  2. Hi!

    Looking at the name of the folder, I guess you downloaded it as .zip file from GitHub. This way, you need to manually setup git to the repository and that can be tricky.

    I think it'd be easier if you clone the repository using git. This way everything should be set up and you should be able to open it in AS with ease.

    Let me know if you need more help with this.
