Android Studio: Speed up tweaks

this is some tweaks for Android Studio and Gradle Build system to make them perform more faster

1. Android Studio Tweaks

-Launch: Notepad++ as administrator
-Open: C:\Program Files\Android\Android Studio\bin\studio64.exe.vmoptions

There are a lot of parameters, but we are interested in memory-related parameters:
-Xms: Specifies the initial size, in bytes, of the memory allocation pool.
-Xmx: Specifies the maximum size, in bytes, of the memory allocation pool.
-XX:MaxPermSize: Size of the Permanent Generation.
-XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize: Reserved code cache size

Now, I’m using the following values:
-Xms1024m
-Xmx2048m
-XX:MaxPermSize=1024m
-XX:ReservedCodeCacheSize=512m

 

2. Gradle

Gradle is the new build system used in Android Studio
Now, we will configure the global settings of Gradle:

  • Goto: C:\Users\<UserName>\.gradle
    make a new file called “gradle.properties”
  • Add the following lines to the file:
    org.gradle.parallel=true
    org.gradle.daemon=true
  • Launch Android Studio and goto File -> Settings -> Gradle then enable “Offline work”
  • Restart Android Studio and check if there is any Speed Improvement.

 

Happy Development 🙂
