Android Android Tools Getting Started with Android Studio What is Gradle?

Why I can not open build.gradle?

Hi, everyone. I am learning the lesson of "What is gradle?". I am following the video and now clicking to open the "build.gradle". When I click it, the tab opened is named "app", but not "build.gradle". There are only a few lines of codes in "app". Haven't met this before, could someone help me? BTW, there is an error message shown in my android studio when I first time create the project and still shown in the console, and it says"URL: svn: E155021: E155021: This client is too old to work with the working copy at '/Users/xiejun' (format 31). You need to get a newer Subversion client. For more details, see http://subversion.apache.org/faq.html#working-copy-format-change". I don't know if it is related to my problem and for your reference. Thanks in advance! ^_^

I saw this as well, but I think this is just the way Android Studio names the tab. If you hover over the tab it will display the path of the build.gradle file in the tool-tip. The name of the tab is the part of your project where the specific build.gradle file lives (project, module, etc.)

I think your Apache/Subversion error is something different and I don't know anything beyond the documentation link in the error.

Good luck!

Edit: I'm using the current Android Studio 0.8.9. It looks like Ben is using an earlier version in the video.

It seems versions are coming quite fast. Just a few weeks ago I installed 0.8.6 as newest.

Version 1.0rc4 is out now! ;D
