Android studio IDE for android applications development offers a wide range of tools, shortcuts and live templates to increase the productivity of the developers. Here I enlist some of those which would come handy and you would love it while you use it :
|Ctrl + P||To see parameters of underlying method.
When your cursor is on some method , you can see what parameters the method requires as input
|Ctrl + Shift + N or Command + Shift + O (mac)||You can search any file with its name|
|Ctrl+f4 or Command + W (Mac)||To close the current open file|
|Ctrl+alt+O||To Optimize Imports|
|Shift+Shift||To search every where in the project|
|Ctrl+Shift+f||To find in path|
|Alt + right / Alt + left||To switch tabs in the editor|
|F1||To quickly see the documentation of current class|
|Command + 1||Open Project View|
|Command+Shift+A||To find any action|
Live Templates :
Studio has some built-in templates created for you which makes your life a bit easier.
It also provides the power of creating custom templates to you also . Here I enlist some of predefined templates :
- fori + tab
it will print the for loop for you with using i as the iterator.
- logm + tab
it will print the log.d statement with the input parameters of the method printed
- logr + tab
it will print log.d statement with the return parameter of the method printed
- logt + tab
in class variables scope it will define a variable TAG with class name as the value for it
