Raspberry Pi is a tiny computer you can buy in the US for about $50.
But for a small business, a Raspberry PI can be used to create a mobile application.
For this tutorial, we’ll be building a web application using an Android emulator and a RaspberryPi.
We’ll learn how to use the emulator to run a simple app, and how to configure it for your own use.
This tutorial is part of the “Android Developer Series” series, which focuses on building apps for Android.
Free Download The Android emulator can be a bit complicated to set up, but with a little practice and some help from an experienced Android developer, you should be able to get it up and running.
In this tutorial we’ll use an emulator called RetroPie.
You can get the RetroPie source code on GitHub.
If you want to try it out yourself, install RetroPie on your computer, and start up the emulator.
Open the RetroPi Emulator app.
In the top-right corner, click the “File” menu.
Choose “Build Android Emulator.”
In the emulator window, select “Build the Emulator for Android.”
Enter the path to the Android emulator you just built in the command line.
Click “Start” to begin.
RetroPie will start up and display some information about your Android device.
In RetroPie, the Android Emulators page is located at the top.
On the left, you’ll see a menu of options for “Programs” and “Android SDKs.”
You can also choose to download the latest versions of the SDK.
When the Android SDK is installed, it’s stored in a folder called “SDK.”
On the right, you can choose to “Download Updates” to download new versions of Android.
Select “OK” to save your changes and continue.
When you’re finished, click “Finish” to close the emulator and reboot your device.
This is the emulator you’ll use to build your Android app.
Next, we need to download and install a Raspberry pi from the internet.
Open up RetroPie and navigate to the directory you created earlier.
We will use the directory “/opt/retropie/raspbian” for this tutorial.
On your Raspberry Pi, select the Raspberry Pi menu.
In that menu, click on the “Home” button to navigate to “Homebrew.”
You’ll see the RaspberryPi Homebrew page.
On this page, select Ubuntu 16.04 (raspi-config) and then select the “install from USB” option.
Choose the USB drive that’s included with your Raspberry PI and click “Install.”
When the installation is complete, click OK to close out of the Homebrew menu.
We can now launch RetroPie from our Android device using the RetroPython terminal application.
In our RetroPi application, open the emulator application.
Select the directory where we copied the Raspberry pi to earlier.
Select RetroPi.app, then click the Browse button.
You’ll be presented with a new page, “RetroPie.app.”
You will be asked to select the directory in which you installed RetroPie: “/opt/” and “/usr/local/retro/raspberrypi.”
Choose the correct location.
We are in the “/opt” directory.
We should be in the directory we just copied to.
Now, let’s open up RetroPython.
Open your RetroPi terminal application by pressing Ctrl+Shift+I on your keyboard.
On our example, we are in RetroPi, but we can also use the command:
