ADB Plugin for Android Studio

Android Studio comes with many interesting plugins. Under the Plugins section of the Preferences dialog in Android Studio (for OSX) you can find some of them and you can browse for additional ones using the Browse repositories button.

On the Android Studio Plugin Repository page (or on GitHub) you will find all available plugins. Recently I have found a nice plugin for Android Studio (and Intellij IDEA) that could help you to speed up your daily Android development.

ADB Not Responding - Wait More or Kill adb or Restart

Does the line above looks familiar? To restart the ADB I always used the command prompt for that. Using this plugin created by Philippe Breault we could perform this and other tasks from within Android Studio.

In addition to restarting the ADB it can also clear the app data, uninstall an app or just kill it. After installing ADB Idea appears under the Tools, Android menu but as Philip suggests on GitHub you can use the Ctrl + Shift + A (For Windows Ctrl + Alt + Shift + A ) short cut.

Short cut for all

By the way, you can also use the Cmd + Shift + A short cut and type adb to look up adb commands or use this short cut to look up any command.


Well, what else can I say about it? It is a nice little tool. Thank you Philippe Breault for that !
