Installing Android SDK & NDK on OSX

First, get Homebrew if you haven’t already: http://brew.sh/

Run these commands in the terminal

brew install android-sdk
brew install android-ndk

Update Android tools by running in the terminal:

android update sdk --no-ui

Homebrew installs your Android SDK and NDK into /usr/local/Cellar/ subfolders based on which versions it installed, but luckily it also creates two symlinks that always point to the newest versions of each; /usr/local/opt/android-sdk and /usr/local/opt/android-ndk.

Lastly add those to your .bash_profile:

export ANDROID_HOME=/usr/local/opt/android-sdk
export ANDROID_NDK=/usr/local/opt/android-ndk
