The last blog entry in the nbandroid blog (http://www.nbandroid.org) was the day before yesterday. It starts with the words "You can see new version of NBAndroid plugin on our auto-update center." How much more active than that can you get?

Hi Wade,
Thanks for the link - I will try to send this query to their mailing list!  
Let me ask a related dumb question: if NBAndroid isn't that active, is there 
another plugin or tool for NB to do Android development?  The Android web 
site where I got the SDK only had plugin/info for Eclipse.

Thanks again.

NB Android is its own open source project. See:
http://www.nbandroid.org/p/contacts.html

You should be able to find better help there though it doesn't look as active 
(last forum posts seem to be from September). I'm not sure who all is doing 
NB Android.

Sorry if this has an obvious answer:

I'm trying to get started with Android development.  Things started off easy enough - I was able to 
download/install the latest NBAndroid plugin into my NB (7.2, using JDK 1.6u37 on MacOSX).  When I 
subsequently clicked on Tools->Android SDK Manager, it asked for a path to the SDK.  Since I didn't 
have that, I downloaded the latest of that and then, since I didn't know what I was doing, followed the 
directions in the SDK read me and did "tools/android update sdk --no-ui" - which proceeded to 
download every Android version under the sun :-(  After all that was done, I restarted NB and went into 
Tools->Android SDK Manager again - giving it the directory into which the SDK and all its updates 
resided and, sure enough, the SDK Manager showed all the different Android platforms and add-ons, etc.  
All of them showed as "Installed".

But when I went to open a new Android Project, the screen tells me that a "Target 
Android Platform must be specified" but the list of available platforms is empty.  
There's a button that just gets me back to the Preferences->Miscellaneous where one 
specifies the location of the SDK.  Not much help there.

So I go back into the Tools->Android SDK Manager and uninstall every platform other 
than Android 4.2 (API 17).  But that doesn't seem to do anything - I still just see an 
empty list of platforms on the New->Project->Android App wizard page.

I'm missing something really simple, aren't I?  But what that is, I have no idea.  And the NB 
screens aren't helpful at all (oh, did I mention that nothing happens when I click on 
"Help" in New Project->Android Application"?)

Attached are screen shots of the relevant screens.  Thanks in advance for any 
help/info.

Tom

p.s. if someone could forward a mis-spelling to the developer who did "New Android Application" 
screen: the word "Platform" is misspelled  in the label "Target Platform".
