It would be great to have ONE single page describing a reliable recipe
for setting up a system for Android builds in v9. I suppose we'd need
one for macOS, Win, and Linux. It would need to be tech-edited for
completeness, to make sure steps very familiar to the author are not
glossed over for newcomers.
Y'all know how much I like LC, and how long I've been using it. But
somewhere in the v9 cycle I lost the ability to generate builds for
Android, and piecing a recipe together from various parts of lessons and
posts on this list has thus far failed to fix that for me.
If I'm having such difficulty, it seems safe to imagine a hundred others
have the same, and many aren't as hooked as I am so they just uninstall
LC and move on to anything with a more integrated build experience.
