Dockerfile for Android CI

My general usage (very up-to-date) Docker image for Android CI


  • Ubuntu 16.04, with wget, curl, zip, python, pip, awsclie, git, make, gcc (and other build-essential)
  • Java8
  • Platform tools 26.0.0
  • SDK Tools 26.0.2
  • Build Tools 26.0.0
  • SDK API 24, 25 and 26
  • Support Repository 47.0.0
  • Play Services and Firebase repository 41
  • And more (gcm, licensing, billing, apk exp., etc.).
  • /opt/tools/ script which can download and start an emulator.

Accepting licenses

Getting an error when building Android with this Docker image? Something like this:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred configuring project ':app'.
> You have not accepted the license agreements of the following SDK components:
  [Android SDK Platform 25, Android SDK Build-Tools 25.0.1].
  Before building your project, you need to accept the license agreements and complete the installation of the missing components using the Android Studio SDK Manager.
  Alternatively, to learn how to transfer the license agreements from one workstation to another, go to

You'll need to create licenses folder with license files under ${ANDROID_HOME}. Accept the licenses on you local machine
then create the same files inside the Docker image, using your CI script. Something like this:

echo -e "8933bad161af4178b1185d1a37fbf41ea5269c55\c" > ${ANDROID_HOME}/licenses/android-sdk-license
echo -e "79120722343a6f314e0719f863036c702b0e6b2a\n84831b9409646a918e30573bab4c9c91346d8abd\c" > ${ANDROID_HOME}/licenses/android-sdk-preview-license
echo -e "8403addf88ab4874007e1c1e80a0025bf2550a37\c" > ${ANDROID_HOME}/licenses/intel-android-sysimage-license

Also, due to a known bug, you'll need to run gradle twice. So:

./gradlew dependencies || true
./gradlew clean
