Android SDK vs Atmosphere: What are the differences?
Android SDK: An SDK that provides you the API libraries and developer tools necessary to build, test, and debug apps for Android. Android provides a rich application framework that allows you to build innovative apps and games for mobile devices in a Java language environment; Atmosphere: Realtime Client Server Framework for the JVM, supporting WebSockets and Cross-Browser Fallbacks Support. The Atmosphere Framework contains client and server side components for building Asynchronous Web Applications. The majority of popular frameworks are either supporting Atmosphere or supported natively by the framework. The Atmosphere Framework supports all major Browsers and Servers.
Android SDK and Atmosphere can be categorized as "Frameworks (Full Stack)" tools.
"Android development" is the primary reason why developers consider Android SDK over the competitors, whereas "Cross-Browse" was stated as the key factor in picking Atmosphere.
Atmosphere is an open source tool with 3.34K GitHub stars and 720 GitHub forks. Here's a link to Atmosphere's open source repository on GitHub.

When we first built the ArifZefen app our focus was around validating our business assumptions and finding a good product fit. Once we got to a few thousand users, it became clear that we needed to make quality a priority and that meant we needed a reliable tool that will allow us to monitor the health of our app. Crashlytics (now Fabric by Twitter ) was on a short list of solutions we closely explored and we were very happy with its ease of integration and the consistency it brought to our Cocoa Touch (iOS) and Android SDK crash monitoring.
Its daily pulse emails were also super informative in giving us a good sense of how each platform was doing in terms of crash-free and new users, daily actives and other relevant session data. These emails also surfaced any anomalies in daily trends, alerting us of any reason for concern. Overall, Crashlytics was instrumental in allowing us to quickly discover and diagnose crashes and it is one of the main reasons we were able to keep our app store ratings reasonable high. But perhaps even more importantly, we were able to set a high quality bar for our users that absent Crashlytics would have been difficult to maintain.
So we very, very early on, we were iOS only, then we thought, well we’re missing out on half of the market. We need to add Android. So we had a friend of ours start working on the Android app, and I had to build the API for him, but I was having a really hard time doing that because I didn’t know what he needed exactly, so I built the first version of the web store over the weekend because I wanted to have a client to consume myself for the API I was building.
Self taught : acquired knowledge or skill on one's own initiative. Unity and app compatible porposes : software development kit that enables developers to create applications for the Android platform.
The Android SDK is the key-component of all Android-based development and had to be included in this stack for sure. We work with the SDK through IntelliJ IDEA and the command-line.
last time i used the android sdk was converting the tiktok app to ios. what a mess it was back then. the developer nature of the sdk was apparent vs apples offering.
