Size Analyzer

The Size Analyzer is a tool for developers to understand the size of their Android application.

How to build the size analyzer

The tool can be built using gradle. An executable jar can be built using the command below:

./gradlew :analyzer:executableJar

How to use the size analyzer

The executable jar can be run against either an Android Studio project or an Android App Bundle.

java -jar analyzer/build/libs/analyzer.jar check-bundle <path-to-aab>
java -jar analyzer/build/libs/analyzer.jar check-project <path-to-project-directory>

Android Studio Plugin

The Size Analyzer is also available in an Android Studio plugin format. This can be built with the buildPlugin task in gradle:

./gradlew :studio_plugin:buildPlugin

This will produce a JAR file that can be installed from the gear menu's 'Install Plugin from Disk...' option in the Plugins pane of Android Studio's Settings dialog.

Alternatively, it can be downloaded and installed from the Jetbrains plugin marketplace in Android Studio.

Once installed, you can invoke the Size Analyzer on the currently loaded project from the 'Analyze App Size...' menu item in the 'Analyze' menu in Android Studio.
