comment I have 16GB RAM. Do I need 32GB swap?
I don't believe the answer needs changing. As a test (and as a result of negative feedback I've had about this answer) I ran my 16GB Thinkpad X220 with no swap for a while. On multiple occasions memory pressure caused the kswapd process to go mental (looking for swap) and made the machine completely IO starved and completely unusable while thrashing. Making a small amount of swap made this issue disappear completely. So I still stand by the response that "no swap" isn't always the right answer, no matter how much RAM you have.

comment Having generated a webapp with the generator, how do I test my click on the device?
Sounds like the "adb push" step failed. Check the click file is on the device using "adb shell" then look in /tmp
