I have a big problem with android studio. Now I'm working on a project and I have to pair the repository from github to android studio.

The connection and the clone of the folder went well. I can't display all the files and folders from the tab on the left side enter image description here

It says "Nothing to show" although I should see the file listing. How can I get it back?

  • it seems to be that AS doesn't import your project properly – piotrek1543 Jan 25 '16 at 21:59
  • delete your project, clone it into the other folder, open Android Studio, then New -> Import Project it should ask you about Gradle ;-) – piotrek1543 Jan 25 '16 at 22:03
  • @piotrek1543 I need to import from github, all the procedure of import went everytime well..the problem is after.. – Giovanni Giampaolo Jan 25 '16 at 22:13
  • @piotrek1543 Also if I download the zip of the all repository it give to me the same problem. – Giovanni Giampaolo Jan 25 '16 at 22:14
  • may I see this github repository? I said clone it to directory - do not import it directly form ANdroid Studio - see your imported project is not configured – piotrek1543 Jan 25 '16 at 22:44

I had the same issue, That the Android Project view is empty.

What i did was clicked on the Gradle menu option on the right side in Android Studio and clicked the Refresh button there, after the Android view looks correct.

  • It was a problem with iml file check also the workspace.iml and the Android manifest – Giovanni Giampaolo Feb 19 '16 at 23:49

Go to File -> Close Project, and next select "Import project" not "Open project".

Sync Project with Gradle files.

There is a useful shortcut Ctrl + Shift + A, after which a window appears and you can type some text like "sync" in there and it will find that command Sync Project with Gradle Files. Just execute the command.
