Vagabond – Update

Aside from the getandroidsdkdl script that I was offering for people who wanted to get started with Android Development on Linux, another cool tool I wanted to throw out there was a script I call “Vagabond” which is a Vagrant deployable which automatically configures a development environment that you can use for Android Development on your Linux computer.
