Suppressing Compression of Resources
By default, the Android Asset Packaging Tool (aapt)
compresses resources during packaging. However you can have resources of a certain type included in the
.apk file uncompressed
by changing the settings of the Android facet.
To suppress compressing resources of a certain type
- Select File | Project structure from the main menu.
- In the left-hand pane, select Modules, then in the central pane click the Android facet under the module with the resources to be packaged uncompressed.
- In the right-hand pane, switch to the Compiler tab.
In the Additional command line parameters text box, type
-0 <file extension for this type of resources>. As a result, all files with the specified extension will be excluded from compression.
