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

  1. Select File | Project structure from the main menu.
  2. 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.
  3. In the right-hand pane, switch to the Compiler tab.
  4. 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.
