This is a manual setup checklist that replaces those methods.

Instructions for exporting/importing (backup/restore) GPG keys

Every so often I have to restore my gpg keys and I'm never sure how best to do it. So, I've spent some time playing around with the various ways to export/import (backup/restore) keys.

Method 1

Backup the public and secret keyrings and trust database

cp ~/.gnupg/pubring.gpg /path/to/backups/
cp ~/.gnupg/secring.gpg /path/to/backups/

With the new theming in AppCompat, a lot of assets are tinted automatically for you via theme attributes. That has often led me to wonder "where the hell did this color come from?" You can replace your normal theme with this debug theme to help figure out the source of that color.
View themes-debug.xml
<!-- You can change the parent around to whatever you normally use -->
<style name="DebugColors" parent="Theme.AppCompat">
<!-- System colors -->

Android Studio Shortcuts (Mac)


  • Two of the most useful shortcuts utilize the Fn (function) keys. It is therefore recommended that you enable the "Use all F1, F2, etc. keys as standard function keys" option [System Preferences > Keyboard].
  • Be sure to enable the Mac OS X 10.5+ keymap in Android Studio [Preferences > Keymap].
  • A fairly complete shortcut list can be found here.
