I'm trying to use HoloColorPicker by Lars Werkman, now I'm not using Eclipse or the Android Studio, I'm doing everything via command line and advanced text editors (that's just how I like it). Now the problem I'm running into is HoloColorPicker uses Gradle, so it doesn't have a build.xml file, giving me this error when I try to build:

Invalid file: /HOMEFOLDER/DevTools/AndroidLibs/HoloColorPicker/build.xml


I used the `android update project` command to add the library to my project, so how do I either convert the Gradle project to a standard android proect, or get it to build the library with gradle instead of build.xml???

Any help is greately apprecieated, thanks.

Well, I think I figured it out, all I had to do was open a terminal in the folder of library project and run this:
android update lib-project --path . --target 1

Afterwards it created the appropriate files that were needed and it now compiles, of course I won't know for 100% certainty until I actually use some things from the library and get it to run.

Well, I've tested it and this did fix my issue, I was able to successfully import the library.
