How To Open an Existing project in Android Studio


All the questions dealing with this are now outdated. I am simply trying to open an existing Android Studio project.
I have cloned a repository for a project from
I have all the files, I choose “Open an existing android studio project” and then choose the “Material” folder which is the root directory of the project. When the project loads, it is called “gradle” and there are no files showing in the project frame.
I am using the latest version of android studio and the latest build tools as of 19 Dec 2014.
How do I import a project?


From the Android Studio welcome screen, try “Import Non-Android Studio project”. It sounds like exactly what wouldn’t work, but it does.
