you can't.

in typical Google being evil fashion, using their central authority on Android they now discontinued android sdk and made the sdk a piece of android studio. for no reason other than forcing everyone to beta test their "version 3" (ha) studio. so much so that you now have to download the whole studio, and pick the sdk from within it. there are still some ways to find the sdk directly, but they are going away.

I'm not aware of plans to force users to download sdk only through Android Studio. You can find download links to the sdk at the bottom of: https://developer.android.com/studio/index.html

disclosure: I work on the Android Studio team.

Egg, meet face.

Yes, but now it's CLI only. It used to have GUI.

Not saying it is forbidden. But everywhere that google used to say "download the android SDK" now says, for no good reason, "download Android Studio".

Why does flutter tells to download android studio, open it, run the sdk downloader, close it forever and move to another IDE?
