Description

Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites. Gradle has been designed to support build automation across multiple languages and platforms including Java, Scala, Android, C/C++, and Groovy, and is closely integrated with development tools and continuous integration servers including Eclipse, IntelliJ, and Jenkins.

Gradle alternatives and similar libraries

Based on the "Build" category

  • Bazel

    9.6 10.0 L3 Gradle VS Bazel
    Build tool from Google that builds code quickly and reliably.
  • Buck

    A fast build system that encourages the creation of small, reusable modules over a variety of platforms and languages.
  • Apache Maven

    Declarative build and dependency management which favors convention over configuration. It might be preferable to Apache Ant which uses a rather procedural approach and can be difficult to maintain.

Downloading

You can download released versions and nightly build artifacts from: https://gradle.org/downloads

Installing from source

To create an install from the source tree you can run either of the following:

./gradlew install -Pgradle_installPath=/usr/local/gradle-source-build

This will create a minimal installation; just what's needed to run Gradle (i.e. no docs).

You can then build a Gradle based project with this installation:

/usr/local/gradle-source-build/bin/gradle Ā«some taskĀ»

To create a full installation (includes docs):

./gradlew installAll -Pgradle_installPath=/usr/local/gradle-source-build
