Subject [GitHub] cordova-android issue #396: CB-12677: (android) added option for explicitly ...

Github user russaa commented on the issue:

    https://github.com/apache/cordova-android/pull/396
  
    @infil00p I was not aware of this patch (I believe it is CB-12065 #387).
    
    I guess it would solve the issue for Windows right now -- but does not address the PATH
problem (for Windows) in future versions of `cordova-android`, when `gradle` becomes a requirement.
    
    So in view of this future change, I would argue for the (additional) use of env variables
(i.e. offer users to specify an env variable), because
     * it's basically platform independent, in difference to #387, which is fully automatic,
but only works on Windows -- e.g. with env variables, if you have `gradle` and Android Studio
installed on a *nix system, you can configure Cordova to use Android Studio's `gradle` quite
easily
     * it's a low maintenance mechanism (i.e. implementation requires mostly no adjustments,
when software paths/structures change), since users are responsible for providing the correct
path
    
    So I would very much like to have the option, to specify the `gradle` location via an
env variable in the future (i.e. when `gradle` will be declared a requirement), instead of
having to install `gradle` separately, and put it into the PATH variable.
