Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (CB-3445) Move Cordova-Android Build Setup to Gradle
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2014 08:02:48 GMT

---------------------------------------------------------

I don't believe that Google is officially moving away from Eclipse just yet.  Android Studio
isn't even at 1.0 yet, and while I'm not a huge fan of Eclipse, I consider IntelliJ's flow
to be MUCH, MUCH worse.  Every version of Android Studio that I've tried managed to totally
screw up my project, and when talking to other Android devs, they say the same thing.  It's
impossible to get a straight and consistent answer out of Android devs about any editor or
tools. The move from JARs to libraries was partly done because of Android Studio, and we've
had Cordova projects build in Android studio.  That being said, I don't feel that Android
Studio is stable enough or useful enough that it is worth my time to work on currently.

This is definitely an area where IntelliJ fans who like how Android Studio works can run with
this.

> Currently we're using ant for our setup, and our setup can break every time that the
Android SDK updates and change its build.xml.  However, the Android Team has created Gradle
to be more robust such that it doesn't have the same problems as ant-based scripts.
> This also has the advantage of using Android Studio for development instead of Eclipse,
and the ability for us to bundle resources, which is something we haven't been able to do
before.
> Moving to Gradle has numerous advantages, but will break scripts, so this is to be moved
in the post-3.0 timeframe.
