Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-3445) Move Cordova-Android Build Setup to Gradle
Date Tue, 11 Mar 2014 08:22:46 GMT


SidneyS commented on CB-3445:

It depends on whether Cordova should cling to legacy software or current, future-oriented
environments. Google is heavily proponing Android Studio, and all newcomers are using Studio
despite the few bugs on canary versions.

I also do not see the build tool problem - ANT has far more troubles then just bundling a
gradle wrapper. Its self-contained, no need to set environment variables or other stuff.

>                 Key: CB-3445
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache Cordova
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Android
>            Reporter: Joe Bowser
>            Priority: Minor
> 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
> Moving to Gradle has numerous advantages, but will break scripts, so this is to be moved
in the post-3.0 timeframe.
