Subject [jira] [Created] (CB-9704) Apache Cordova 5 does not support using a custom nexus repository for android builds
Date Fri, 25 Sep 2015 03:13:04 GMT
Ajay Gupta created CB-9704:

             Summary: Apache Cordova 5 does not support using a custom nexus repository for
android builds
                 Key: CB-9704
             Project: Apache Cordova
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: CLI
            Reporter: Ajay Gupta

We are using AngularJS and Ionic for writing a mobile application supported both on IOS and
Android.  When we do "ionic build android --release", it creates a build.gradle file in both
platforms/android directory and platforms/android/CordovaLib directory.  Both of these files
point to mavenCentral() as the repository which tries to download artifacts directly from
the maven central repo (  We are trying to build our mobile
apps as part of a Jenkins build behind company proxy and would like to have gradle reach out
to our internal Maven nexus repository instead of reaching out to the central maven repository
directly.  Our internal Neux repository would then proxy everything to the maven central repository.

We cannot hand edit the build.gradle file as it is a generated file and so any custom changes
made to it would be lost in the next build.  Cordova 5 supports adding custom extensions using
build-extras.gradle file but it does not support overriding repositories.  

As a workaround, we have defined a pre-build Cordova hook to search replace mavenCentral()
references to our local maven repository before doing an android build.  It works but is a
unnecessary workaround and not a very clean solution.
