Use this page to configure the Gradle project settings.

Gradle user homeUse this field to specify the location of stored Gradle caches, downloaded files, and so on.

If Gradle location has been defined by the environment variables GRADLE_HOME or PATH, then CLion deduces this location, and suggests this path as the default value.

If the Gradle location has not been deduced from the environment variables, specify it manually, or click the Browse button, and select the desired directory. Note that the value entered in this field takes preference over the environment variables.

CLion also supports the custom Gradle location installed from the homebrew package manager.

Gradle projectsThis area contains the list of registered Gradle projects that are linked to your CLion project.
Download external annotations for dependenciesWhen this checkbox is selected, CLion downloads a file with a set of external annotations from the JetBrains public repository.

  • 'wrapper' task in Gradle build script: select this option to configure a Gradle wrapper according to the wrapper task configuration. It might be convenient if you prefer to control which Gradle version to use in the project.

    If you used the default Gradle wrapper option and then switched to the Gradle wrapper task configuration, changes you made in the task automatically update during the project import.

  • Specified location: select this option if you don't want to use the Gradle wrapper and prefer to manually download and use a specific Gradle version instead. Specify the location of your Gradle installation.
