Gradle settings

Settings | Build, Execution, Deployment | Gradle

Use this page to configure the Gradle project settings.



Gradle user home

Use this field to specify the location for Gradle to store its global configuration properties, initialization scripts, caches, log files, and so on. For more detailed information, see Gradle documentation.

The default is set to $USER_HOME/.gradle. It can be overridden in one of the following ways:

  • You can set the GRADLE_USER_HOME environment variable (for example, %APPDATA%\.gradle). For more information, refer to Gradle documentation. The variable's value is picked up automatically. The new path is reflected in the field.

  • You can specify the location manually: type the location in the path or click the Browse button and in the dialog that opens, select the needed directory.

If the Gradle location is set in Use Gradle from with the Specified location option and its path is defined in the environment variable GRADLE_HOME or PATH, AppCode deduces this location and suggests its path as the default value.

AppCode also supports the custom Gradle location installed from the Homebrew package manager.

Gradle projects

Download external annotations for dependencies

When this checkbox is selected, AppCode downloads a file with a set of external annotations from the JetBrains public repository.

Build and run

Use this section to specify what AppCode should use when you run tests, build, or run tasks in the selected linked project.

Use Gradle from

Use this list to configure a Gradle version for your project.

You can select one of the following options:

  • '' file: this is a recommended default option that uses Gradle wrapper.

    In this case you delegate the update of Gradle versions to Gradle and get an automatic Gradle download for the build. This option also lets you build with a precise Gradle version. The Gradle version is saved in the file in the gradle directory of your project and helps you eliminate any Gradle version problems.

  • '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.

Gradle JVM

Use this field to specify the JVM under which AppCode will run Gradle when you import the specified Gradle project and when you execute its tasks. The default is set to your project JDK.
