Gradle install and setup


How to install and setup Gradle?


  1. Download Gradle
  2. Unpack it to a directory
    $> unzip -d ~/programs
  3. Create environment variable GRADLE_HOME that points to the Gradle install directory.
    # In Linux it's best to add the following line to ~/.bashrc:
    export GRADLE_HOME=~/programs/gradle-2.4
  4. Add GRADLE_HOME/bin to the PATH variable
    export PATH="${PATH}":"${GRADLE_HOME}/bin"
  5. Reload system variables.


Running “gradle –version” in command line should give similar result:

$> gradle --version
