Gradle Setup 🐘

This template is using Gradle Kotlin DSL as well as the Plugin DSL to setup the build.

Dependencies are centralized inside the [Dependencies.kt](buildSrc/src/main/java/Dependencies.kt) file in the buildSrc folder. This provides convenient auto-completion when writing your gradle files.

Static Analysis 🔍

This template is using ktlint with the ktlint-gradle plugin to format your code. To reformat all the source code as well as the buildscript you can run the ktlintFormat gradle task.

This template is also using detekt to analyze the source code, with the configuration that is stored in the [detekt.yml](config/detekt/detekt.yml) file (the file has been generated with the detektGenerateConfig task).

CI ⚙️

This template is using GitHub Actions as CI. You don't need to setup any external service and you should have a running CI once you start using this template.

There are currently the following workflows available:

  • [Validate Gradle Wrapper](.github/workflows/gradle-wrapper-validation.yml) - Will check that the gradle wrapper has a valid checksum
  • [Pre Merge Checks](.github/workflows/pre-merge.yaml) - Will run the build, check and publishToMavenLocal tasks.

Publishing 🚀

The template is setup to be ready to publish a library/artifact on a Maven Repository. If you're using JitPack, you don't need any further configuration and you can just configure the repo on JitPack. If you're using another repository (MavenCentral/JCenter/etc.), you need to specify the publishing coordinates.
