motion-gradle

motion-gradle allows RubyMotion projects to integrate with Gradle to manage your dependencies.

Installation

You need to have gradle installed:

$ brew install gradle

And the gem installed:

$ [sudo] gem install motion-gradle

Or if you use Bundler:

gem 'motion-gradle'

You also need to install Extras/Android Support Repository and Extras/Google Repository with the Android SDK Manager gui.

android-sdk-manager

Setup

Edit the Rakefile of your RubyMotion project and add the following require lines:

 require 'rubygems'
 require 'motion-gradle'

Dependencies

From version 1.1.0 you can use the same gradle dependency string that Java users use.

  Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
    # ...
    app.gradle do
      dependency 'net.sf.ehcache:ehcache:2.9.0'
      dependency 'com.joanzapata.pdfview:android-pdfview:[email protected]'
      dependency 'com.danikula:videocache:2.3.1' do
        exclude module: 'android', group: 'com.google.android'
      end
    end
  end

Configuration

If the gradle command is not found in your PATH, you can configure it:

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  # ...
  app.gradle.path = '/some/path/gradle'
end

Repositories :

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  # ...
  app.gradle do
    repository 'https://bintray.com/bintray/jcenter'
    repository 'http://dl.bintray.com/austintaylor/gradle'
  end
end

Java libraries

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  # ...
  app.gradle do
    library 'mylib', path: '/Users/joffreyjaffeux/Projects/mylib'
   end
end

If relative path is used it's relative to your Rakefile, if you don't specify a path it will search in your_app/my_lib.

Plugins

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  # ...
  app.gradle do
    plugin 'com.google.gms.google-services'
   end
end

Classpaths

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  # ...
  app.gradle do
    classpath 'com.google.gms:google-services:1.3.0-beta1'
  end
end

Aidl

Motion::Project::App.setup do |app|
  # ...
  app.gradle do
    aidl 'com.android.vending.billing', './vendor/IInAppBillingService.aidl'
  end
end

Tasks

To tell motion-gradle to download your dependencies, run the following rake task:

$ [bundle exec] rake gradle:install

After a rake clean:all you will need to run the install task agin.

That’s all.
