Local ForgeGradle build dependency caching


Recommended Posts

Hey all, following up the thread referred to below, does somebody know an

elegant way to apply a local build dependency caching for the gradle build?



Reading the gradle documentation,

repositories { url = "file://my_cache_shadow_repo/" }

could do, but I would need some kind automatic selection,

because my mods are open source and I would like that

everyone can build after cloning without setting up a

special environment. That exceeds my experience ;)

Quickly FTR, my working approach for this is to use the possibility to globally override the gradle properties:

In build.gradle:


buildscript {
  repositories {
    maven { url = "${forge_maven_repository}" }
  dependencies {
    classpath "${forge_gradle_classpath}"

In gradle.properties:


forge_maven_repository=http://files.minecraftforge.net/maven  forge_gradle_classpath=net.minecraftforge.gradle:ForgeGradle:2.3-SNAPSHO


These are then changed to a "file://" location in a local GIT repository containing the downloaded files.

However, this might not yet be enough, as further resources appear to be loaded. More introspection needed here ;).

[is there a way to move this thread to the ForgeGradle sub forum? I accidentally posted this here]?
