Check Gradle Dependencies with Give Me Gradle!

There are multiple ways of compiling an Android application. You can use one of a variety of IDEs such as Android Studio or Eclipse with ADT. You can also build it during the Android system compilation. Every method of compilation is different–maybe not exactly in terms of coding, but the build process as a whole.

Android Studio, for example, uses Gradle. Gradle is a project automation tool that builds upon the concepts of Apache Ant and Apache Maven and introduces a Groovy-based domain-specific language (DSL) instead of the more traditional XML form of declaring project configuration. You can check Gradle for commonly used artifacts and libraries. XDA Forum Member DaGr81 created a handy application called Give Me Gradle! that can show you the exact code on the screen of your phone. This is somewhat useful when you are planning to add new functions to your projects and keep your builds up to date.

You can search manually for artifacts or select them from a list. And after hitting the green button, a list is shown. The application should work on every smartphone with Android 4.0 and higher.

Do you use Android Studio to make your app development projects? Check Gradle and Maven dependencies on the go. Give me Gradle! will help you with this. Head over to the Give Me Gradle! application thread to get started.
