Overall Satisfaction with Gradle
Gradle is being used across the company for the development of Android applications. In the recent times, Gradle has become the standard of development and delivery of Android applications. It helps us in creating different flavors of the build with various parameters. This helps us release multiple versions to different sets of users.
Without the use of Gradle, we have done direct integration with the APIs. This has not worked very well in the case of Android as there are a lot of packaging related actions that Gradle directly takes as part of the plugin. This decision to use Gradle was an easy one.
Gradle has been an excellent tool for Android development. It has helped us create multiple versions of the app for different environments. It also takes care of all the packaging needs in the background without having to write all the code related to that. It is a no brainer to use Gradle with Android applications.
