gradle - A powerful build system for the JVM
gradle [option...] [task...]
-?, -h, --help
Shows a help message.
Do not rebuild project dependencies.
--all Shows additional detail in the task listing. See Section 4.6.2 of "Listing tasks".
Specifies the build file. See Section 4.5, "Selecting which build to execute".
Specifies the settings file.
Specifies which type of console output to generate.
Set to plain to generate plain text only. This option disables all color and other rich
output in the console output.
Set to auto (the default) to enable color and other rich output in the console output when
the build process is attached to a console, or to generate plain text only when not
attached to a console.
Set to rich to enable color and other rich output in the console output, regardless of
whether the build process is not attached to a console. When not attached to a console,
the build output will use ANSI control characters to generate the rich output.
Continues task execution after a task failure.
Only relevant projects are configured in this build run. This means faster builds
for large multi-projects. See Section 126.96.36.199, "Configuration on demand".
Sets a system property of the JVM, for example -Dmyprop=myvalue. See Section 11.2,
"Gradle properties and system properties".
Log in debug mode (includes normal stacktrace). See Chapter 22, "Logging".
Specifies the Gradle user home directory. The default is the .gradle directory in
the user's home directory.
--gui Launches the Gradle GUI. See Chapter 10, "Using the Gradle Graphical User
Specifies an initialization script. See Chapter 42, "Initialization Scripts".
Set log level to info. See Chapter 22, "Logging".
Runs the build with all task actions disabled. See Section 4.7, "Dry Run".
Specifies that the build should operate without accessing network resources. See
Section 23.9.2, "Command line options to override caching".
Sets a project property of the root project, for example -Pmyprop=myvalue. See
Section 11.2, "Gradle properties and system properties".
Specifies the start directory for Gradle. Defaults to current directory. See
Section 4.5, "Selecting which build to execute".
Build projects in parallel. Gradle will attempt to determine the optimal number of
executor threads to use. This option should only be used with decoupled projects
(see Section 24.9, "Decoupled Projects").
Sets the maximum number of workers that Gradle may use. For example
--max-workers=3. The default is the number of processors. This option replaces
--parallel-threads when used in conjunction with --parallel.
Profiles build execution time and generates a report in the
buildDir/reports/profile directory. See Section 4.6.8, "Profiling a build".
Specifies the project-specific cache directory. Default value is .gradle in the
root project directory.
Log errors only. See Chapter 22, "Logging".
Forces scripts to be recompiled, bypassing caching.
Refresh the state of dependencies. See Section 23.9.2, "Command line options to
Specifies that any task optimization is ignored.
Print out the full (very verbose) stacktrace for any exceptions. See Chapter 22,
Print out the stacktrace also for user exceptions (e.g. compile error). See
Chapter 22, "Logging".
-t, --continuous (incubating)
Enables continuous building - Gradle will automatically re-run when changes are
Don't search in parent directories for a settings.gradle file.
Prints version info.
Specifies a task to be excluded from execution. See Section 4.2, "Excluding
The above information is printed to the console when you execute gradle -h.
Do not use color in the console output. This option has been replaced by the
--console plain option.
Build projects in parallel, using the specified number of executor threads. For
example --parallel-threads=3. This option should only be used with decoupled
projects (see Section 24.9, "Decoupled Projects"). This option has been replaced
The Chapter 6, "The Gradle Daemon" contains more information about the daemon. For
example it includes information how to turn on the daemon by default so that you can avoid
using --daemon all the time.
Uses the Gradle daemon to run the build. Starts the daemon if not running or
existing daemon busy. Chapter 6, "The Gradle Daemon" contains more detailed
information when new daemon processes are started.
Starts the Gradle daemon in the foreground. Useful for debugging or
troubleshooting because you can easily monitor the build execution.
Do not use the Gradle daemon to run the build. Useful occasionally if you have
configured Gradle to always run with the daemon by default.
--stop Stops the Gradle daemon if it is running. You can only stop daemons that were
started with the Gradle version you use when running --stop.
The following system properties are available for the gradle command. Note that
command-line options take precedence over system properties.
Specifies the Gradle user home directory.
The Section 11.1, "Configuring the build environment via gradle.properties" contains
specific information about Gradle configuration available via system properties.
The following environment variables are available for the gradle command. Note that
command-line options and system properties take precedence over environment variables.
Specifies command-line arguments to use to start the JVM. This can be useful for
setting the system properties to use for running Gradle. For example you could set
GRADLE_OPTS="-Dorg.gradle.daemon=true" to use the Gradle daemon without needing to
use the --daemon option every time you run Gradle. Section 11.1, "Configuring the
build environment via gradle.properties" contains more information about ways of
configuring the daemon without using environmental variables, e.g. in more
maintainable and explicit way.
Specifies the Gradle user home directory (which defaults to USER_HOME/.gradle if
Specifies the JDK installation directory to use.
