Definitive solution for "Duplicate files copied in APK"


(Giuseppe Barbieri) #1

I have two very similar jar in the dependencies and useless to say, I need them both and they are huge.

I already tried to wrote a dozen of pickFirst

packagingOptions {
        pickFirst '...'
        ...
}

But obviously it’s a crap solution.

What I’d need is to say to Gradle to always pick the first one.

Is that possible or is that another solution to my problem?

Spec:

Intellij 2017.1 EAP CE

Gradle wrapper 3.3

Android API 25
