Gradle 4.6 init plugin

In the 4.6 Gradle documentation there’s a new section for the updated init plugin

However, I’ve not gotten any results out of this.

I do have gradle 4.6 installed:

]$ gradle -v

Gradle 4.6

Build time:   2018-02-28 13:36:36 UTC

While I realize this is still incubating, is this supposed to work at all in 4.6 as indicated by the manual and also the getting started tutorial

What specifically are you trying that hasn’t gotten any results? I use this quite frequently as a starting point for any incomplete excerpt posted here in the forums, and haven’t observed any unexpected behavior with 4.6.

Thanks for responding James.

Today I tried again, and it just worked :frowning: sigh… I tried yesterday many times after installing but maybe my environment was broken somehow.

What I was trying was simply the most basic process:

  • create a directory
  • init the project using gradle init

from this I was getting an error “the init plugin is not applied” but as above gradle version showed 4.6 so I was confused, but also I may have had a gradle daemon running (though that is also confusing because I typically disable that globally).

Sorry for the noise.
