Gradle gui intellij plugin should not use a colon when executing tasks


(Clemens Bertram) #1

I’ve been a happy user of the Gradle GUI IntelliJ plugin. One thing I noticed is that when I select a task from the task tree and have it executed, the gradle command line uses a colon prefix with the task name.

In my case at least, this is not what I want, and some dependent tasks end up not getting executed.

My work-around is using the command line tab instead, where I can execute the task without the : prefix. If there are users who prefer the “task graph” execution (with colon), does it make sense to make it configurable?
