How do you find the source URL for a dependency?


(BJ Hargrave) #1

In looking to write an indexer to generate an index of dependencies for a project, I would like to determine the source URLs for the dependencies in a configuration. For example, given:

apply plugin: 'java'
repositories {
    mavenCentral()
}
configurations {
  index
}
dependencies {
    index 'commons-codec:commons-codec:1.5'
    index 'commons-lang:commons-lang:2.6'
}

How can I determine the source URLs, e.g. https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/commons-codec/commons-codec/1.5/commons-codec-1.5.jar, of the dependencies in the configuration?

configurations.index.resolve() only provides the local file objects from Gradle’s cache. Looking in configurations.index.allDependencies does not seem to provide any help either.

I know I could assemble a Maven Central URL from the GAV coordinates available from allDependencies but I would like to support any configured repository and not just Maven Central or maven-like repositories.

Unfortunately, this information is not exposed by Gradle.

Is there any plan to expose this information in future?
