How to manually install Android Gradle plugin to an offline workstation?

(Weekend) #1

I’m working on a workstation which doesn’t have WAN network access. I can only transfer files to the workstation through a company LAN website. So I’m dealing with a TOTALLY-OFFLINE Android Studio.

My project requires Gradle binary gradle-4.4-all.zip and Android Studio Gradle plugin com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3.

gradle-4.4-all.zip has already been downloaded and extracted to ~/.gradle/wrapper/dists/gradle-4.4-all/<blahblah>/gradle-4.4/ and works well.

com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3 can be downloaded from
https://bintray.com/version/files/android/android-tools/com.android.tools.build.gradle/2.3.3

But where should I put it in?

I know gradle 4.4 and gradle plugin 2.3.3 are too old. The project is a large one, many developers work together, I don’t have permission to update the dependency version.

Okay, found the path.

My laptop has WAN access. Configuring com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.3.3, gradle sync, a global search… And the path is ~/.gradle/caches/modules-2/files-2.1/com.android.tools.build/gradle/2.3.3

Copied the file tree to the workstation, but it still doesn’t work.
