Lazy resolution of dependencies in Android

(Mattia) #1

Hi guys,
I’ve this project schema:

  -> references library1, library2

What i want to achieve is the ability to build library1 and 2 into aar format and add them as dependencies of “releaseImplementation” of app “assembleRelease” task.

Currently I’ve tried this:

//adding a dependsOn before my app is compiled in release mode
afterEvaluate {

task buildObfuscatedAar(type: Exec) {
    commandLine "sh", "$projectDir/scripts/"
    doLast {
        configurations.releaseImplementation.withDependencies { deps ->
            println "Resolving dependencies release"
            dependencies {
                releaseImplementation(name: 'library1-release', ext: 'aar')
                releaseImplementation(name: 'library2-release', ext: 'aar')

If I try to run this with ./gradlew :app:assembleRelease --stacktrace, I get this error:

Cannot change dependencies of configuration ‘:app:releaseImplementation’ after it has been included in dependency resolution.

So then I tried to change buildObfuscatedAar in this way below without results, I can’t even complete the normal project sync without errors saying that I don’t have the aars in my library.

task buildObfuscatedAar(type: Exec) {
    //launch a script which build library1 and library2 in release mode and copy the aar in
    //app/libs folder
    commandLine "sh", "$projectDir/scripts/"
    //reference all the aars in the folder
    def aarsFolder = fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.aar'])
    aarsFolder.each { File aarFile ->
        //remove the extension of the file (.aar)
        def length = - 4
        def fileName =[0..<length]
        //add each aar to the "releaseImplementation" configuration, which is provided
        //by the Android plugin
        project.dependencies.add("releaseImplementation", [name: fileName])

How can i solve that?

Thank you.
