I must say that when I first encountered Gradle I didn’t like it very much. But that was mostly (if not all) due to my own ignorance. I really didn’t looked into it much.
A couple of months ago I had to get into it a bit deeper. I had to create a multi project build almost from scratch with a couple of requirements that were not all that standard. I fell in love with it!!. I had so much fun feeling the power and control I had over the whole process. I just kept going through the docs again and again trying to optimize the build a little more and learning tips and tricks here and there.
Today I had to work with gradle again, importing an ant build and making sure everything worked correctly. Apart from conflicts in tasks names (which I resolved with a comment in http://issues.gradle.org/browse/GRADLE-771) everything is running perfectly.
Everything is so clean and clear. It’s so much fun I hope they would assign me to migrate the whole ant build (I hope this is not too geeky hehehe).
Anyway, I just wanted to congratulate everyone involved in the project. It’s simply great. Apart from a problem I haven’t solved with a build and a problem with the eclipse plugin when creating git repositories everything is perfect. Thanks again for the work!
