Make native packages available for gradle


(John Scancella) #1

Gradle is becoming a attractive alternative to make. However, make is easily available from all the major package managers (rpm, yum, apt-get, etc) while gradle is not. Are there any plans to provide a way to install gradle using a native package manager?

Another use case is when I want to keep my server up to date. With a package manager it is as simple as
sudo yum update
to update everything on the system to the latest version. However since gradle isn’t available as a package I have to manually check to see if there is an update and manually apply it which is labor intensive and error prone.
