Using Gradle for Android

Here at Dukehoff we’re big fans of Maven, and for typical DukeScript applications it works just fine. But using Android specific libraries can be painful, because Google provides dependencies via the SDK instead of a repository. Also, if you’d like to use Android Studio for managing Icons, etc. it’s easier with Gradle.

Therefore we created a little demo to get you started, where the Android Module uses Gradle:

Make sure to build the project with maven first, so all the dependencies are present. Then you can open the project in Android Studio and use all the nice Android specific features to develop your app, add assets, etc.
