GVM – tool for managing groovy/gradle versions

Just discovered GVM – Groovy enVironment Manager ( http://gvmtool.net/ )
First impression: it’s like apt-get, but for groovy-based frameworks. Second impression: support of multiple versions is very useful thing.
Will use it at home and in office to automate installation of groovy-related stuff.

Gradle script: multiproject git-gradle management

Suppose you build your software project from many open-source components, most of which are already available via git. How to automate clone/pull/build/install cycle, especially across projects from different git-repositories? How to establish high-level inter-project dependencies?

For that I wrote gradle script, which implements multiproject git-gradle management. It works as follows: you write configuration file, name it “config.gradle”, put it to the same folder as “build.gradle” (of multiproject git-gradle) and then run “gradle build”.

Full documentation and sources are available at:

Automated git-pull

Suppose you have 20 git-repositories, which you actively pull and push from/to central location (e.g. github). Don’t you think pulling them by hand is too mechanical? And what if you forget to pull some?

I wrote little gradle script capable of automated git-pull:

You drink morning coffee and the machine does the job for you.

Credits come to the creators of excellent gradle-git plugin:
