Gradle is being adopted by enterprises and open-source projects alike for its ease of use, flexibility, and compatibility with existing standards. However, Gradle's true strength shines not when it is viewed as a wrapper around standards, but as a toolkit for creating your own standards to reflect your build patterns and practices. It is extensible at every level, but most powerfully at the level of Gradle plugins.
In this session, you'll learn the Gradle APIs you need to know to develop a plugin, the different ways to organize and distribute plugins, and the way you should use plugins as a means of extending the Gradle DSL to describe your build domain in a concise and idiomatic way. Examples will use real code for a plugin written by Tim and Matthew that can be used in development and automated deployment settings.
