Configuring Booster Gradle Plugin

Configuring booster-gradle-plugin in the build.gradle of the Android root project:

buildscript {
    ext.booster_version = "4.13.0"

    repositories {
        google()
        mavenCentral()
    }

    dependencies {
        classpath "com.didiglobal.booster:booster-gradle-plugin:$booster_version"
    }
}

// ...

plugins {
    id("com.android.application")

WARNING

Some Gradle plugins might conflict with Booster, if you are trying to apply other third-party Gradle plugins, please put com.didiglobal.booster in the first line below com.android.application as much as possible.

Configuring Booster Plugins

Configuring Booster plugins in the build.gradle under the Android root project, take booster-task-analyseropen in new window as an example, put the plugin maven coordinates into the classpath of Gradle build script:

buildscript {
    ext.booster_version = "4.13.0"

    repositories {
        google()
        mavenCentral()
    }

    dependencies {
        classpath "com.didiglobal.booster:booster-gradle-plugin:$booster_version"
        classpath "com.didiglobal.booster:booster-task-analyser:$booster_version"
    }
}

        classpath("com.didiglobal.booster:booster-task-analyser:$booster_version")

WARNING

The task transformClassesWithBoosterFor${Variant} won't be executed if no Booster plugin has been found from the build script classpath, and this feature can be used to improve the build performance by enabling it only for release build.

Configuration for Release-Only

Booster provides many plugins, if you put all plugins into the classpath of Gradle build script, it will slow down the build performance and decrease the development efficiency, to avoid this, some plugins can be configured for release only by using the Gradle start parameter to distinguish the build type:

buildscript {
    ext.booster_version = "4.13.0"
    ext.debug = gradle.startParameter.taskNames.any {
        it.contains('debug') || it.contains('Debug')
    }

    repositories {
        google()
        mavenCentral()
    }

    dependencies {
        classpath "com.didiglobal.booster:booster-gradle-plugin:$booster_version"

        if (!debug) {
            classpath "com.didiglobal.booster:booster-task-analyser:$booster_version"
        }
    }
}

        if (!debug) {
