What is Gradle in Android Studio?

user10071 Published in September 19, 2018, 6:45 pm

Gradle is bit confusing to me and also for new Android developer. Can anyone explain what gradle in Android Studio is and what its purpose is? Why is Gradle included in Android Studio?

    To answer why you would want a build tool such as Gradle, check out this post from Jeff Atwood. – Adam S May 25 '13 at 23:21

    When someone asks a question on here that yes, does have a lot of links in Google about it, what they are really asking is for someone to answer the question with plain language and to put it in context, such as why do we need it, who will use it most, do we need to know it to build Android apps in Android Studio, etc. Because most often the links you find about it on Google are in "tech-speak" and for a beginner this is confusing. – Azurespot May 19 '14 at 18:09

    @NoniA. Exactly my thoughts. I am still a little confused, is gradle just the background process that compiles the code I have written? Also, after looking at lots of other answers, they mention dependencies. What are those? THanks so much! – user5562706 Jan 24 '16 at 1:02
