See this blog post for more context on this 'library': http://chris.banes.me/2013/08/27/pushing-aars-to-maven-central/.
1. Have a working Gradle build
This is upto you.
2. Update your home gradle.properties
This will include the username and password to upload to the Maven server and so that they are kept local on your machine. The location defaults to
It may also include your signing key id, password, and secret key ring file (for signed uploads). Signing is only necessary if you're putting release builds of your project on maven central.
NEXUS_USERNAME=chrisbanes NEXUS_PASSWORD=g00dtry signing.keyId=ABCDEF12 signing.password=n1c3try signing.secretKeyRingFile=~/.gnupg/secring.gpg
3. Create project root gradle.properties
You may already have this file, in which case just edit the original. This file should contain the POM values which are common to all of your sub-project (if you have any). For instance, here's ActionBar-PullToRefresh's:
VERSION_NAME=0.9.2-SNAPSHOT VERSION_CODE=92 GROUP=com.github.chrisbanes.actionbarpulltorefresh POM_DESCRIPTION=A modern implementation of the pull-to-refresh for Android POM_URL=https://github.com/chrisbanes/ActionBar-PullToRefresh POM_SCM_URL=https://github.com/chrisbanes/ActionBar-PullToRefresh POM_SCM_CONNECTION=scm:firstname.lastname@example.org:chrisbanes/ActionBar-PullToRefresh.git POM_SCM_DEV_CONNECTION=scm:email@example.com:chrisbanes/ActionBar-PullToRefresh.git POM_LICENCE_NAME=The Apache Software License, Version 2.0 POM_LICENCE_URL=http://www.apache.org/licenses/LICENSE-2.0.txt POM_LICENCE_DIST=repo POM_DEVELOPER_ID=chrisbanes POM_DEVELOPER_NAME=Chris Banes
VERSION_NAME value is important. If it contains the keyword
SNAPSHOT then the build will upload to the snapshot server, if not then to the release server.
4. Create gradle.properties in each sub-project
The values in this file are specific to the sub-project (and override those in the root
gradle.properties). In this example, this is just the name, artifactId and packaging type:
POM_NAME=ActionBar-PullToRefresh Library POM_ARTIFACT_ID=library POM_PACKAGING=aar
5. Call the script from each sub-modules build.gradle
Add the following at the end of each
build.gradle that you wish to upload:
apply from: 'https://raw.github.com/chrisbanes/gradle-mvn-push/master/gradle-mvn-push.gradle'
6. Build and Push
You can now build and push:
$ gradle clean build uploadArchives
There are other properties which can be set:
RELEASE_REPOSITORY_URL (defaults to Maven Central's staging server) SNAPSHOT_REPOSITORY_URL (defaults to Maven Central's snapshot server)
