This project provides support for easily depending on common Android libraries in Bazel.
gmaven.bzl, a file containing external repository
targets for all artifacts in Google Maven Repository plus their
dependencies, and the supporting tools for generating it.
Please see the releases page for instructions on using the latest snapshot.
To use this from your project, in your
WORKSPACE file add
# Google Maven Repository GMAVEN_TAG = "20180607-1" # or the tag from the latest release http_archive( name = "gmaven_rules", strip_prefix = "gmaven_rules-%s" % GMAVEN_TAG, url = "https://github.com/bazelbuild/gmaven_rules/archive/%s.tar.gz" % GMAVEN_TAG, ) load("@gmaven_rules//:gmaven.bzl", "gmaven_rules") gmaven_rules()
You can then reference the generated library targets from your
BUILD files like:
load("@gmaven_rules//:defs.bzl", "gmaven_artifact") android_library( ... deps = [ gmaven_artifact("com.android.support:design:aar:27.0.2"), gmaven_artifact("com.android.support:support_annotations:jar:27.0.2"), gmaven_artifact("com.android.support.test.espresso:espresso_core:aar:3.0.1"), ], )
You can see the full list of generated targets in
gmaven.bzl, run the following command. It will take about 3 minutes.
bazel run //:gmaven_to_bazel && cp bazel-bin/gmaven_to_bazel.runfiles/__main__/gmaven.bzl .
Currently, cross-repository dependency resolution is not supported. Some of the artifacts depend on other artifacts that are not present on Google Maven, and these missing dependencies are silently ignored and may cause failures at runtime.
