Gradle Android Maven plugin

Modification to the standard Maven plugin to be compatible with android-library projects (aar).


To use the android-maven-gradle-plugin, just apply the plugin in your android-library project. Also add the plugin classpath dependency to the buildScript.

buildscript {
    repositories {

    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.github.dcendents:android-maven-gradle-plugin:1.5'

apply plugin: ''
apply plugin: ''

Or use the new syntax since Gradle 2.1

plugins {
  id "" version "1.5"

You can set the maven groupId and version in the script build.gradle:

group = 'com.example'
version = '1.0'

The artifactId is set in settings.gradle: = 'artifact'


    compile('') {
            exclude group: '', module: ''


Please refer to the standard Maven plugin documentation:
