gradle-xcodePlugin makes it easier to build Mac and iOS projects by specifying the build settings in a single configuration file. The goal is to keep the build file as simple as possible, but also enable a great flexibility for the build.

The gradle-xcodePlugin uses the Apple command line tools (like xcodebuild) to perform the build.

Here a brief overview of the features:


With version 0.11 the identifier of the plugin has changed to org.openbakery.xcode-plugin see:


  • Xcode 5 or greater
  • Gradle 2.0 or greater
  • Java 1.6 or greater

Current stable version is 0.11.6

0.9.x up to 0.11.x supports Xcode 5, Xcode 6.* and Xcode 7


When you use gradle 1.x you you can use version 0.10.3-gradle1



Create a build.gradle file and place it in the same directory where xcodeproj file lies.

Here the minimal content you need in your build.gradle file:

plugins {
  id "org.openbakery.xcode-plugin" version "0.11.6"

xcodebuild {
  scheme = 'MY-SCHEMA'
  target = 'MY-TARGET'


You find example projects in example/ with a working build.gradle file. After you have fetched the example go to the example/iOS/Example directory and you build the project different targets:

  • Build with gradle xcodebuild
  • Run the unit tests with gradle test
  • Perform a device build and upload it to hockeyapp with gradle integration. Here you need to specify your sign settings first (see Signing ). Open the build.gradle file an follow the instructions.
  • Perform an appstore build with gradle appstore. (Also the sign settings are needed).


I'm always happy to receive pull requests with new features and if you send a pull request please consider the following things:

  • Use the develop branch for pull requests, because all the new stuff is implemented in the develop branch and also pull requests are always merge into develop
  • Use Tabs instead of spaces.
  • Make sure that all unit tests are working before you send the pull request. Just run 'gradle test'
  • I urge you to write unit tests.
  • For unit test please use the spock framework for mocking. I want to remove the old gmock framework and port the old tests to use spock.
  • If a pull request does not contain any unit tests, I always think twice if I should merge it at all.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
