Gradle Processors

A plugin for Gradle that cleans up integration of Java annotation processors with the Eclipse and IDEA plugins.

GitHub release Travis license


To use it, add the following to your projects' build.gradle file:

plugins {
  id 'org.inferred.processors' version '<LATEST VERSION>'

The eclipse and idea tasks will now configure your IDE to run annotation processors as part of their regular compilation when you use an annotationProcessor dependency.

dependencies {
  annotationProcessor ''
  implementation ''

Gradle 4.5 and earlier

If you are still using Gradle 4.5 or earlier, you can use the legacy processor dependency type to enable annotation processing:

dependencies {
  processor ''

This functions as a combination of the modern "annotationProcessor" and "compileOnly" blocks: it both enables the annotation processor, and makes any annotations it exposes available to use in source code.

Gradle 2.0 and earlier

For users of Gradle 2.0 and earlier, the plugins API is not available. Instead, add the following to your top-level build.gradle file:

buildscript {
  repositories {
    maven {
      url ''
  dependencies {
    classpath '<LATEST VERSION>'

And just the apply directive to your subproject build.gradle files:

apply plugin: 'org.inferred.processors'

You can now include annotation processors with the processor dependency type, as above.

Building from source

To build the project from source, run ./gradlew build, or gradlew.bat build on Windows, in the root directory of your checkout. You will need Java installed.
