We provide Gradle plugins and documentation to help you build good things with Gradle and Kotlin.


The Gradle plugin de.fayard.buildSrcVersions is our first attempt at making managing Gradle dependencies easier.

It provides a task $ ./gradlew buildSrcVersions that generates two files buildSrc/.../Libs.kt and buildSrc/.../Versions.kt with dependencies definitions and versions that you can use wherever you want in your Gradle build.


// top-level "./build.gradle(.kts)"
plugins {
  id("de.fayard.buildSrcVersions") version "0.7.0"

We have exciting plans coming for the future!

The Gradle plugin de.fayard.refreshVersions will be the core of a better solution to manage dependencies.

It provides a task ./gradlew refreshVersions that extract the dependencies versions to a file versions.properties

The Gradle plugin de.fayard.dependencies will make it easier and much faster to add common dependencies to your build.

For Android devs: com.louiscad.splitties

Android devs deserve a special attention, because they have a greater need to make their builds simpler.

The Gradle plugin com.louiscad.splitties will provide additional features for them:

  • a task ./gradlew androidDoctor will detect common Android build problems
  • a task ./gradlew migrateToAndroidX will provide a simple, fast and reliable way to migrate from the Android support libraries to AndroidX
  • what else? time will tell.
