android – avoid lint when gradle execute check

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

could someone tell me a way to avoid executing “lint” each time I run in gradle check?

I’ve defined in build.gradle

lintOptions { 

    quiet true 

}

However, it keeps doing this task. The problem is that it takes ages each time I have to do a check.

How to&Answers:
gradle build -x lint 

Source: Gradle User Guide : Excluding Tasks

Answer:

You can skip it using adding -x lint when you run the check task:

./gradlew check -x lint 

If you want to skip it permanently you can add this to your build.gradle before apply plugin: 'com.android.application':

tasks.whenTaskAdded { task ->
    if (task.name.equals("lint")) {
        task.enabled = false
    }
}

Answer:

I just disabled the task during project setup:

android {
    lintOptions {
        tasks.lint.enabled = false
    }
}

Note: it’s not necessary to put the statement inside android.lintOptions, but since it’s configuring lint, it’s nice to have them together.

Answer:

Set checkReleaseBuilds to false will disable lint check on release build. Add following scripts to your build.gradle file:

lintOptions {
     /**
     * Set whether lint should check for fatal errors during release builds. Default is true.
     * If issues with severity "fatal" are found, the release build is aborted.
     */
    checkReleaseBuilds false
}

Answer:

(Gradle 1.1.0, as packaged with Android Studio 1.1.0)

For anyone wondering how to do this with multiple subprojects, I ended up having to disable them using the root project build.gradle file like so:

task lintCheck() {
    getAllTasks(true).each {
        def lintTasks = it.value.findAll { it.name.contains("lint") }
        lintTasks.each {
            it.enabled = false
        }
    }
}

Answer:

use this code to disable all lint tasks using Gradle’s new configuration avoidance API:

tasks.withType(com.android.build.gradle.tasks.LintBaseTask).configureEach {
    enabled = false
}

(tested on Android Gradle plugin 3.3.2.)

Answer:

If you happen to have different build variants, perhaps a more robust script solution would be

afterEvaluate {
  Set<Task> result = tasks.findAll { task -> task.name.startsWith('lintVital') }
  result.each { Task task ->
    task.enabled = false
  }
}

Answer:

If you still want the lint task to work you can also:

project.tasks.check.dependsOn.remove("lint")
