Android studio very slow gradle build

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment


I’m new to Android Studio..whenever I run my project it takes around 14 mins for gradle build..I’ve check for solutions to improve build speed as mentioned in here

My gradle.properties file:

## Project-wide Gradle settings.


org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8


but the problem is still the same and each of these lines are dim in color just like they were comment lines code.
when the mouse is hovered on top there a message which says “Unused Property. This inspection reports all properties not referenced from outside of the properties file”

how can I fix this?

How to&Answers:

make gradle.propertiesfile in C:\Users\<username>\.gradle (Windows)

then,Add this line to the file:



Solution for Linux/OSX may looks like this:

echo 'org.gradle.daemon=true' >> ~/.gradle/gradle.properties

echo 'org.gradle.configureondemand=true' >> ~/.gradle/gradle.properties

echo 'org.gradle.parallel=true' >> ~/.gradle/gradle.properties

echo 'org.gradle.jvmargs=-Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m -XX:+HeapDumpOnOutOfMemoryError -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8' >> ~/.gradle/gradle.properties

Using these commands you make changes in global gradle.properties file.
