Android studio very slow gradle build

Posted by: admin June 15, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

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.daemon=true

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

org.gradle.parallel=true
org.gradle.configureondemand=true

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?
Thanks

How to&Answers:

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

then,Add this line to the file:

org.gradle.daemon=true

Answer:

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.
