Android gradle on gitlab-ci with Sonar

Posted by: on Sep 30, 2014 | No Comments

Backstory
Gradle has a bug where the plugin sonar-runner does not work properly. There is a fix in the nightly builds (2.1-rc1) which fixes this issue. However, the plugin android studio uses is way older than 2.1-rc1. And it’s not possible to use the newer gradle binary when building in android studio or outside.
For version control I use gitlab and for continous integration testing I use gitlab-ci. Gitlab-ci uses runners that are decoupled from the server that hosts the code, which for security reasons is great.

So this post is a guide in how to install a gitlab-ci runner with a sonar runner. Tested and working on Ubuntu 14.04.

Started using uchiwa and sensu for monitoring my servers. So been playing around with the help of Taylor Ling’s building blocks for kitkat to create some mockups for an app.

Bug in eclipse with latest ADT?

Posted by: on Jul 6, 2012 | 3 Comments

So, last night I updated to the latest ADT version. Which was 20.0.0.v201206242043-391819. The new updates that were presented at I/O rocks, helping out with fragments in the first activity and icons. That is just awesome. But there is just one little problem, it doesn’t seem to work.

I have the latest support library installed (Revision 9).
