I have a plugin that export your Gradle dependencies to the file and allows you to find available updates

Gradle dependencies with IDE integration and lookup for available updates

The Gradle plugin de.fayard.buildSrcVersions goal is to make it as painless as possible to upgrade your project to the latest and greatest version of everything.

It does that by extracting all your dependencies, searching for available dependencies updates and generating Kotlin code, Groovy code or Gradle properties.


Edit your root build.gradle(.kts) file

We recommend to use the plugins block:

buildscript {
plugins {
  id("de.fayard.buildSrcVersions") version "0.6.5"
// Don't put any code before the buildscripts {} and plugins {} block

Updating Gradle is usually a good idea. You get less bugs, more features and more build speed, and it’s as simple as this:

$ ./gradlew wrapper --gradle-version 5.6.2

If you have to, use instead the legacy buildscript { …​ } syntax

buildscript {
  repositories {
    maven {

It looks like this:
