I recently had issues using the axion-release-plugin and wanted to debug the gradle plugin. But all manuals which you can find via google here or here failed because the argument
--no-deamon was unknown.
After some digging in the gradle documentation, if found that
Dorg.gradle.daemon=false can be used instead.
So to debug your gradle task from a plugin:
- Clone the code of the gradle plugin in the specific version of use.
- Ensure the plugin code is recognized as source code by your IDE. Maybe you need to start
gradle syncor import the project
- In your project run
./gradlew myTaskToDebug -Dorg.gradle.debug=true -Dorg.gradle.daemon=false --stacktracethe
- Add a remote debug run configuration in your Intellij to the gradle plugin project configuration for the port 5005
4.Set your breakpoint in the plugin code
5.Run your new configuration as debug
