[GRADLE-2407] Cannot load custom plugin (from outside distribution) to project from an init script Created: 30/Jul/12  Updated: 03/Feb/17  Resolved: 03/Feb/17

At the moment, there's no way to apply a plugin (from outside of the Gradle distribution) from an init script.

beforeLoad is too early as buildscript hasn't been evaluated. afterLoad works, but then the user cannot use any plugin features in their build script.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!

This still would be a useful feature in order to apply required plugins (e.g. as per company policy) for all current and future projects by simply adding them to the init script once.

This would really help our company integrate with user's builds in Android Studio without requiring users to change their companies build script that is checked in.
