[GRADLE-817] help the build developer by listing available methods/properties Created: 09/Feb/10  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

When programming a build, one has to know what methods are availbable, e.g.

subprojects { ... }
dependencies { ... }

It's all too easy to forget or misspell those names.

The same is true for available properties.

One approach would be to list those items in the documentation in a single place (at least for the known ones, not the tasks that are available as methods, of course).

A second approach would be a method that lists them to stdout.

Third, the --gui could lists those (beyond what it does for tasks).

Best, of course, would be IDE-internal help. For IntellijIDEA, that could be done via gdsl.

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!
