[GRADLE-86] Add command line option to add plugin to all projects Created: 05/May/08  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Together with GRADLE-84 and GRADLE-85 you could do:

gradle --use-plugins java --use-lib-dir libs --include-subdirs

This would add the java plugin, add the jars in a local directory as dependencies to all projects and include all sub directories as projects.

This would be cool to experiment with Gradle, and also for lazy developers would want to get started without config files.

Also, there could be a shortcut option for these three options:

gradle --lazy-developer java

I like this idea.

An alternative (additional) option would be to create a build script out of this information (as part of a future archetype functionality).

Our plugin system is very basic right now. One thing we want to offer is to apply plugins to projects even if they don't have declared them. This is what you are also proposing. For 0.2 we want to make the plugin system much richer. I'm not even sure if plugin is a good name for what plugins are doing right now in Gradle. We plan to diversify to different types of plugins and probably are going to use a different terminology.

I have sketched my ideas about a new plugin system in a mail on the dev list. The first milestone of the upcoming 0.2 stream is supposed to have an implementation of this (after my holidays),
