Bitbucket pipelines reduce build time by caching gradle


image: java:8

    - step:
        script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
          - bash ./gradlew --version
          - bash ./gradlew build


I' wondering how I can reduce the build time for a gradle based project.

On my PC Gradle finished the build in 5 seconds while it currently takes on bitbucket pipelines 2 minutes because Gradle has to do a complete setup each time it builds instead of caching the required data.

We support dependency caching.

You can add

- gradle

to the step in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml.

See our documentation.
