Git vs Gradle: What are the differences?

What is Git? Fast, scalable, distributed revision control system. Git is a free and open source distributed version control system designed to handle everything from small to very large projects with speed and efficiency.

What is Gradle? A powerful build system for the JVM. Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites.

Git belongs to "Version Control System" category of the tech stack, while Gradle can be primarily classified under "Java Build Tools".

"Distributed version control system" is the top reason why over 1441 developers like Git, while over 106 developers mention "Flexibility" as the leading cause for choosing Gradle.

Git and Gradle are both open source tools. It seems that Git with 27.9K GitHub stars and 16.1K forks on GitHub has more adoption than Gradle with 9.16K GitHub stars and 2.67K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Git has a broader approval, being mentioned in 3891 company stacks & 4630 developers stacks; compared to Gradle, which is listed in 456 company stacks and 351 developer stacks.

The main build tool. Integrate and delegate build to NodeJS in the client application, and build the server, its used for development productivity and production optimisations and quality. Automate all machine scripts and build things from dev to continuous integration to production

been an avid git user for over 6 years. was a little hard to grasp coming from the world of perforce but once it hit me that it was just a glorified patch manager everything fell into place. mainly use the command line interface, most ui's feel bulky and weak.

Git has rendered itself to be an integral part of all development at JustChunks. We heavily rely on Git as our version-control-system of choice and use branches, tags and decentralized-development to achieve our software-management-goals.

I use Git because there is nothing else that seems better for backup and working with other developers. However, the learning curve is high and there are times when non-developers must also know how to use git.

the next generation of version control, all others follow older outdated models. Open Source, no fees to use. Can hoist up your own internal server. Can live on a thumb drive. Developers can share from any OS.
