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.

What is JitPack? JitPack builds GitHub Gradle and Maven projects on demand and provides ready-to-use packages. JitPack is an easy to use package repository for Gradle/Sbt and Maven projects We build GitHub projects on demand and provides ready-to-use packages..

Gradle and JitPack can be primarily classified as "Java Build" tools.

"Flexibility" is the top reason why over 106 developers like Gradle, while over 5 developers mention "Because uploading to maven central is a ball ache" as the leading cause for choosing JitPack.

Gradle is an open source tool with 9.23K GitHub stars and 2.7K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Gradle's open source repository on GitHub.

    What are some alternatives to Gradle and JitPack?
    Apache Ant
    Ant is a Java-based build tool. In theory, it is kind of like Make, without Make's wrinkles and with the full portability of pure Java code.
    Jenkins
    In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
    Groovy
    Groovy builds upon the strengths of Java but has additional power features inspired by languages like Python, Ruby and Smalltalk. It makes modern programming features available to Java developers with almost-zero learning curve.
    Apache Maven
    Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.
    Bazel
    Bazel is a build tool that builds code quickly and reliably. It is used to build the majority of Google's software, and thus it has been designed to handle build problems present in Google's development environment.

    Gradle

    We use Apache Maven because it is a standard. Gradle is very good alternative, but Gradle doesn't provide any advantage for our project. Gradle is slower (without running daemon), need more resources and a learning curve is quite big. Our project can not use a great flexibility of Gradle. On the other hand, Maven is well-know tool integrated in many IDEs, Dockers and so on.
