How to tell when gradle is being run from AndroidStudio?

I need to build some hacks into my gradle build file so that Android Studio understands some things. I don't need these hacks when I run the build from the command line directory. Is there a way to detect when the build is being run from within Android Studio? Maybe through environment variables, etc?

Use gradle -P blah=val from command line and in your build.gradle use project.hasProperty("blah") or project.getProperty("test") or if (blah ... ) to decide whether run your hack or not.


OK I found the direct way :)

def env = System.getProperties()
if (env[''] != null) {
    // build from Android Studio, do magic here

def sysprops = System.getProperties()
if (sysprops['idea.platform.prefix'] != null) {
    // Built from AndroidStudio
} else {
    // Built from command line

Configure your build, Gradle and the Android plugin for Gradle provide a flexible way to compile, build, and To check for a build type instead, use variant. To specify options that change how Gradle runs all your tests, configure the testOptions block For new projects, Android Studio uses a default settings file ( proguard-android.txt ) from the� The addition of gradle and the newest Android Studio have changed project layout dramatically. If you have an older project I highly recommend creating a clean one with the latest Android Studio and see what Google considers the standard project. Android Studio has facilities for importing older projects which can also help.

Jake Wharton suggests android.injected.invoked.from.ide to speed butterknife at development time by using reflection:

dependencies {
  if (properties.containsKey('android.injected.invoked.from.ide')) {
    implementation 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-reflect:<version>'
  } else {
    implementation 'com.jakewharton:butterknife:<version>'
    kapt 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-compiler:<version>'

From Twitter:

Hey ButterKnife users: I'm working on a reflection-based implementation for use during development so the annotation processor is not needed.

  • That's a good idea, but it'd be better if there was a way built in to Android Studio. I don't want to have to remember to set the property each time I run the build.
  • It looks like android.injected.invoked.from.ide is set in the environment as well.
  • Does this still work w/ Android Studio 2.0? those two environment variables (android.injected.invoked.from.ide and aren't set when I compile from Android Studio :-(
