Hot questions for Using Butter Knife in android studio 3.0

Top 10 Java Open Source / Butter Knife / android studio 3.0

Question:

After upgrading to Android Studio 3.0 I had some issues with gradle that I was able to fix checking on the developers website

However, I was not able to find how to fix the issue with the apply plugin: 'android-apt' I have tried several things such as removing it from the project gradle and add it to the app gradle as annotationProcessor 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.8' . also removed the apt, etc, etc.

Anyway, Studio is complaining about it. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Question:

Got error while compiling android application.

Execution failed for task ':app:javaPreCompileDebug'
The following dependencies on the compile classpath are found to contain annotation processor.Please add them to the annotationProcessor configuration.
- butterknife-5.1.2.jar (butterknife-5.1.2.jar)

Answer:

Dont use 5.1.2 jar.Instead use this latest version in the gradle and also use the annotation to make it work.

dependencies {
    compile 'com.jakewharton:butterknife:8.8.1'
    annotationProcessor 'com.jakewharton:butterknife-compiler:8.8.1'
}
