Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-12078) Project setup behind proxy no longer possible with android@6.0.0
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2016 08:59:58 GMT


Jannis Achstetter commented on CB-12078:

Joe thank you for the detailed explanation. We'll investigate the hook-based approach. This
should even allow us to configure the proxy-server used by gradle based on environment variables
which is a good thing since different sites are using different proxy hosts.
I'll close this issue since I don't expect any changes to happen in cordova code.

> We are running cordova behind a forced corporate proxy server. Therefore, the environment
variables http_proxy and https_proxy are set accordingly. Unfortunately when gradle tries
to download maven dependencies, these env settings are ignored (npm works fine though). To
allow gradle to fetch the deps via the proxy, we created a plugin that adds a ""
file to the platforms/android folder containing the proxy configuration (build-time plugin
only, no influence on runtime behaviour).
> With cordova-android@<6.0.0, this procedure was okay. We added the platform, added
the proxy-config-plugin and built the app, which made gradle download the deps via the proxy.
> Since android-gradle@6.0.0, the proxy-config-plugin cannot be added to the project since
it triggers a "clean" which fails due to gradle beeing unable to fetch the dependencies (since
the proxy config is missing).
> Is it possible to (temporarily) disable the "clean"-step when adding plugins? Alternatively:
Is there another/better way to configure a proxy for gradle?
