Subject [GitHub] [cordova-android] fserb edited a comment on issue #982: gradle.daemon always overwritten on

   Yeah, that's close to what I did in the end. I created an after_build hook on android that
kills gradle.
   That's the whole point of this. You should not have to ask me why. There's an option on
gradle, the option should be respected and not overwritten every time it's run. Specially
if it's an option that leave a daemon running on my computer, that should not even be default.
This setting should be in the documentation, not in the default.
   Running `cordova android` doesn't give it permission to do whatever it wants on the computer.
It definitely doesn't state that "this is a cordova android development machine, which is
what I'll be doing until I reboot, so please spawn daemons to make this faster next time".
   This is a horrible practice. Not only everything would be worse off if every program acted
like this, but also, it's a huge break of trust between a command line application and the
user. This is borderline malware level of evilness.
