Use Gradle in GUI mode

Before running the commands shown on this page, you should load the Bitnami stack environment by executing the installdir/use_APPNAME script (Linux and MacOS) or by clicking the shortcut in the Start Menu under “Start -> Bitnami APPNAME Stack -> Application console” (Windows). On OS X VMs, the installation directory is /opt/bitnami and OS X VM users can click the “Open Terminal” button to run commands. Learn more about the Bitnami stack environment and about OS X VMs.

Gradle also has a graphical user interface mode, which lets you use Gradle interactively. To enable this mode, follow these steps:

  • Execute Gradle with the --gui flag:

    $ gradle --gui

    A window will open and it will look like the image below:
