If compiling a java app is as easy as running a node app 🙄🙄

    @vinaysshenoy not the biggest fan of gradle. Too flexible in my opinion. It tends to lead to very complex and unmaintainable builds for large projects.

    Also, it's incredibly slow. (We migrated from gradle to maven and want from a 1:10 minute build to 0:20 in maven)

    @ChappIO I guess that since I'm an Android dev, I never worked with Maven and went from Ant to Gradle directly. So I guess I don't have anything to compare against.

    @vinaysshenoy ah yes, Google went for gradle mainly. Which I think is fine because android apps tend to have pretty simple builds anyway.

    And yea, gradle looks quite a bit less intimidating.

    @ChappIO I find the learning curve of Maven quite long, after 2 years using it I still have difficulties with some part of this tool...

    @tomabolt I can understand that. That is a common disadvantage of maven.

    So you say running a Node app is easy?
