Perform the following steps to create the library:

  1. Create a GitHub account.
  2. Create a Git repository containing your library project.
  3. Modify your library project’s build.gradle file by adding the following code:
apply plugin: ''


// Build a jar with source files.
task sourcesJar(type: Jar) {
    classifier = 'sources'

task javadoc(type: Javadoc) {
    failOnError  false
    source =
    classpath += project.files(android.getBootClasspath().join(File.pathSeparator))
    classpath += configurations.compile

// Build a jar with javadoc.
task javadocJar(type: Jar, dependsOn: javadoc) {
    classifier = 'javadoc'
    from javadoc.destinationDir

artifacts {
    archives sourcesJar
    archives javadocJar

Make sure that you commit/push the above changes to GitHub.

  1. Create a release from the current code on Github.
  2. Run gradlew install on your code.
  3. Your library is now available by the following dependency:
compile 'com.github.[YourUser]:[github repository name]:[release tag]'
