Gradle Goodness: Show Hidden Model Objects [Code Snippet]

Learn how to use rule based model configuration in order to see which objects are available in the Gradle model space.

Just released, a free O’Reilly book on Reactive Microsystems: The Evolution of Microservices at Scale. Brought to you in partnership with Lightbend.

We use the model task to see which objects are available in the Gradle model space. The model spaced is managed by Rule based model configuration. Objects can be defined as hidden by the object author(s). By default a hidden object is not shown in the model report. We must use the task option --showHidden to show also the hidden objects in the model report.

$ gradle -q model --showHidden
