How to install Gradle on Lubuntu

In this article i will show you how to install gradle on lubuntu, first of all what is gradle and why i need to install it on lubuntu?

gradle is build automation tools very similar with apache ant, gradle is based on groovy language which uses JVM (java virtual machine) just like java.

If you are android developer, you probably want to install gradle on your computer, because gradle is much better than apache ant

And gradle is the default built system for android studio. If you have no idea what i'm saying then probably don't need gradle on your lubuntu.

To install gradle, open your terminal/console/command mode (just press CTRL + ALT + T) and then type the following command:

sudo apt-get install gradle

I'm using lubuntu 15.10 wily werewolf by the way, so if you are using older version of lubuntu it might be a little bit different (maybe).

Also, it is a good idea before installing gradle you should have java on your system, read my other article about how to install java on lubuntu.

~ good luck ~
