Hello friends, we need your help! It used to be cumbersome to migrate an existing project to refreshVersions, and we are changing that. We just published refreshVersions 0.11.0 which contains a new task refreshVersionsMigrate It would be nice if you can test it out and provide feedback before we announce it. https://github.com/jmfayard/refreshVersions/discussions/396

Added
Copy code
id("de.fayard.refreshVersions") version "0.11.0"
to my root build.gradle.kts plugins block and got an error when syncing Could not resolve all files for configuration 'appcoreLibraryDesugaring'. Cannot resolve external dependency com.android.toolsdesugar jdk libs1.1.5 because no repositories are defined. Required by: project :app
j
@Colton Idle refreshVersions has to be added to
settings.gradle.kts
, not
build.gradle.kts
If the problem persist, please run again with
--scan
and provide the build scan URL

Really? I've never seen a plugin block go into that file. It was in the documentation too. Whoops! Sorry. Trying again today.
First impressions: 1. The automation seems to work great. Even replaced some commented out dependencies with _ which is nice IMO 2. It left things behind like
val rxbindingVersion = "3.1.0"
which is fine, just interesting I suppose? 3. In version.properties, some versions look like
<http://plugin.com|plugin.com>.diffplug.spotless=5.14.2
and others
<http://version.com|version.com>.airbnb.android..epoxy=4.6.2
(notice the two dots between android and epoxy) 4. All of the spacing looks uniform in version.properties, EXCEPT for this section right here. idky
Copy code
version.okhttp3=4.9.1

 version.okio=2.10.0

version.org.greenrobot..eventbus=3.2.0
(notice the extra space on okio) Besides that it looks like the migration went smooth. Going to try this out locally for a few days and then maybe push it to the team. Thanks Jean

Thanks Colton! 2. I'm aware of this, fortunately it's not too much work to see that the veriable is unused and delete it 3. Plugin and libraries have a different naming scheme for versions. The two dots are on purpose, they replace what would be the two dots separator between a group and an artifact 4. That spaces is icky but it's also on purpose. If there was an available update for okio, you would see it as a comment "# available # =2.11.0" correctly aligned thanks to the extra space

I still don't really understand #4, but glad its not a bug. It's the only dependency that wasn't aligned properly.

Copy code
version.androidx.browser=1.0.0
##           # available=1.2.0-alpha07

version.okio=2.0.0
### available=2.1.0

Ah okay. I guess I'm just not used to how refreshVersions displays possible upgrades.
