ApplicationBuildType

interface ApplicationBuildType : BuildType, ApplicationVariantDimension


Build types define certain properties that Gradle uses when building and packaging your app, and are typically configured for different stages of your development lifecycle.

There are two build types defined by default, debug and release, and you can customize them and create additional build types.

The default debug build type enables debug options and signs the APK with the debug key, while the release build type is not debuggable and can be configured to shrink, obfuscate, and sign your APK with a release key for distribution.

See configuring build types for more information.

Public properties

isCrunchPngs

var isCrunchPngsBoolean?

Whether to crunch PNGs.

Setting this property to true reduces of PNG resources that are not already optimally compressed. However, this process increases build times.

PNG crunching is enabled by default in the release build type and disabled by default in the debug build type.

isDebuggable

var isDebuggableBoolean

Whether this build type should generate a debuggable apk.

isDefault

var isDefaultBoolean

Whether this product flavor should be selected in Studio by default

isEmbedMicroApp

var isEmbedMicroAppBoolean

Whether a linked Android Wear app should be embedded in variant using this build type.

Wear apps can be linked with the following code:

dependencies {
freeWearApp project(:wear:free') // applies to variant using the free flavor
wearApp project(':wear:base') // applies to all other variants
}

isProfileable

var isProfileableBoolean

Intended to produce an APK that leads to more accurate profiling.

Enabling this option will declare the application as profileable in the AndroidManifest.

Profileable build types will be signed with the default debug signing config if no other signing config is specified.

This option doesn't make sense to combine with isDebuggable=true. If a build type is set to be both debuggable and profileable the build system will log a warning.
