Groovy Question

Groovy - use Grape to download documentation and sources

It's possible to use Grape to download a dependency from Maven central:

@Grab(group='org.apache.commons', module='commons-lang3', version='3.4')


Specifying a
type
of
jar
within the
Grab
annotation does the same thing:

@Grab(group='org.apache.commons', module='commons-lang3', version='3.4', type='jar')


and according to the javadoc, the value of
type
can also be
javadoc
and
sources
, however trying the following in IntelliJ:

@Grab(group='org.apache.commons', module='commons-lang3', version='3.4', type = 'sources')


results in:

org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
General error during conversion: Error grabbing Grapes -- [download failed: org.apache.commons#commons-lang3;3.4!commons-lang3.sources]

java.lang.RuntimeException: Error grabbing Grapes -- [download failed: org.apache.commons#commons-lang3;3.4!commons-lang3.sources]

Eclipse gives a similar error. So is there a a way to use Grape to download sources/javadoc when editing a groovy script in an IDE?

Answer

The doc you link to also mentions the possibility of using the classifier attribute, which seems to work better (Grape will indeed grab the corresponding jars):

@Grab(group='org.apache.commons', module='commons-lang3', version='3.4', classifier='sources')

However, it looks like Grape support in Idea is incomplete. In order for Idea to use the grabbed packages, you need to place your cursor on the @Grab annotation, press alt-enter and grab the artifacts manually. You could then copy them to module libraries from the projet structure's settings. That seems to do it for me, although I also feel it defies the whole point of using Grape...
