Apply Plugin not working in gradle with NDK

I am trying to add realm to my app. Their documentation states that I need to add class path dependency to the project level build.gradle file. And Apply the realm-android plugin to the top application application level build.gradle file. (https://realm.io/docs/java/latest/)

I did that but I am getting this error:

Error:(2, 0) 'com.android.application' or 'com.android.library' plugin required.


My project gradle:

buildscript {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle-experimental:0.7.0-alpha4'
classpath "io.realm:realm-gradle-plugin:1.1.1"
}
}

allprojects {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
}


My app gradle uses NDK:

apply plugin: 'com.android.model.application'
apply plugin: 'realm-android'


Properties properties = new Properties()
properties.load(project.rootProject.file('local.properties').newDataInputStream())
def superpowered_sdk_path = properties.getProperty('superpowered.dir')

model {
repositories {
libs(PrebuiltLibraries) {
superpowered { // this is where you declare the "superpowered" static library
headers.srcDir "${superpowered_sdk_path}"
binaries.withType(StaticLibraryBinary) { // attaching library files to each platform
def platformName = targetPlatform.getName()
if (platformName == "armeabi-v7a") {
staticLibraryFile = file("${superpowered_sdk_path}/libSuperpoweredAndroidARM.a")
} else if (platformName == "arm64-v8a") {
staticLibraryFile = file("${superpowered_sdk_path}/libSuperpoweredAndroidARM64.a")
} else if (platformName == "x86") {
staticLibraryFile = file("${superpowered_sdk_path}/libSuperpoweredAndroidX86.a")
} else if (platformName == "x86_64") {
staticLibraryFile = file("${superpowered_sdk_path}/libSuperpoweredAndroidX86_64.a")
}
}
}
}
}

android { // main settings for your application
compileSdkVersion = 23
buildToolsVersion = "23.0.2"


defaultConfig {
applicationId "com.superpowered.crossexample"
minSdkVersion.apiLevel = 16 // more than 95% of all active Android devices
targetSdkVersion.apiLevel = 23
versionCode 1
versionName "1.0"
}
}

android.ndk { // your application's native layer parameters
moduleName = "SuperpoweredExample"
platformVersion = 16
stl = "c++_static"
CFlags.addAll(["-O3", "-fsigned-char"]) // full optimization, char data type is signed
cppFlags.addAll(["-fsigned-char", "-I${superpowered_sdk_path}".toString()])
ldLibs.addAll(["log", "android", "OpenSLES"]) // load these libraries: log, android, OpenSL ES (for audio)
abiFilters.addAll(["armeabi-v7a", "arm64-v8a", "x86", "x86_64"]) // these platforms cover 99% percent of all Android devices
}

android.sources.main.jni {
source {
srcDir "jni"
srcDir "${superpowered_sdk_path}/AndroidIO"
}
dependencies {
library "superpowered" linkage "static" // this is where you attach the "superpowered" static library to your app
}
}
}

dependencies {
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:23.4.0'
compile 'com.facebook.fresco:fresco:0.12.0'
compile 'com.android.support:design:23.4.0'
}

Answer

It looks like you are using the experimental plugin? apply plugin: 'com.android.model.application'. Is that correct?

Realm currently doesn't work with the experimental plugin. See https://github.com/realm/realm-java/issues/2539
