  • Groovy 🎷 Cheat Sheet - 01 Say "Hello" from Groovy
    This time, I visited Groovy. Given my biased first impression about Java and the JVM, I wasn't too exited! But I couldn't have been more wrong! 😁. - Source: / 4 months ago
  • Android Studio on Devuan 4: Install
    The default programming language is Kotlin instead of Java. Also, Build configuration language is nowadays Kotlin DSL (build.gradle.kts) instead of Groovy DSL (build.gradle), the past default. - Source: / 12 months ago
  • Rust For JavaScript Developers Ltd. Received a Cease and Desist From Oracle Due to JavaScript Trademark
    There are languages that are more like "script versions of java", lately including java itself - you can run simple .java stuff directly with a shebang line now - but things like Beanshell of yore and Groovy are far more java-like than javascript. Source: about 1 year ago
  • How can I build a FL stack using Apache Groovy and Apache Wayang?
    Install Groovy: To use Groovy, you'll need to first install it. You can find the installation instructions on the Groovy website ( Source: over 1 year ago
  • [Q] Which of the companies listed still use Groovy?
    On a lot of big companies are listed which use(d) Groovy. Is this still current? E.g. Netflix, ... Source: over 1 year ago
  • This feels illegal.
    If you want the power of JAVA but the feel of PYTHON, try Groovy ( . Basically a scripting lang for JVM but can be dynamically/statically compiled and is 100% compatible with all JAVA libs but looks like Python. Source: almost 2 years ago
  • Brian Goetz: Paving the On-Ramp (To Java)
    Doesn't Groovy ( achieve much of this? I remember being taught with it at university for some time before they introduced Java. With Groovy you don't need the class or main method, and can have a program which is just `println "Hello world!"`. - Source: Hacker News / almost 2 years ago
  • I think this is the reason programmers are stressed.
    You do realize that Groovy solves this, right? Source: about 2 years ago
  • Why should I use Java for this?
    Try Groovy. It runs in the JVM. Compiles straight Java. Eliminates lots of boilerplate. It uses a bunch of Java libraries under the hood. Source: about 2 years ago
  • First Steps Developing Custom Gradle Plugins
    Not long ago Gradle scared me a lot 👻 ... Maybe it was because of Groovy? 😱. - Source: / about 2 years ago
  • Using Cucumber and Spock for API test Automation — What Benefits Can You Expect?
    Spock is a testing ground. Some would even call it "a language built on top of Groovy." On another project, where I was acting as an automator, I used Spock. As I previously stated, the execution scripts are separate from implementing each construct in Cucumber. This produces understandable scripts, although it’s time-consuming. Because of this, when writing an implementation, this strategy may be impractical. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • What language for Software Engineering?
    Maybe start with Groovy. It's interactive and has a lot of nice features to explore. Most features are optional, so you can get started with simple examples and try out new features as you learn them. It's much more similar to Kotlin, Java and C# than Python is. Source: over 2 years ago
  • Basics of CI/CD
    Jenkins. One of the most demanded CI/CD tools in the world. It has become so popular because of its open-source policy. So, you don't have to pay anything. Jenkins allows imperatively describing build pipelines with Groovy. On the one hand, it provides more flexibility. But on the other hand, it requires a greater competence level. - Source: / over 2 years ago
  • Debating on what hub to move to
    Automation had to happen first, and from my researches, Hubitat Elevation (HE) was the first audition. Primarily because it also uses the groovy, and the custom ecobee drivers and apps that improved my ST experience immensely are also available for HE. Source: about 3 years ago
  • How to validate your Jenkinsfile locally before committing
    Scripted Syntax: The traditional way to write pipelines. This option strictly uses Apache Groovy Lang syntax to declare every step of the pipeline. - Source: / over 3 years ago
