I'm buiding a Flutter Android app with AppCenter build.

I have the following build script taken from here

#!/usr/bin/env bash
#Place this script in project/android/app/
cd ..
# fail if any command fails
set -e
# debug log
set -x
cd ..
git clone -b dev https://github.com/flutter/flutter.git
export PATH=`pwd`/flutter/bin:$PATH
flutter doctor
echo "Installed flutter to `pwd`/flutter"
flutter build apk --release
#copy the APK where AppCenter will find it
mkdir -p android/app/build/outputs/apk/; mv build/app/outputs/apk/release/app-release.apk $_

Here is an excerpt of the build log:

    You are building a fat APK that includes binaries for android-arm, android-arm64.
    If you are deploying the app to the Play Store, it's recommended to use app bundles or split the APK to reduce the APK size.
        To generate an app bundle, run:
            flutter build appbundle --target-platform android-arm,android-arm64
            Learn more on: https://developer.android.com/guide/app-bundle
        To split the APKs per ABI, run:
            flutter build apk --target-platform android-arm,android-arm64 --split-per-abi

Looks like AppCenter cannot initialize Gradle. Any suggestions? .gitignore file:

# Android related
#**/android/**/gradle-wrapper.jar
**/android/.gradle
**/android/captures/
#**/android/gradlew
#**/android/gradlew.bat
**/android/local.properties
**/android/**/GeneratedPluginRegistrant.java


Solution 1: mfrischbutter

Is flutter build apk --release working locally? Which build settings you are using in appcenter? Did you updated your .gitignore, like in the tutorial?

Please try to provide some more information. Had a similar problem and solved it by adding the pre-post.sh but it seems you are having a different problem.

Try flutter clean and flutter build. Then try to push and build again.


Solution 2: jasper paardekooper

I was also facing similar issue. An alternative way is just to release an apk to the release section of the appcenter.

Maybe the non-accepted android licenses are slowing down things.. since you're using some android packages..

try

flutter doctor --android-licenses

and accept all licenses, then give another try
