I’m trying to use Proguard, but I cannot even build it from the repository.
I cloned the proguard and proguard-core repositories, and launched the
./gradlew --include-build=…/proguard-core assemble
command, but the build fails, and I cannot find any documentation as to why.
In the manual, it says that one only needs a Java 8 JDK installed and the two repos to build proguard, but it doesn’t work out of the box.
I see in the output that Task :base:compileJava FAILED, with details related to Kotlin.
I’m completely new to Proguard or even Gradle or Kotlin, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
