Android Studio how to run gradle sync manually?


I'm debugging Gradle issues in Android Studio and see references to "Run gradle sync", but I'm not sure how to run this command.

How do I run "Gradle sync" from Android studio or Mac terminal?

The Best Answer is


Android studio should have this button in the toolbar marked "Sync project with Gradle Files"

EDIT: I don't know when it was changed but it now looks like this:

EDIT: This is what it looks like on 3.3.1 enter image description here
OR by going to File -> Sync Project with Gradle Files from the menubar.

WARNING: --recompile-scripts command has been deprecated since gradle's version 5.0. To check your gradle version, run gradle -v.

./gradlew --recompile-scripts

it will do a sync without building anything.

Alternatively, with command line in your root project

./gradlew build

It will sync and build your app, and take longer than just a Gradle sync

To see all available gradle task, use ./gradlew tasks
