How to create a library on Github and use it through gradle dependencies in Android Studio

I want to create the library and have access to it through the Internet.
In Android Studio (via Gradle) dependency may be added in this way:

In build.gradle (Module app):

  • Developing a Git library project that's also a submodule of another project
  • Checking out Android source from github
  • How should I structure my project to share classes between an Android client application and a JSP server application?
  • Cannot clone from GitLab in Android Studio via SSH
  • Is there library of git for android
  • Android Studio import project with gradle changes iml files
  • dependencies {
        compile ''
        compile 'com.squareup:otto:1.3.8'
        compile 'com.squareup.picasso:picasso:2.5.2'
        compile 'com.j256.ormlite:ormlite-core:4.48'
        compile 'com.j256.ormlite:ormlite-android:4.48'

    How can I add my own library in this way from github?

  • Cannot install bower packages in my new ASP.NET application
  • What is the difference between 'origin' and the newly created repository in github?
  • How to resume review process after updating pull request at GitHub?
  • Docker: how to build an image from a non-master branch on Github repository
  • Watch for files to change and call git commit when they are new
  • How to download only a working directory of the AOSP source code without the entire repo history?

    Refer Jitpack is best to import your project or libs from Github to gradle

    For more information refer Gabriele Mariotti answer

    To achieve it you have some ways:

    1. publish your library (artifact) in central maven or jcenter.
    2. use a github repo and the jitpack plugin
    3. use a private maven

    The point 2. is very simple.

    Just push your codein github and modify the gradle script in the project where you want to use it.

    Just add this repo tp your build.gradle

    repositories {
            // ...
            maven { url "" }

    and the dependency:

    dependencies {
            compile 'com.github.User:Repo:Tag'

    To publish a library in Central Maven or JCenter, it is very long to explain in an answer. Hovewer you can read these posts:

    • Publish on JCenter

    • Publish on Central Maven. Another blog for Central Maven

    For a quick solution, as the others have said JitPack is probably the way to go. However, if you want to make your library available to a wider audience you should probably add it to jcenter since this is set up by default in Android Studio now. (Previously it was Maven Central.)

    This post gives a detailed walkthrough of how to do it. The following is a summary:

    1. Create the Android library
    2. Test to make sure the library is usable locally
    3. Publish the library on Bintray
    4. Add the library to Jcenter

    Then all people will have to do to use your library is add a one liner to their build.gradle dependencies.
