Introducing “Saydle 🔊” – A Real-time Gradle Audio Notification Script for Mac OS

Saydle 🔊 is a Wrapper for the Gradle Wrapper (gradlew) that notifies you via the Mac OS¬†say¬†command whether a task failed or succeeded.


Knowing when a Gradle build is done is super helpful when there are long running tasks. This allows you to be notified instead of checking the terminal.

How does it work?

  • Instead of using ./gradlew, use ./saydlew instead. That’s it!
  • Example: ./saydlew app:assembleDebug
