Android Ignoring build variant


Example

For some reasons you may want to ignore your build variants. For example: you have 'mock' product flavour and you use it only for debug purposes, such as unit/instrumentation tests.

Let's ignore mockRelease variant from our project. Open build.gradle file and write:

    // Remove mockRelease as it's not needed.
    android.variantFilter { variant ->
        if (variant.buildType.name.equals('release') && variant.getFlavors().get(0).name.equals('mock')) {
            variant.setIgnore(true);
        }
    }
