TextResourceFactory

API Documentation:TextResourceFactory

Creates TextResources backed by sources such as strings, files, and archive entries.

Example usages:

def sourcedFromString = resources.text.fromString("some text content")

def sourcedFromFile = resources.text.fromFile("path/to/file.txt")

task someTask {} // assumption: produces a text file and declares it as output
def sourcedFromTask = resources.text.fromFile(someTask)

def sourcedFromArchiveEntry =
  resources.text.fromArchiveEntry("path/to/archive.zip", "path/to/archive/entry.txt")

configurations { someConfig } // assumption: contains a single archive
def sourcedFromConfiguration =
  resources.text.fromArchiveEntry(configurations.someConfig, "path/to/archive/entry.txt")

def sourceFromUri = resources.text.fromUri("https://example.com/resource")

def sourceFromInsecureUri = resources.text.fromInsecureUri("http://example.com/resource")

File based factory methods optionally accept a character encoding. If no encoding is specified, the platform's default encoding is used.
