How to import Patio Library in my Project


I found this library in android-arsenal that would fit perfect in my project.

I tried to import like this:

repositories {
   maven {
        url ""

dependencies {
    compile 'com.github.asantibanez:Patio:d11e20326e'

But I got a error like this

Error:A problem occurred configuring project ':app'.
> Artifact 'Patio.jar (com.github.asantibanez:Patio:d11e20326e)' not found.
  Searched in the following locations:

Another thing that I tried was to import by downloading the project zip, and importing it to my project by: File > Import Module. ( Patio-Master folder )

But I got a Gradle error.

Error:(16, 0) Gradle DSL method not found: 'runProguard()'
Possible causes:<ul><li>The project 'dealerbook' may be using a version of Gradle that does not contain the method.
<a href="open.wrapper.file">Open Gradle wrapper file</a></li><li>The build file may be missing a Gradle plugin.
<a href="apply.gradle.plugin">Apply Gradle plugin</a></li>

Is there a better/right way to import it to my project?

  7. Change the follow line to the same as your project build.gradle file

buildToolsVersion "21.1.2"
  1. Comment the follow line in Patio gradle file
applicationId ""
  1. Go to File > Project Structure > Dependences
  2. Click on the (left|plus|add) button on the left bottom
  3. Select module dependence
  4. Find Patio in it.
  5. Now you’r done to use Patio
