Both versions have benefitted from strong involvement from Square, Google, and other contributors.
Dagger is currently in active development, primarily internally at Google, with regular pushes to the open-source community. Snapshot releases are auto-deployed to sonatype's central maven repository on a clean build with the version
You can find the dagger documentation here which has extended usage instructions and other useful information. Substantial usage information can be found in the API documentation.
You can also learn more from the original proposal, this talk by Greg Kick, and on the email@example.com mailing list.
You will need to include the
dagger-2.0.1.jar in your application's runtime. In order to activate code generation and generate implementations to manage your graph you will need to include
dagger-compiler-2.0.1.jar in your build at compile time.
In a Maven project, include the
dagger artifact in the dependencies section of your
pom.xml and the
dagger-compiler artifact as either an
<dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.google.dagger</groupId> <artifactId>dagger</artifactId> <version>2.0.1</version> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId>com.google.dagger</groupId> <artifactId>dagger-compiler</artifactId> <version>2.0.1</version> <optional>true</optional> </dependency> </dependencies>
If you use the beta
dagger-producers extension (which supplies parallelizable execution graphs), then add this to your maven configuration:
<dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>com.google.dagger</groupId> <artifactId>dagger-producers</artifactId> <version>2.0-beta</version> </dependency> </dependencies>
If you do not use maven, gradle, ivy, or other build systems that consume maven-style binary artifacts, they can be downloaded directly via the Maven Central Repository.
Developer snapshots are available from Sonatype's snapshot repository, and are built on a clean build of the GitHub project's master branch.
