Almost all of these issues could be solved by just using gradle-download-task the right way instead of extending the plugin. I have collected a number of example build scripts for these issues over the last months and I thought it would be good idea to summarize them here.

<![CDATA[ECMAScript 6/7 on the JVM with TypeScript and Vert.x]]>Following the latest release of Vert.x 3.2 I’ve just uploaded a new version of vertx-lang-typescript 1.1.0. The library adds TypeScript support to Vert.x 3. TypeScript is a programming language that compiles to JavaScript. It supports the ECMAScript 6 (ECMAScript 2015, ES6) standard and also a few parts of ECMAScript 7 (ES7) already.

<![CDATA[Making the new Vert.x 3.0 website]]>Vert.x is a toolkit for building reactive applications on the Java Virtual Machine. The project maintainers are currently working hard to get the new version 3.0 out. Tim Fox, the original creator of Vert.x and one of its core developers, was recently looking for someone to redesign the Vert.x website. I offered to take over the job! I consider this an opportunity to give something back to the great Vert.x community!

<![CDATA[gradle-download-task: download files with progress]]>I really like how Gradle displays progress while it’s fetching artifacts from Maven repositories, but I was always wondering why you cannot use the same functionality when you’re downloading arbitrary files in your build script. You can of course use Ant’s download task to fetch files, but it does not display progress information. Since I couldn’t find a solution on the Internet I decided to write a plugin.

<![CDATA[Generating citations and bibliographies with CSL and citeproc-java]]>I was recently writing a scientific document with AsciiDoc. As usual my toolchain was AsciiDoc → DocBook → FO → PDF. It really worked quite well until I came to the point where manually adding citations and editing the bibliography by hand became really complex and I suddenly found myself yearning for more automation.

<![CDATA[5 anti-spam measures for phpBB 3.0]]>phpBB is an open-source forum software that is very popular and widely used. This makes it an ideal target for spammers. The phpBB developers therefore implemented an improved Captcha in version 3.0. But spammers have already adapted to this and have implemented improved bots that are able to break the new Captcha and to automatically create junk posts. In the following I will describe five anti-spam measures that effectively reduce spam in every phpBB 3.x instance. The main goal of these measures is to block as many spam posts as possible without affecting normal forum users.
