My Workflow

Are you using Gradle Wrapper in your project? How often do you update it?

Maintaining dependencies up-to-date is regarded as a good practice, and the build system files should be no exception!

The Update Gradle Wrapper Action aims to help keeping Gradle projects on GitHub polished to high standards and to strengthen the software supply chain in the Gradle ecosystem.

As soon as a new Gradle release is available, this action will open a PR to update your Wrapper files.
