So I decided to create some lint rules just for fun and - who knows - to use them in my code template :)
I'm struggling with a detail (so I hope):

The given artifact contains a string literal with a package reference ‘android.support.design.widget’ that cannot be safely rewritten. Libraries using reflection such as annotation processors need to be updated manually to add support for androidx.

dependencies {
compileOnly "com.android.tools.lint:lint-api:26.6.3"
testImplementation "com.android.tools.lint:lint-tests:26.6.3"
testImplementation "com.android.tools.lint:lint:26.6.3"
}

If I turn off android.enableJetifier it gets worst. Any idea how to solve it?
Running gradle assemble I get this:

Execution failed for task ':lint-rules:compileDebugKotlin'.

Could not resolve all artifacts for configuration ':lint-rules:debugCompileClasspath'.
Failed to transform artifact 'common.jar (com.android.tools:common:26.6.3)' to match attributes {artifactType=android-classes, >org.gradle.libraryelements=jar, org.gradle.usage=java-runtime}.

Thanks for your time.

Hi there, I'm not exactly sure what could be the problem there. Did you try on a simple/new project from Android Studio? maybe there is some other dependency interfering!

I've found out!
My build gradle was using apply plugin: 'com.android.library' instead of java-library '^^

nice! I'm glad you fixed it :)
