Snapshot versions

Right now, OpenRewrite does a full release once every 2-4 weeks. Between those releases, recipes are consistently being added or changed to meet the needs of our users. For many people, it's fine to wait until a new release to get access to these new features or recipes. Others, however, would like to have access right away.
This guide will provide you with instructions on how to configure your project to access these "snapshot versions" so you can get updates in real time.

Gradle instructions

To utilize snapshot versions in Gradle projects, you'll need to make the following changes to your build.gradle file:
  • Update your repositories section to include the location of the OpenRewrite snapshots:
repositories {
// Possibly other repositories such as mavenCentral()
// ...
maven {
url = uri("https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots/")
}
}
  • Update your version numbers to use latest.integration (you can also specify a specific release such as 1.18<!-- DO NOT BUMP -->.0-SNAPSHOT instead if you like):
dependencies {
rewrite platform("org.openrewrite.recipe:rewrite-recipe-bom:latest.integration")
}

Maven instructions

To utilize snapshot versions in Maven projects, you'll need to make the following changes to your pom.xml file:
  • Update your repositories section to include the location of the OpenRewrite snapshots:
<repositories>
<!-- Possibly other repositories -->
<!-- ... -->
<repository>
<id>rewrite-snapshots</id>
<url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url>
</repository>
</repositories>
<pluginRepositories>
<pluginRepository>
<id>rewrite-snapshots</id>
<url>https://oss.sonatype.org/content/repositories/snapshots</url>
</pluginRepository>
</pluginRepositories>
  • Update the version numbers of the rewrite-maven-plugin and all of its dependencies to use the latest snapshot versions. Snapshot versions are 1 minor version ahead of the latest release with -SNAPSHOT added to the end. For instance, if the latest release is 2.1.2, the snapshot version would be 2.2.0-SNAPSHOT:
<build>
<plugins>
<plugin>
<groupId>org.openrewrite.maven</groupId>
<artifactId>rewrite-maven-plugin</artifactId>
<version>5.23.1</version>
<configuration>
<activeRecipes>
<recipe>org.openrewrite.github.SetupJavaUpgradeJavaVersion</recipe>
</activeRecipes>
</configuration>
<dependencies>
<dependency>
<groupId>org.openrewrite.recipe</groupId>
<artifactId>rewrite-github-actions</artifactId>
<version>2.2.0-SNAPSHOT</version>

</dependencies>
</plugin>
</plugins>
</build>
