building smartdashboard

A student asked me about Gradle with respect to SmartDashboard. I wrote up everything I told him (and much more.)

Sharing on Chief Delphi for anyone who is looking to contribute to SmartDashboard and wondering about Gradle:

Hello, I am a programmer for a team, and we have not used the smartdashboard in the past, and we are also having trouble finding a way to install it, any links for the install???

It’s included in the Eclipse plugins. Go to WPILib in the menu bar and click “Run SmartDashboard”
