In order to create FindBugs report for Android projects, you need to create FindBugs tasks and configure them by providing paths to source code, compiled classes and classpath. It can be troublesome since Android projects can have different flavors and build types, thus requiring additional paths to be set. This plugin provides those tasks already configured for you. In addition, the plugin automatically excludes Generated classes from Android databinding library, android resource, Butterknife and Dagger 2. If you want more added to this list or want it configurable, open an issue.
