Simplifying dependency management with Grape

Your nicely written and useful script can solve many interesting problems with the help of third-party libraries, and as long as it resides on your machine and has all the dependencies in place, it will work perfectly. However, at the point when you need to share it with your colleagues or community, you will realize that small and concise code requires several megabytes of additional libraries to be passed together with the script in order to make it work. Luckily, Groovy has a solution for that called Grape.

In this recipe, we will show you how to declare and automatically load Groovy script dependencies with the help of the wonderful Grape tool, which is integrated into Groovy.
