Bitrise integration

Are you looking for a simple way to automate your development cycle?

If so, probably Bitrise.io is the solution you need.

What it is?

Bitrise.io is a Mobile Continuous Integration and Delivery system specially designed for iOS and Android native Apps, with dozens of integrations for your favourite services, one of them, of course, is Applivery!

Bitrise.io will help you automatize the whole development cycle, detecting your commit/push to your repository and launching builds with specific workflows you can customize as lego pieces to build, sign, modify and even deploy your builds automatically.

The Applivery Step for Bitrise.io will allow you to automatically deploy new versions to you Applivery account in a very simple and fast way. You’ll also take advantage of the contextual information provided by Bitrise and also easily jump from Applivery to have a look to each build.

How it works?

First of all you have to register an account in Bitrise.io. Once done, you can start syncing your repositories and start building your Apps.

Bitrise.io uses Workflows to define what actions should be taken while building a new version of your App. By default, they will create an standard workflow according to the technology of your App.

You can place the Applivery Step at the end of your Bitrise.io workflow so they will deploy the package of your APp to Applivery account automatically. To do so, just follow the next steps:

Step 1

Login into you Bitrise.io account. You’ll see your existing Apps. If you still don’t have one, click + Add New App button to sync your Bitbucket, GitHub or GitLab repository, following the instructions.

Step 2

Select the App where you want to integrate Applivery. Once inside, select the Workflow tab.

Step 3 - Add Applivery deploy step

Bitrise.io allows yo to have multiple Workfloes for the same App. If you have more than the default one, select the one you want to integrate Applivery into. If not, you’ll see the primary workflow already selected.

Now click the + button at the very end of the workflow. A right-side panel will be opened for you to select Applivery’s Bitrise step. You can select the #deploy category or type “applivery” in the search box.

Once found, click the “Add to Workflow” green button.

Step 4 – Get you Applivery App Token

Now it’s time to link your Bitrise.io App with your Applivery App. To do so, you’ll need your Applivery App Token. (Read more about how to get your App Token)

Step 5 – Setup your Applivery App Token in your Bitrise project.

We are almost done. Now it’s time to paste your Applivery App Token in Bitrise.io

Go to the top menu of the Bitrise.io dashboard and select the “Secrets” menu option. Click the “Add New” button and type APPLIVERY_APP_TOKEN in the left side input form and paste your Applivery App Token in the right one and click Save.

Step 6 - Build and deploy

And that’s it! Your project is now connected and your Bitrise.io App is pointing to your Applivery App. To test if everything is working properly just go to your Bitrise.io App and click the “Start/Schedule a build” button and let the magic happen!
