Bitrise: Are you looking for a simple but powerful way to automate your mobile development life cycle?
If so, probably Bitrise.io + Applivery is the solution you need.
What is Bitrise.io?
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 does it work?
First of all you have to register an account at 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 - Log-in into your Bitrise.io account
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 - Edit workflow
Select the App where you want to integrate Applivery. Once inside, select the Workflow tab.
Step 3 - Add Applivery deploy step
That’s all! You’ll be automatically redirected back to Applivery and we’ll start sending notifications to your Slack team immediately.
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 the App Token of the target App in Applivery. (Read more about how to get your App Token)
