This section describes how to quickly get started using buddybuild. Overall, the process involves a few steps:

  1. Connect buddybuild to your project’s source control

    Buddybuild supports the follow source control providers:

  2. Choose a repository

    Buddybuild examines your repository and automatically configures builds based on the configuration that you have setup.


    If you have both iOS and Android versions of your app in a single repository, or if you have multiple build targets defined for your iOS app, you need to complete the Quickstart process once for each platform/target.

  3. Invite testers

    This step prepares your app for deployment to your testers. For iOS projects, this involves uploading code signing identities.

Optional additional steps include:

  1. Integrate the buddybuild SDK (iOS or Android)

    The buddybuild SDK adds useful features that makes it easy to gather feedback from your testers, and to collect crash reports.

  2. Auto-versioning (iOS or Android)

    Buddybuild can automatically update the build version, which helps inform your testers when a new version is available.

  3. **Tests (iOS or Android))

    Buddybuild can automatically detect any unit tests included in your project; we have a list of supported frameworks, and instructions for integrating unsupported test frameworks. Unit tests are disabled by default, to ensure that your builds complete as quickly as possible, but you can enable them at any time.
