Sign up with GitHub

When you sign up to buddybuild via GitHub, you allow buddybuild to access your app’s source code. Buddybuild associates with your repository and builds your app every time a commit is pushed, by you or your team. This ensures that you always have a green build that you can deploy to your testers.

Note

Using Beanstalk, Gitolite, TFS or any other git server?

Follow the instructions here to get started.

Caution

Buddybuild rejects connecting to repositories via HTTPS that are provisioned with self-signed certificates.

Using a self-signed certificate could make it possible for someone to spoof your repository and inject malicious code into your builds.

Let’s get started:

  1. Visit the buddybuild Sign up page:

    The Sign up screen

  2. The GitHub button Click the GitHub button.

  3. If you are not already signed into GitHub, the GitHub Sign In screen is displayed:

  5. Choose whether to give buddybuild access to All repositories or Only select repositories. Buddybuild recommends that you choose only the repositories that contain your mobile app and its dependencies.

    To select repositories, click the Select repositories field, and start typing the name of a repository; matching repositories appear below the field. You can use the arrow keys, or your pointer, to select a repo. When you select a repo, it appears below the field.

    Repeat the repository selection to build up the list of repositories that buddybuild should access. To remove a repository from the list, click the X icon to the right of the repository to be removed.

  6. The Install button on GitHub Click the Install button to complete the connection to buddybuild.

That’s it! You’re now connected to buddybuild!
