Adding a GitHub Repository

If your repository lives in GitHub, you can connect your repository automatically, or connect via SSH if you prefer.

If you prefer SSH, buddybuild will automatically generate a secure SSH key for you to install into your source control system. Buddybuild will use this key to clone your repository.

Let’s get started!

Step 1: Enter the SSH Git Clone URL

Within the main page of your repository, look for the green Clone or Download button and click it to reveal a dropdown window. Click on Use SSH.

With SSH selected, copy the SSH URL by clicking the copy to clipboard button.

Private git submodules and private cocoapods

If your project depends on any code in other private git repos, the ssh key will need to be added to those repos as well.

Navigate back to buddybuild and click on the Build button.


Buddybuild will checkout your project code and kick off a simulator build. The build should finish within a few seconds.

That’s it. You’re now connected to buddybuild. The next step is to invite testers to try out your App.
