Adding a Gitolite Repository
This page explains how to add a Gitolite hosted repository to buddybuild. Let’s get started!
Firstly, if your repository is hosted on a Gitolite server, then you will need to sign in with an email account.
Step 1: Enter the SSH Gitolite clone URL
List your repositories in Gitolite and note the repository name that you would like to add to buddybuild.
Head over to dashboard, visit Select source and choose SSH.
Construct the Gitolite SSH clone URL using the username (typically
gitolite for most Gitolite installations), hostname, and repository
Step 2: Add a buddybuild user to Gitolite
Only a Gitolite admin user can add new users
In order to build your app on our fleet of build machines you will need to create a new user that is authorized to read from your Gitolite repository. When you enter the gitolite clone URL, buddybuild generates an SSH key-pair that securely identifies your account in buddybuild.
Highlight and copy the generated public SSH key.
To add a new Gitolite user named
buddybuild, paste the public SSH key
into the file below, then commit and push the admin changes to your
Step 3: Grant buddybuild access to your Gitolite repository
gitolite-admin/conf/gitolite.conf to grant
read-only access to your repository.
repo my-ios-app R = buddybuild
Automatic buddybuild SDK installation requires read-write access
Granting buddybuild read-write access to your repository gives you the
option of automatically installing the buddybuild SDK at a later
point. To do this, modify your
buddybuild read-write access to your repository.
repo my-ios-app RW = buddybuild
This is an optional step, since with read-only access you can still manually install the buddybuild SDK.
Private git submodules and private cocoapods
If your project depends on any code in other private git repositories, the buddybuild user needs to be added to those repositories as well.
Step 4: Build
Now go back to buddybuild and click on the Build button.
Buddybuild will checkout your project code and kick off a simulator build. That’s it, you’re now connected to buddybuild!
The next step is to invite testers to try out your app.
