Adding a Kiln Repository

If your repository lives in Kiln, you can connect to it via 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

Go to Kiln and find the repository you would like to connect with buddybuild. Within the main page of that repository, look to the top-right for the Clone URL. Click on the dropdown menu and select SSH.

Highlight and copy the SSH clone URL.

Warning

Private git submodules and private cocoapods

If your project depends on any code in other private git repositories, the SSH key needs to be added to those repositories 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.
