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.
Head over to dashboard, visit Select source and choose SSH.
Paste the SSH URL you copied into the Git clone URL field.
Step 2: Add the SSH Key to Your Kiln Account
Highlight and copy the generated SSH key.
Navigate to your Kiln Account by first selecting your account photo, and then select SSH Keys.
Next, select Add a New Key.
Paste the copied SSH key into the Public Key field and enter Buddybuild as the name.
Next, click Save Key.
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.
