Community Roundup: May 15 – June 15

Check out what's been going on in the Bitrise community lately!

We’re back with a new and slightly longer version of the Community Roundup, everyone! A lot has been going on in the past few weeks — let’s dive in and see what we have in store this time.

Guides and articles

Our first article comes from Krymsan, who wrote a neat guide on putting all your build statuses on your monitor in a neat arrangement. Thank you for the piece, Krymsan.

We also saw an in-depth article about using Bitrise for iOS projects on Murahiro’s blog. Thank you so much for putting this together.

Next up is an article by Tomoki Kobayashi, who wrote about an error he encountered regarding CocoaPods and Bitrise’s caching, including the potential solutions he found. Thank you for sharing this with us, Tomoki.

Next up is an article by Juan Sagasti, titled “Continuous Integration and Deployment of an iOS app with Bitrise”. Awesome piece, Juan — thank you so much for your work.

"Continuous Integration and Deployment of an iOS app with @bitrise", by @jfsagasti. #DEVCommunity— Juan Sagasti 🐒 (@jfsagasti) June 5, 2020

This one comes from Nicolas Spinner at StepUp Development, and is titled “Building iOS frameworks with Bitrise”. We love it, Nicolas — great work, and looking forward to any future articles.

Our first article is about how to build iOS frameworks with @bitrise for Continuous Integration:— StepUp Development (@su_development) June 10, 2020

While this one's not exclusively about Bitrise, we do want to give a huge shoutout to Artur Rymarz, who wrote a piece in which he compared all the CI/CD solutions out there — and chose us as his recommended one out of them all. It’s an honor, Artur. Thank you so much.

📝 New Article: Continuous Integration and Delivery

Felt like writing a little bit about CI/CD tools and giving my opinion about some of of them. What tool is your favourite? Mine is
@bitrise 🔥— Artur Rymarz (@artrmzx) June 1, 2020

Ch3cooh, one of our Writers’ Program members, also wrote a quick note about a little trouble he ran into regarding IPA files built with Xcode 11.5 on Bitrise. Luckily, he seems to have found an easy solution — quick as always! Thank you for sharing this with us.

Bitriseで Xcode 11.5を使ってビルドしたIPAファイルが App Store Connect に拒否される - 酢ろぐ!— さくさん (@ch3cooh) June 2, 2020

This one comes from Ryuta over on Classmethod, and is a thorough guide on linking your Github organization’s repo to your Bitrise account. We’re always happy to see articles like these pop up — thank you so much.

#DevelopersIO BitriseでGitHub OrganizationのRepositoryを連携してみた— クラスメソッド&Developers.IO (@classmethod) June 6, 2020

We also saw a deck from Task Nagashige about using Bitrise for Flutter projects — thank you so much for speaking about us, and for sharing the presentation.

Bitriseを使ったFlutterのCI/CDの話をしました!#鹿児島mk #bitrise— くすたん🦔🚒エンジニアの蝟 (@qst_exe) May 29, 2020

Last but not least, here is an article about building a Mac Catalyst app with Bitrise from Cathandnya, one of our most active contributors in the past months, and another one of our Writers’ Program members. Thank you for another great one.

Before we move on, we also have some great decks from our latest online Japanese Bitrise User Group — thank you, everyone, for joining us, and for the amazing presentations. You’re the best!

Tweets and mentions

Our first mention comes from NabeCott, who just started using us for his personal projects as well — glad to have you on board here, too, Nabe. Let us know how it goes.

仕事でbitrise触ること多かったからプライベートでも使い始めた— なべ (@NabeCott) May 15, 2020

This one comes from Joe Birch, who appeared on our Mobile DevOps is a Thing podcast’s last episode as our special guest. We had a lovely time chatting with you, Joe — thanks for coming, and hope to see you again soon!

Was great to chat with @bitrise about working remotely and mobile DevOps 🥳 Check out the episode here 👇— Joe Birch (@hitherejoe) May 21, 2020

Next up is a tweet by Kenta Kase, who talked a bit about why he thinks Bitrise is so special. It’s always nice to hear how much you love the platform — thank you for your continued support.

Bitriseが素晴らしいと思う理由の一つがVMにどういうツールがプリイン済みなのかgithubで公開してくれてるところ。しかも、このログ自体も自動生成されていて、その方法も公開してくれている— Kenta.Kase (@Kesin11) May 22, 2020

Bitrise does tend to surprise people with how easy it is to use — so it was with Tetsuya, who was setting up a release pipeline, and he realized he could do it all simply through Bitrise. Thanks for the shoutout, Tetsuya.

fastlane + Bitrise で release pipeline 組もうとしたけど、Bitrise だけで十分なことに気がついた— tetsuya ☕️ (@tetsuya) May 23, 2020

No Roundup is complete without our famous footwear making an appearance. This time, it's The_Mijara who rocked the Bitrise socks on this picture, right next to some lovely scenery. So glad you love them so much!

#Bitrise からもらった靴下が可愛いから履いてるよ🧦— ミジャラ (@the_mijara) May 24, 2020

Christian Mitteldorf also tweeted about us not so long ago, as a response to a question by Mustafa. We’re glad to hear it’s all running so smoothly, Christian — thanks for the shoutout.

I use @bitrise and every time I push to master it builds and sends out on TestFlight. That works so super great! 😍— Christian Mitteldorf 🛫🇦🇺 (@cmitteldorf) May 24, 2020

Here’s another awesome shoutout we saw, this time, thanks to Andrea Sciamanna. In these two tweets, not only did he recommend us for being a comprehensive tool that’s pretty cheap to use, but also commented on how easy it is to get started with us — we couldn’t be more grateful to enthusiastic fans like you, Andrea. Thank you so much.

You can run a full CI/CD (that is, testing, building, and deployment) for a cheap price (when not for free) with @bitrise— Andrea Sciamanna (@sciamannikoo) May 25, 2020
Exactly as they wrote!

With zero knowledge of mobile development, it took me zero effort to connect a private repo on a self-hosted gitlab server and get a fully working pipeline.

Tweaking came later and it was quite fun.
Never saw a service that easy to configure.— Andrea Sciamanna (@sciamannikoo)

Call us “The Fastest Setup in the West”. Or, well, the East, too. Anywhere, really. We’re happy to be held in such high regards — thank you for the kind words, Lee!

Try its probably the fastest setup I have ever seen.— Lee Higgins (@Depthperpixel) May 27, 2020

This one is from Andrés Sandoval, who (along with sharing our article on fan-out builds) gave us a shoutout for being easy to set up and maintain, and for being the best choice out there for CI/CD in general.

Hi Carlos, I think so because It's pretty easy to set up and maintain. GitHub Actions it's also good for CI.— Andrés (@Andre__Sand) May 28, 2020

David Everlöf also recommended us for being great and having awesome support — we’re sorry to see circumstances have changed and you’re not able to be with us at the moment, but we’re sure we’ll see you again in the future.

Tried Bitrise? Their support was awesome when I used them. Tough I don’t use them professionally anymore (but that’s not my choice).— David Everlöf (@deverlof) May 30, 2020

Next is a tweet from Eric Ampire, who just started using us, and found the platform really interesting. Thank you for giving us a go — let us know how it’s been going since, Eric!

Today I have tried to use @bitrise in order to build, test and publishing some Android Apps on @GooglePlay from my GitHub repository, Seriously I find it very interesting— 𝔼𝕣𝕚𝕔 𝔸𝕞𝕡𝕚𝕣𝕖 (@eric_ampire) June 1, 2020

This one comes from Graypain, who talked a bit about how good a CI choice Bitrise is for Flutter, and how easy it is to build on the platform. So great to hear you think so, Graypain — thank you for the shoutout.

Flutter 製のプロダクトの CI ツールであれば、Bitrise が良さげです。

プロダクトを選択するだけで自動的に Flutter 製のプロダクトだと判断してくれるので、だいぶ構築が楽です。(iOS の場合はプラスアルファの対応が必要ですが・・・)— grayprain (@grayprain)

Qmihara also had some nice thoughts to share about how responsive we were with our support — we’re glad to hear, and we’re happy to see it all turned out great.

bitrise のことで困ったことがあったのでチャットで質問したら爆速で回答が返ってきて解決した。ありがたい。— 💸 (@qmihara) June 3, 2020

Here’s one that’s short but sweet — and we absolutely love it. “Bitrise is pretty dang cool”, as Aura put it. You're pretty dang cool, too! 😉

.@Bitrise is pretty dang cool.— aura | liz ♡ (@auraswap) June 3, 2020

A blast from the past: Okuto Oyama posted this picture of himself, wearing our 2018 Tokyo Bitrise t-shirt. It’s great to see you’re still rocking this — hope to have many other ones like this in the future, too.

これはBitriseのTシャツです— やまのく / Okuto Oyama (@yamanoku) June 7, 2020

Next up is a tweet by Peter Steinberger, who gave us quite a praise, alluding to the idea that not even the titans of the industry can create anything as cool and mobile-focused as Bitrise. Thank you for your continued support, Peter.

I doubt Apple can give us something that’s better than Buildkite or Bitrise. And who needs a CI that only supports Apple, we're in a multi-OS world.— Peter Steinberger (@steipete) June 8, 2020

Maciej Malak also tweeted about us this past week, sharing our last community roundup, and encouraging others to check out his awesome posts and reach out to him. We’re grateful to have fans such as you, Maciej — thank you, again.

And I'm also there. Check out my post about Bitrise Android CI optimisations and let me know if you need more insights ;)— Maciej (@MonkeyDevsPl) June 10, 2020

Next is a reply to a tweet about one of the articles we saw in one of the last Roundups, by Martin Barreteo. It wasn’t enough that Martin wrote such a great article, he even gave us a huge shoutout for being so easy to use and mobile-focused. Thank you again, Martin.

Thanks for sharing! Bitrise is super easy to setup and it helps us a lot, specially for mobile projects! 💪— Martin Barreto (@mtnBarreto) June 10, 2020

Károly Kass has been one of our closest followers when it comes to the past few weeks — we saw him at all of the online events, and it looks like he’s also well on his way with his first Bitrise setup. Cheers, Károly!

#Android first-app & #bitrise first build completed.
I don't understand the whole thing yet. Something happened. 🤠
But I'm glad that this is there:

Ivan Zotov also gave us a huge shoutout, calling us “the best CI/CD” he ever used. Glad you’re so happy with Bitrise, Ivan. Thank you for the kind words.

The best CI/CD I ever used – @bitrise, works like a magic for React Native projects. It has an integration with Firebase TestLab that makes it really simple to set up e2e tests on real devices— Ivan Zotov (@ivanzotov) June 13, 2020

This one comes from Masahiro Aoki, who saw a significantly decreased build time after he started using Bitrise. Awesome job, Masahiro!

Bitriseでも34分から18分に短縮できた。これすげぇ— Masahiro Aoki (@rafe_kun) June 14, 2020

We were super happy to see a submission to IOSDC Japan 2020 by Tamappe, who is planning on talking about — you guessed it — Bitrise! We’re looking forward to it, Tamappe!

Done[email protected]エンジニア見習い (@tamapppe) June 14, 2020

Last but not least, a tweet from Kourin1996, who talked a bit about just how convenient it is to use Bitrise, as it makes things way easier. Glad to see you’re having a great time with us.

Bitrise便利すぎる、ReactNativeのリポを指定して鍵ファイルアップロードして環境変数を2,3設定したら、push後に自動でapkファイル吐くフローができてた— こうりん (@Kourin1996) June 14, 2020

Before we go, we wanted to say thank you to all of the folks who joined us at our last online BUGs (videos available for both international and Japanese) and to those who spoke at our events. We know everyone is still adjusting to the changes that happened to the way we work, and we appreciate just how well-received our online webinars have been lately. Hope to see you at the next ones (international and Japanese alike)!

That’s it for this time, folks . If you have any great experiences or stories about using Bitrise, or would just love to share the progress you’re making on your current project with us, don't forget to do so on social media, or join our Writers' and Speakers' programs, and you might see yourself in our next set of highlights. Until then — happy building!
