January has come and gone in the blink of an eye. You know what they say — time flies when you’re having fun, and we had a ton of fun this month, all thanks to you. This said, we have arrived at the last community roundup of January, so let’s take a look at all the things that have been happening this last week!
Article of the week
YUMEMI's 星野 恵瑠 published an article this week (in Japanese) about the process of creating an iOS app using Bitrise. The piece includes a detailed description of the necessary steps, and has plenty of valuable information for all the developers out there just starting out in the world of CI/CD. Thank you for all the work you put into this — we really appreciate it! 🙏
State of App Development 2018: community responses
We also saw the release of our State of App Development in 2018 article this week, which didn't only spark lots of exciting discussions, but also gave us a better view on just what our fans were thinking about where we are, and where we’re headed.
Out of the many kind words we’ve received, our first one is that of Reddit user Banjer, who has been using the platform for six months, and sent a heartfelt cheers our way. Thank you for your continued support, Banjer — hope your build turned out great! 🚀
Horatiocain also shared his love for the platform and its support, saying he “Couldn’t recommend it enough”. Words like these mean a lot to us, so thank you for them — and thank you for choosing Bitrise! 👍
Tweets of the week
We start out this week’s tweets with Jessy Hanzo, who shared a trusty way of requesting a Bitrise build using Apple Shortcuts. Glad to see just how much fun you’re having, Jessy!
Amy Lee also posted her own shortcuts in response to Jessy's tweet. Thanks for sharing these, Amy!
Next up, we have a tweet from Valentin, a French user of ours who recommended us to one of his friends as the best solution for compiling apps on iOS. We’re happy to see you’re satisfied with our platform, Valentin!
One of our Japanese fans, Jackdanelage27, also tweeted about Bitrise, talking about just how useful it is to be able to run multiple builds in parallel. Thanks you for the kind words!
ただBitriseは並列でビルドできるからその間に他の開発もできるでfastlaneはそうではない。— きん (@jackdanielage27) January 30, 2019
Goodies of the week
PJ from Melbourne has shared a React Native Bitrise CI/CD sample with Storybook that relies on Bitrise. Awesome stuff, PJ — we know that this may prove useful to a lot of devs! 👏
Full CI/CD sample workflows below using Bitrise to deploy a React Native app to Apple Store & Google Play. Also with a barebones Storybook UI setup. #reactnative @bitrise @storybookjs https://t.co/GZR37d979n— PJ (@praveenj1979) February 2, 2019
We also want to give a shoutout to Jhomlala, a Reddit user who has created an open source weather application using Flutter and Bitrise last week. Amazing work, Jhomlala! 🏆
That's it for now, folks! As an end-of-the-month treat, we have something that is bound to leave you speechless: our office party cake, shared by Ribizli Édesműhely, an amazing bakery in Budapest, Hungary. Thank you for this delicious work of art, which with we would like to wish everyone a lovely next week. Until next time!
