It's been a while, but we're back! After the super busy weeks we've had with multiple conferences and a plethora of customer visits, the holiday season is upon us — it only seems appropriate to greet it with a special, mega-roundup of all the great stuff that's been going on in the community. Let those bells jingle!
Articles of the week
If you’re thinking about setting up Danger Swift with Bitrise, look no further: our first article this week is just about that, courtesy of Andrea Stevanato. Thanks for putting this together!
Improve your code reviews with @DangerSystems Swift on @bitrise #iosdev #Swift https://t.co/qaqGxDRSBF— Andrea Stevanato (@andrea_steva) December 5, 2019
We’re always super excited to see new articles in our Writers’ Program, and boy we have a great one for you right here! Our good friend Karol Wrótniak from Droids on Roids wrote an amazing in-depth tutorial about configuring Bitrise workflows for Android projects. Great piece, Karol — thank you for putting so much work into this!
In case you ever encountered the “No shared schemes found for project” error when creating an app in Bitrise, check out this guide from Oimo23 (in Japanese). Sorry for the trouble, Oimo23 — and thanks for writing this!
Next up, we have an article from Aleix Ventayol over at Bugfender, titled "Robust Development with git-flow, Bitbucket Pipelines and Bitrise", which delves into exploring Bitrise quite a bit. Thank you for this great piece, Aleix!

This one comes from Mukesh Jangid, who wrote a great overview for the benefits of using Bitrise and setting up a React Native project in it. Awesome job, Mukesh — hope to see you in our Writers' Program as well!
Our last article this week comes from Kazuma Nagano, who wrote about how their team at Tapple made their workflows run 40-50% faster by utilizing caching (in Japanese). This is definitely a great example of how much caching can help, Kazuma — we're so glad you put this together! Thanks for taking part in our Qiita Advent Calendar — and thank you to all the other folks who have upcoming articles in there!

Goodies of the week
In this section, we wanted to give a shoutout to Simon Rice, who created a Bitrise step for uploading dSYMs for Sentry. Always glad to see our users come up with great stuff like this. Cheers, Simon!
Use @bitrise and want to upload your dSYMs to @getsentry? I’ve created a small build step that wraps around the Sentry CLI & does the uploading for you - feel free to give it a spin at https://t.co/yCVVzuDirX & let me know what you think!— Simon Rice (@_SimonRice) November 29, 2019
Tweets of the week
We’ll start off with a nice compilation about our new Ship feature, which went into open beta just a while ago. We’ve seen some great reception from you all, for which we’re super grateful — keep us updated on your experiences with it, folks!

Ship on Bitrise
申請絡みが楽になりそうだけど、Xcode Archive & Export for iOS(AndroidだとAndroid Build）ステップ使わないとダメなのか…

Our next tweet comes from Sam Debruyn, who recommended us to David Ortinau as a potential new CI/CD solution for 2020 after trying a good number of other ones in the past. Thank you for the kind words, Sam — and David, we’re hoping you’ll give the platform a go. 🚀
Well... You haven't used @bitrise yet. Maybe that's the one for 2020? It's so good that you'll stick with it for 2021 and the years to come 😉😄— Sam (@s_debruyn) November 14, 2019
Next is a tweet from Ymgn_Bass, who expressed his admiration for the roundup — glad you like it… and now you’re on it again! 🎉
ワイ、bitriseの公式ブログにツイートが載る pic.twitter.com/mG45HfmLOI— ﾔﾏｹﾞﾝ (@Ymgn_Bass) November 14, 2019
While we have a pretty big swag-tweet later on in the roundup, we wanted to give a sneak peak of one of our new swags: the Bitrise Reusable Straw! Our good friend Daiki already got a nice pack of them, and tweeted out a nice picture of them. We’re so glad you like them!
By the way, the swags included reusable straw. I think maybe they got inspiration in Taipei. Thanks Akos and @bitrise https://t.co/b8o2yoZssi pic.twitter.com/qz5k5fIQ43— Daiki Matsudate (@d_date) November 14, 2019
Next up is a tweet from Sasa_nss_app, in which he recommended us to susu_susu_. We’d love to help you out as best as we can — hope we can have you on board soon!
Bitrise使って配布するのも良さそう！— 笹のり にゃイッター@400エラー (@sasa_nss_app) November 16, 2019
Next is a quick shoutout from Suwashimizu about the Bitrise CLI being great. That's always great to hear — glad to see you’re having fun with it!
bitrise cliは良いぞ— 諏訪清水@すわぁ (@suwashimizu) November 20, 2019
Our next tweet comes from Ikemura23, who just finished setting up his first Flutter project in Bitrise. That’s great news, Ikemura23. If there’s anything we can help with, just let us know!
ようやく成功した— ikemura23 (@ikemura23) November 20, 2019
Quite a tweet we have up next, folks: Tobi Omotayo just started using the platform, but contrary to what he expected, it turned out to be… too easy to use. So easy, in fact, it got a bit worrisome to him. No reason to fret, Tobi: we promise we’ll be here to help you out with all your mobile CI/CD needs, without having to resort to setting up any other problematic solutions. 😉
I just started using Bitrise this week and I’m concerned that I wouldn’t master the core skills of CI/CD since it’s so easy to use. I may have to spend some time to setup Jenkins and fastlane— Tobi Omotayo (@Tobitech) November 20, 2019
Our next one is a thread with multiple replies, started by Ilya Puchka, who was looking for a new stable enterprise cloud CI solution. Sally Ahmed, Florian Fittschen, and Majid Jabrayilov all replied with Bitrise in mind, and we’re super thankful for that — cheers, folks!
Bitrise is good for medium size applications— Sally Ahmed (@SallyAhmedMoham) November 21, 2019
We are quite happy with @bitrise. You can read about it here: https://t.co/JTm7ovbmEj
We also run parallelised builds and custom scripts apart from fastlane. They are also really fast in providing up to date stacks with the latest Xcode— Florian Fittschen (@FloFi) November 22, 2019
Bitrise?— Majid Jabrayilov (@mecid) November 21, 2019
Our next Bitrise User Group is just around the corner, so we thought we'd share our friend Satoshi's tweet about it. With the first Wroclaw one just finished and many potential ones being planned as we speak, we’re overjoyed to see that BUGs are thriving so much. If you’re in the area, are using Bitrise, and would like to learn some neat tricks from your fellow users, make sure the 18th of December is free in your calendar!
Bitrise User Group Meetup #3 を公開しました！ https://t.co/LpcygUFD4A #bitrise_meetup— satoshin21 (@satoshin21) November 22, 2019
Time for some swag pic tweets! Huge thanks to Marcos Silva, Sinan, Rudi Telo, Takahiro, Yamatatsu, and Juan Sanzone for sharing these. We’re so happy we could surprise you with all these goodies, folks.
It was nice to have @bitrise team today at @GOintegro HQ. Thanks for making such a powerful tool to build and deploy mobile apps. pic.twitter.com/oJ4gkLyIry— Marcos Silva (@marcos_silvav) November 25, 2019
Thank you @bitrise. I am flattered. pic.twitter.com/R0I68gkahE— Sinan (@gunes_dev) November 26, 2019

looks better with #bitrise ✅ 🤪 pic.twitter.com/axFY4vWuXr— Juan Sanzone (@johnsanzo) November 30, 2019
We also saw Eric Lewis talk about his unofficial Bitrise app’s development — we’re grateful to have such enthusiastic fans work on tools like this, Eric. Keep up the good work.
still plugging away on my Bitrise application written with SwiftUI :)
there is a lot of detail throughout the app and it is getting closer to stable and smooth. https://t.co/JMjBDVUvYr pic.twitter.com/do2CZBF7q9— Eric Lewis (@ericlewis) November 27, 2019
I rewrote the internals for Bitrise app again. The nice part about “Bitrise 4” vs 3 is that 3 was used to create a solid and easy to use UI system. So Bitrise 4 began as just creating a workable model which scaled well. Now I’m porting the UI system back to it and cleaning house.— Eric Lewis (@ericlewis) December 1, 2019
Next up is Andrey Mukamolov, who just tried out the platform, and found it to be pretty easy to use and configure. Glad to hear, Andrey — keep us updated on your progress.
Tried @bitrise because ran out of Bitbucket pipelines. It's cool that I can run my instrumented tests effortlessly on CI now. Plus, it's super easy to configure https://t.co/BVYEu0bSQK— Andrey Mukamolov (@fobo66) November 27, 2019
Lee Higgins also joined the ranks of our Bitrise enthusiasts, tweeting out how quick it is to set up a project as well as how much he likes the drag-n-drop UI we have going on. Awesome to hear, Lee — just like with Andrey, we’d love to hear more about your experiences with the platform.
Recommend anyone needing CI checkout @bitrise .
Drag and drop, built-in secrets. On a recent flutter project I setup my release to play store beta in less than 20 mins!https://t.co/WsqAcCNFDx— Lee Higgins (@Depthperpixel) November 27, 2019
A very warm, special thank-you goes out to Paul Hudson, who, in this review video of his, wore the super snuggly Bitrise hoodie we sent him to battle the upcoming cold over in the UK. We're glad you like it, Paul!
Also, thanks to @Bitrise for sending a hoodie to keep me warm in the cold UK weather. They don't sponsor me or anything; it's just a super nice hoodie 😁— Paul Hudson (@twostraws) November 27, 2019
Our next tweet is from Kam Dahlin, a veteran of a thousand CI wars. We’re honored to be your choice of weapon, Kam. May it serve you well in the future, too. 🤞
Kinda really digging Bitrise. I have fought in the CI wars. Happy to leave it to others.— Kam Dahlin (@haxie1) November 27, 2019
This one goes out to Victor and his associate David, two gentlemen we had the pleasure of meeting during our trip to San Francisco not so long ago. We can, without a doubt, say that we had an amazing time visiting you guys — thanks for having us, and for all the great feedback we got from you!
We had a visit from @bitrise last week and they dropped off some ZWACK!
Thank you for the Hungarian booze. We will drink it while our apps build on your servers! pic.twitter.com/j8rgEDVUI7— Victor (@VictorPontis) November 28, 2019
Our next tweet also ties in to our San Francisco visit — at DroidCon SF, we got a visit at our booth by none other than our friend Andrés Sandoval! Here’s a lovely picture he took with us — thank you so much for coming to meet us there. It was great to see you, and we hope we’ll get the chance to meet again.
Nice meeting the Bitrise team at DroidCon SF '19 👍 @bitrise pic.twitter.com/Lfn6WMMq7P— Andrés (@Andre__Sand) December 1, 2019
We agree whole-heartedly with Takahiro: CI/CD is meant to be enjoyed. We're so happy to have you on board — happy building!
Let's Enjoy CI/CD.
I use Bitrise. #Bitrisehttps://t.co/312b6sHMjN— Takahiro (@Takahiro_1984) November 30, 2019
Now that’s something we don’t see every day! Narlei Moreira shared a picture of his mug, which has a Bitrise sticker on it — one with our older design, no less! So glad to have you with us after all this time, Narlei. Cheers!
☕️ @bitrise pic.twitter.com/Czi19j7CgM— Narlei Moreira (@narleimoreira) December 2, 2019
This tweet comes from Atsushi, who expressed his joy of having Bitrise approved as the official CI tool of their team. That's some darn good news — we're so glad to see how happy this makes you. Welcome on board!
年内にiOSもビルド自動化するって宣言しました。今対応してる不具合片付けたら一気にいきます。#bitrise #駆け出しエンジニアと繋がりたい— [email protected]雑食系エンジニア (@atsushi_pg) December 4, 2019
We also saw a tweet by Ezequiel, who just switched his side project over to Bitrise, and found it to be pretty good so far. Pablo Paciello also joined in on the conversation, adding that his app is also built using Bitrise. We're so fortunate to have amazing folks like you, Ezequiel and Pablo — and like our good friend Mariano said, we're really hoping you feel welcome in the platform, so if you have any questions, just let us know, and we'll be there. 😉
Switched @canillitapp (my open source sideproject) to @bitrise
So far so good ❤️, the UX is far better than the competence.— Ezequiel (@betzerra) December 5, 2019
I’ve also implemented @bitrise on Buoywatch (my latest 📱 ⌚️ app) yesterday.
So far so good 👌— Pablo Paciello (@PPacie) December 5, 2019
Maybe my friends over @bitrise can help you feel more welcome into their amazing service ❤️ cc @akos_hantos— Mariano Zorrilla 💙 (@geekmz) December 5, 2019
This one goes out to Peter Goldsmith, who gave us a huge shoutout for having most of our stuff be open source. Without all the amazing user-created content and knowledge sharing that we have in the community, we wouldn't be where we are — thank you for your kind words, Peter.
Shared knowledge for puppeteering macOS build infrastructure is a sprawl of scattered scripts and snippets.
Thank you so much @bitrise for having most of your stuff open source 🙌https://t.co/JUG7oETaUk— Peter Goldsmith (@_petegoldsmith) December 5, 2019
Next up is a tweet by Gidox, who tweeted out just how much he loves tools like Bitrise. Always happy to hear you're having fun, Gidox!
Amando herramientas como @bitrise 🤩— Gidox (@Arquimedes3) December 2, 2019
Our next tweet comes from Juan Sanzone, who gave us a shoutout for being awesome. Back at you, Juan. Thanks for using Bitrise!
Bitrise is awesome ! I need official iOS client 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻— Juan Sanzone (@johnsanzo) November 14, 2019
It's kind of a tradition to have some not-so-regular tweets here and there in the roundup, and so it is with this week's one. Without further ado, we give you Telneko's tweet, who apparently likes Bitrise quite a lot... maybe even a bit too much? In any case, we're flattered.
あ…あ… Bitriseよすぎ…— てるねっこ (@telneko) November 28, 2019
Before we go, we wanted to thank everyone who joined us at KotlinConf in Copenhagen — our team over there had a great time, and loved the warm welcome you gave them. Cheers!
Thanks guys for all explanations you gave us about @bitrise, we'll try it out for sure! #KotlinConf pic.twitter.com/HuWbQyJ59r— Eco-Mind Software @ #KotlinConf (@EcoMindSoftware) December 5, 2019
