Easily cache builds you already have running on Bitrise CI or with other CI/CD providers. Bitrise Build Cache’s flexibility to cache builds anywhere means your team can reduce redundant build processes without overhauling your entire CI/CD pipeline.
Local developer workstations and CI jobs can share the same build outputs and test results, keeping build and test times low in local development and CI environments. As a result, teams spend less time waiting and more time solving meaningful problems.
Bitrise cache storage is fully managed and colocated only steps away from the macOS and Linux runners responsible for your Bitrise CI builds. This delivers near-zero network latency and eliminates data transfer costs for builds running on Bitrise CI.
Build caching reduces redundant work by storing outputs of intermediate build steps for reuse in subsequent builds. This reduces the overall compute load and the time build pipelines are active, leading to improved CI cost control.
Bitrise Build Cache promises faster build and test runs by intelligently caching the outputs of intermediate build steps, generated when compiling your code, and reusing those outputs in future builds.
Test results are also saved by Bitrise Build Cache. This means that tests unaffected by your code changes can avoid being rerun — resulting in massively reduced build and test times.
To learn more about build caching and how it complements dependency caching, read our Guide to Dependency Caching and Build Caching.
The first of its kind, and 100% managed by Bitrise requiring no setup or maintenance, you can use our out-of-the-box cache Steps to cache your build and test tasks or artifacts at the highest velocity. Our world-class CDN ensures that your cache is stored right next to where it is needed by the machines running those builds, which provides additional speed gains.
Dependency caching is used to cache your third-party dependencies. Your workflow runs will save your dependencies for fast reuse so that they need not be downloaded off the internet every time the workflow is run. Bitrise supports preconfigured caching steps for major package managers and generic caching steps that allow you to customize your caching and support any package manager of your choice.
