How to start building on Bitrise

How to get started

Bitrise supports multiple mobile platforms out of the box: when adding a new app, our project scanner detects your app's platform based on the code. The process of adding the app is slightly different for each platform. To help you through the process, we provide quick start guides for all our supported platforms including iOS, Android, React Native, Flutter, and more.

How to deploy your app

Deployment can mean a number of things on Bitrise: you can deploy your app to test devices, or to bitrise.io, with a public install  page that you can freely distribute so that anyone can test the app; you can deploy your app to a simulator, to conduct UI testing, for example; and of course you can deploy your apps to online stores, such as the App Store or the Google Play Store.

How to test your app

With Bitrise, testing your app is enabled by default. As testing your app is a major part of the continuous integration process, Bitrise has a number of dedicated Steps to help you with running your tests, and you can use custom Script Steps if you do not find what you need in our Step Library.
