Community Roundup: February 18 – March 6

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

Welcome back to another one of our Community Roundups! If the flu season has got you down, don't worry — we’ve got some high-spirited tweets and articles to cheer you up. Take a look!

Articles of the week(s)

Our first article comes from Ch3cooh, who got a bit stuck with the error code "Cartfile.resolved is not in the root directory and the build won't work", but managed to find a solution for it. Thank you for sharing this with everyone, and we’re hoping everything is going swimmingly.

Next up is an article we’ve been waiting for since its author tweeted out he’s going to write it — AdHoc App Distribution, written by Ren! This turned out to be an amazing piece, and we think there might be a Writers’ Program swag package with your name waiting for you… 😉Thank you for this, Ren.

Up next is Mishimaybe, who wrote a quick solution to the problem he faced when he switched over his Xcode project to use Swift Package Manager to manage the library. Thank you for sharing this, Mishimay. Hope everything is going well now.

Next we have an introductory article from Sho_iOS Dev, who just started tinkering around with the platform, and thought he’d note down his initial experiences and steps. We’re so happy to have you on board — thank you for putting this together, and if we can help in any way, just let us know.

This next piece has been quite popular since it came out: "Advanced CI/CD for Android projects using Bitbucket and Bitrise" by Javier Marsicano. No wonder —this is one hell of an article, and we absolutely love it. Again, thank you for putting all of this together, Javier. 🎉

Last but not least, Masashi Kunugi wrote a great tutorial about distributing iOS and Android apps from Bitrise using Firebase App Distribution. We really liked it, Masashi — keep up the good work, and thanks for taking the time to do this.

As always, before we move on, we want to invite everyone above to join our Writers’ Program (also available in Japanese). We just announced the Editorial Feature for the program this week, which means we now offer to help with proofreading and copyediting the articles, as well as giving some tips on making it more flashy in terms of SEO/backlinks — and even technical reviews, if you’d like our engineers to take a look at it. Oh, and of course, there’s a neat swag package waiting for all newcomers. 🎁Hope to see you all there soon!

Tweets of the week

Our first tweet comes from Antoine van der Lee, who posted a neat video in which he shows how he brings Bitrise and his app together to trigger Testflight build deliveries using fastlane. We absolutely loved this, Antoine — keep up the good work.

Next up is a tweet by Anton V., who shared one of our little source easter eggs. By the looks of it, you're a regular hunter of these messages! Always glad to see people getting a kick out of these. Cheers, Anton.

Our next one comes from Vaaaaanquish, who shared two tweets about our onboarding messages. Apparently, he really liked the personal nature of it, as well as the content. Thank you so much for the kind words, and hope you’re having a great time using Bitrise.

We were also happy to see Matt Heaney’s tweet about playing around with the platform. Glad to hear everything went well with the setup — let us know how everything is going since then!

Next up is a tweet by William Robinson, whose team is just starting to trial Bitrise. Our colleague, Shams, already gave him a heads-up, but we agree: you won’t regret it, William. Let us know if there’s anything we can help with.

We wanted to give a huge shoutout to Vladimir Ivanov and EPAM in general, for being so amazing as to have held a Bitrise meetup in Saint Petersburg while we were there on some pretty secret business. Vladimir is also part of the big hush-hush we’ve yet to announce, so an extra round of applause is in order: thank you for helping us out, Vladimir. Hope we get to see you soon again!

Sometimes, things just don’t work out. We saw this tweet by Bernardo Ghazi, and thought we’d give him a shoutout. Nothing is perfect, but we’re still here for you — if there’s anything we can do to help out, we’re always all ears. Also, Bernardo was also part of this chain that we really enjoyed. Huge props for the comedic value of this.

Next up is a tweet by JP Wallhorn, in which he mentioned the need for CI/CD companies’ configuration stages needing to be easy to stay ahead of the curve — and mentioned Bitrise specifically, in fact. We’re happy to hear you like our way of approach. Cheers!

Huge shoutout to Deszip, whose unofficial macOS client for Bitrise has been around for quite a while now, and it looks like it's getting some sweet updates. Keep up the good work, Deszip! 🚀

We’re a bit unsure about the nature of the introduction here, but Koji Torishima tweeted about just having introduced Bitrise to a project, and we didn’t want to miss out reacting to such an enthusiastic tweet. If you’ve just started using the platform, we hope you’re having a wonderful time, Koji. 🤟

This one comes from Lucas Farah, who tweeted about finishing up his first CI setup with Bitrise. Awesome work, Lucas! Hope the platform is to your liking, and everything is going perfectly.

Last but not least, we saw a tweet to something that still sits close to our hearts: our very own, special, one-of-a-kind ASMR tutorials. We’ll end this roundup on a high note here (or, well, a quiet one): thank you for praising our artistic endeavours, Jay. We couldn’t agree more. It is simply amazing.

This is amazing.— Jay (Jeroen) 💙🦄 (@jfkdev) March 3, 2020

That’s it for now, 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!
