How to use this Step

Can be run directly with the bitrise CLI, just git clone this repository, cd into it's folder in your Terminal/Command Line and call bitrise run test.

Check the bitrise.yml file for required inputs which have to be added to your .bitrise.secrets.yml file!

Step by step:

  1. Open up your Terminal / Command Line
  2. git clone the repository
  3. cd into the directory of the step (the one you just git cloned)
  4. Create a .bitrise.secrets.yml file in the same directory of bitrise.yml (the .bitrise.secrets.yml is a git ignored file, you can store your secrets in it)
  5. Check the bitrise.yml file for any secret you should set in .bitrise.secrets.yml
    • Best practice is to mark these options with something like # define these in your .bitrise.secrets.yml, in the app:envs section.
  6. Once you have all the required secret parameters in your .bitrise.secrets.yml you can just run this step with the bitrise CLI: bitrise run test

An example .bitrise.secrets.yml file:

- A_SECRET_PARAM_ONE: the value for secret one
- A_SECRET_PARAM_TWO: the value for secret two

How to create your own step

  1. Create a new git repository for your step (don't fork the step template, create a new repository)
  2. Copy the step template files into your repository
  3. Fill the step.sh with your functionality
  4. Wire out your inputs to step.yml (inputs section)
  5. Fill out the other parts of the step.yml too
  6. Provide test values for the inputs in the bitrise.yml
  7. Run your step with bitrise run test - if it works, you're ready

For Step development guidelines & best practices check this documentation: https://github.com/bitrise-io/bitrise/blob/master/_docs/step-development-guideline.md.


If you want to use your step in your project's bitrise.yml:

  1. git push the step into it's repository
  2. reference it in your bitrise.yml with the git::PUBLIC-GIT-CLONE-URL@BRANCH step reference style:
- git::https://github.com/user/my-step.git@branch:
   title: My step
   - my_input_1: "my value 1"
   - my_input_2: "my value 2"

You can find more examples of step reference styles in the bitrise CLI repository.

How to contribute to this Step

  1. Fork this repository
  2. git clone it
  3. Create a branch you'll work on
  4. To use/test the step just follow the How to use this Step section
  5. Do the changes you want to
  6. Run/test the step before sending your contribution
    • You can also test the step in your bitrise project, either on your Mac or on bitrise.io
    • You just have to replace the step ID in your project's bitrise.yml with either a relative path, or with a git URL format
    • (relative) path format: instead of - original-step-id: use - path::./relative/path/of/script/on/your/Mac:
    • direct git URL format: instead of - original-step-id: use - git::https://github.com/user/step.git@branch:
    • You can find more example of alternative step referencing at: https://github.com/bitrise-io/bitrise/blob/master/_examples/tutorials/steps-and-workflows/bitrise.yml
  7. Once you're done just commit your changes & create a Pull Request

Share your own Step

You can share your Step or step version with the bitrise CLI. If you use the bitrise.yml included in this repository, all you have to do is:

  1. In your Terminal / Command Line cd into this directory (where the bitrise.yml of the step is located)
  2. Run: bitrise run test to test the step
  3. Run: bitrise run audit-this-step to audit the step.yml
  4. Check the share-this-step workflow in the bitrise.yml, and fill out the envs if you haven't done so already (don't forget to bump the version number if this is an update of your step!)
  5. Then run: bitrise run share-this-step to share the step (version) you specified in the envs
  6. Send the Pull Request, as described in the logs of bitrise run share-this-step

That's all ;)
