We're happy to announce that Buddy now officially supports GCC.

GCC, or the GNU Compiler Collection, lets developers to compile applications written in C, C++, Objective-C, Fortran, Ada and Go (to which we already have a dedicated action), alongside libraries for these languages.

The action was added in response to numerous requests, especially from C/C++ developers.

Automating C/C++ deliveries with Buddy

With Buddy you can automatically build, test and deploy your application on every push to the selected branch. Configuration is very simple and takes literally a couple of minutes:

  1. Sign up with your GitHub/Bitbucket profile or email
  2. Select the repository with your project
  3. Add and configure the GCC action. You can install any missing dependencies in the Packages tab.
  4. Add transfer action to your type of server (eg. SFTP)

Once configured, make a push to the selected branch and watch Buddy automatically build, test and deploy your C++ app:
