It’s really important to keep your workflow flexible and simple to avoid sleepless nights in the future. Today we’re adding another feature that will help you keep your pipelines clean: passing parameters between actions within an execution and passing them between different executions.
- From now on you can pass Environment Variables between pipeline actions and consecutive executions
- [Optimization] Pulling the branch list on the ‘Run wildcard pipeline’ view has been optimized. If the list had a couple thousands of branches the loading could take up to several seconds. After the optimization, it’s 10x faster
- [Version control] You can now search branches on the ‘Run wildcard pipeline’ view
- [Pipelines] Until now, some actions required a data check before they could be added or edited. For example, in the SFTP action we were checking whether we can connect to the server and upload a file to the given location. Since now, no verification is required. You can still check the data with the new ‘Test’ button, though
- [Pipelines] Until now, values of encrypted variables were showing how many characters a variable had. Now, this number is a fixed value
- [Updates] Heroku CLI has been updated to 7.0.60
- [Android] The ‘Sign APK’ action was not working properly if you used a key that wasn’t secured with a password. Fixed
- [GitHub] If a project synchronized with a GitHub repository was deleted, it was not possible to add this project again. Big thanks to Alex for pointing that out – fixed!
Following the recent addition of the Android workflow, we’re excited to announce that Buddy now supports Ionic builds!
For Ionic developers new to Buddy, this means you can now automate the entire delivery process down to a single push to Git – from building APK packages, to releasing them to the Google Store:
With the recent migration to Amazon Web Services we’ve adeed new IPs that Buddy will use for connections. Here is the list of IPs that you need to whitelist to avoid problems with your firewall in the future:
22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11 18.104.22.168 22.214.171.124 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 184.108.40.206
The most recent list of IPs is always available here.
With over 15 years of experience with running large-scale workloads, Google decided to open its cluster-management system to the public in 2014. Since then, Kubernetes has become the definite choice for users seeking a scalable and portable solution to run their apps.
- Build Android apps with Ionic
- New authentication method to Google Kubernetes Engine: you can now authorize either with cluster credentials or SSL certificates (legacy authorization)
Make sure to update your whitelist with our new IPs to avoid problems with your firewall in the future.
- [Docker] Upon attaching a filesystem in the Run Docker Image action, the working dir was being changed. From now on, the working dir remains the same as in the image
- [Sandboxes] Improved filesystem browse when the sandbox is being restarted
- [Version Control] The Code view now supports a situation when the currently browsed revision doesn’t contain any files
- Input validation errors when updating profile data are now supported
- [Android] Fixed a bug with the Android Sign not working correctly if the key used wasn’t secured with a password
- [Private Git Server] When adding a new project via Private Git Server option, the HTTP authorization was throwing an error if the username contained special characters. Fixed
Complementing the already extensive stack of languages and framework served by Buddy, we’re pleased to announce that we now support Scala builds!
Scala is a high-level language that combines object-oriented and functional programming. It can be easily mixed with Java, allowing developers to build high-performance applications with huge ecosystems of libraries. Example use cases involve writing large-sized analytics and machine learning engines.
We’re pleased to announce that Clojure developers have officially become a part of the Buddy family: now you can use the Leiningen task runner to automate building and testing of your Clojure apps!
Clojure is a dynamic, general-purpose programming language which combines the approachability of a scripting language with an efficient infrastructure for multithreaded programming. It shines especially when the problem involves a high level of concurrency, or when processing large series of data is required.

Over the last few months, we’ve been receiving questions about compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). We have worked hard to ensure that we fulfill its obligations and maintain our transparency about personal data processing. As a result, we can now officially announce that Buddy is compliant with the GDPR.
