Happy Building!

All stacks passed our tests and ready for deploy at Saturday :rocket:

How does one contribute a stack? Our Docker Images for ASP Dot Net core are public. And we’re also working on another project involving meteor Cordova.


  • docker-bitrise-dotnetcore
  • docker-bitrise-meteor-cordova
  • docker-bitrise-postgres

and can be reviewed - can always be forked under bitrise management. All we want is the caching if possible. Because our builds are taking time to pull from docker hub.

Awesome, it’s fantastic to see! :slight_smile:
I wonder if we should create a topic or category here on discuss.bitrise.io for sharing Docker images with each other. There are a few other teams who also have images built on top of the bitrise images, although this “club” would be quite exclusive at the start (we only know about 2-3 teams who do this).

For now the solution is to make your images as small as possible, compacting your layer.

We do plan to provide caching option for docker images, but that won’t come in the next weeks/months unfortunately.

New stacks deployed and are available in production :tada:
