Stack System Reports

You can find the full system report of all of the available Stacks on GitHub: https://github.com/bitrise-io/bitrise.io/tree/master/system_reports.

If you’d like to add additional tools to be pre-installed you can find the instructions on GitHub, for both the Linux and for the macOS stacks.

All stacks passed our tests and scheduled to be deployed on Saturday.

Happy Building!


New stacks deployed and are available in production :tada:


I have already changed my username and email on Git.
Anyway I am still seeing the J. Doe commits when I update the version of the build via the workflow and commit it to the repository. There is anyway I can change the J. Doe to something custom?


Sure @matiasj, just add a Script step as the first step in the workflow and follow this guide: https://devcenter.bitrise.io/builds/setting-your-git-credentials-on-build-machines/
