CircleCI

circleCI is a cloud based CI/CD service that helps developers automate their development process with CI hosted in the cloud or on a private server.

TestFairy has a CircleCI "ORB" that allows you to easily upload builds to TestFairy.

In order to use the ORB, add the following line to the orbs section of your .circleci/config.yml:

orbs:
 testfairy: testfairy/uploader@2.0.1

Then, in order to upload your IPA or APK, you'll have to call testfairy/uploader providing the path to the file and your API key. As an example of creating add the following command:

jobs:
  build:
    # ...
    steps:
      # ... steps to build IPA or APK
      - testfairy/uploader:
          api-key: TESTFAIRY_API_KEY
          file: app.apk

Where TESTFAIRY_API_KEY is name environment variable that contains your API key. Environment variables is the best practice so you don't commit secret values into your code repository.

You can see the full list of supported commands by visiting the CircleCI TestFairy ORB Repository.
