Flutter From Scratch, Episode 5: CI/CD for Flutter

May 7, 2020

Have you ever wondered how to go from an idea to an app with Flutter? In our new Flutter From Scratch video series, Lewis Cianci shows the whole process.

The Flutter From Scratch series covers everything from how to make an attractive looking app on Android Studio and architect it correctly all the way to getting the configuration right on Codemagic CI/CD to ship your app to app stores.

Episode 5: CI/CD for Flutter & Getting started with Codemagic

Welcome back for the fifth and final episode of Flutter From Scratch! In this episode, we take a look at how we can integrate our app with a Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) solution. We also see how we can use Codemagic’s YAML configuration to customize our build.

Prerequisites:

If you want to try a build out under your Codemagic login, please fork the Sonder repository on GitHub. After doing this, it should start a build automatically in Codemagic.

In case you need help getting started with Android codesigning, check out this article.

Lewis Cianci is a software developer in Brisbane, Australia. His first computer had a tape drive. He’s been developing software for at least ten years and has used quite a few mobile development frameworks (like Ionic and Xamarin Forms) in his time. After converting to Flutter, though, he’s never going back. You can reach him at his blog, read about other non-fluttery things at Medium, or maybe catch a glimpse of him at your nearest and fanciest coffee shop with his dear wife.
