What are builds?

Builds are a core part of Branch. They are the proverbial blood flowing through the veins of the product. In this section, you’ll learn everything about how you compose your build pipelines, either by using built-in recipes or by implementing your own. You’ll learn what goes into a build and what comes out in the end. Even more interestingly, we’ll dive into what happens in between. The actual building.

Hosting platforms

In this section, you can find all the tips and tricks related to your hosting platform of choice. Branch has integrations with several hosting platforms, with more coming soon. If there’s no integration with the platform you use, don’t fret. Branch can be used with pretty much any hosting platform – some require a bit more setup than others, but we try to have you covered with these guides. If you think a guide is missing, please let us know, so we can fix it.
