Bitbucket and Xcode - Tutorial





Bitbucket and xcode tutorial

Git, Bitbucket are the tools that allow developers to store their code on the server as repositories and push/commit any changed made to the local machine code in to the repository code. The advantage of doing this is that if another developer is not working on the same machine then and is in a remote location, then he/she can carry on from where another guy left without even sharif multiple copies of code.

In this post, we will learn about Bitbucket and how we can use it with Xcode. The requirement for this is that you have an account on Bitbucket. If one did not have an account, then you can create it here

https://bitbucket.org

After creating your account, you have to create a team (optional) as shown below
