You have the following options:

Specifying app repository

GitHub, Bitbucket and GitLab

When adding your very first app to Nevercode, you will need to authorize access if the chosen repository is hosted on GitHub, Bitbucket or GitLab.

  1. Click Add a new app on Nevercode dashboard.
  2. Depending on where your repo is hosted, select either GitHub via OAuth, Bitbucket via OAuth or GitLab via OAuth.
  3. Log in to the repository (if required) and authorize access to the repository.
  4. After being redirected back to Nevercode, the list of repositories is displayed. Select the repository from where Nevercode should fetch the code for your app.

The next time you add an app, you can simply select GitHub/Bitbucket/GitLab and the list of repositories is displayed.

To learn more about the benefits of connecting your repo via OAuth, see our documentation on the integrations:

Add your repository manually

If your repository is not hosted on Github, Bitbucket or GitLab, or you need to use an authentication method other than OAuth, you can add your repository manually.

  1. Enter the checkout URL. See Defining checkout URL for details.
  2. Select an appropriate authentication method. See Authenticating repository access for details.
  3. Click Save and continue.
