Bitbucket pipeline to build and push artifact to another repo

I have a repo with all my source code (JavaScript) in, and I am trying to create a pipeline that builds this using Browserify, and then pushes only the final files to another bitbucket repo. The files to push are bundle.js (generated by Browserify), as well as an HTML page and CSS.
With my attempts so far, I've managed to push either just the html and CSS, or all the source files without the artifact, but I'm not really sure where to go.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance

If you want to push from REPO-A to REPO-B, first import your SSH keys (or create another user who have write access to REPO-B) to the SSH keys section of REPO-A repository settings.

Then you can add lines like this in your bitbucket-piplelines.yml file:

- date > test.txt
- apt-get update
- apt install --assume-yes --no-install-recommends git openssh-client
- git config --global bitbucket-pipelines
- git config --global
- git clone
- cp test.txt REPO-B
- cd REPO-B
- git add -A
- git commit -m "Added new version of test.txt at $(date)"
- git push

Thanks for your reply - this was a while ago so I no longer need this, but hopefully it’ll be useful for someone else :)

Hey i am not able to achieve, to push in another bitbucket repo from another repo pipeline. Can you please explain how i can put SSH keys?

what you have written above to import keys, that i am not able to get properly.

Hey Shanish, see, it should help.

Update: actually, nevermind. This method only enables read-only access to the target repository so you won't be able to push.

Hi @alexclifton4

Could you share your bitbucket-pipelines.yml, it looks like you are not staging bundle.js with other files, perhaps it is specified in .gitignore?



I tried a few different things and this was the closest that I got:

image: node:4.6.0

    - step:
           - node
        script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
          - npm install -g browserify
          - browserify src/main.js -o bundle.js
          - git config **email**
          - git checkout -b temp
          - git remote add dist https://**username**:$
          - git add bundle.js
          - git add index.html
          - git add style.css
          - git commit -m "build [skip ci]"
          - git push dist master --force

 (I've removed my username and email to post it here)


Any help is greatly appreciated as I'm very new to this.

Hey @alexclifton4

Try removing bundle.js entry from your .gitignore file.




It wasn't in my .gitignore file, but I've now changed my workflow so that I no longer need to do this.

Thank you for your help anyway!



Hey did you ever get this working? Trying to do something similar. 


I have repo A, I make a commit. I create a patch file of the last commit and I want to apply that patch to another repo in BitBucket, repo B.

I never did I’m afraid - this was for a project I was working on a while ago
