Notes on Bitbucket Pipelines

Container Build exceeded memory limit.

This can happen for large steps, in my case building an app bundle with turtle-cli. You can double the memory allocation for a step with size: 2x

Regular steps have 4096 MB of memory in total, large build steps (which you can define using size: 2x) have 8192 MB in total.

- step: &turtle-build-android
    name: Build app bundle (.aab)
    image: ubuntu:focal
    size: 2x # Double resources available for this step.
      - npm
      - echo 'this is my step with 2x memory'

Get the commit message for the commit that triggered the pipeline

    - step:
          - COMMIT_MESSAGE=`git log --format=%B -n 1 $BITBUCKET_COMMIT`
          - echo $COMMIT_MESSAGE


Please note that this site and the posts on it are, and will always be, a work in progress. If i waited for perfection, i’d never get anything done.
