Remote and dependency caching

Building and releasing mobile apps often involves downloading dependencies and assets to the CI servers or the local machines to be able to build the apps, which can be time-consuming and data-intensive. However, with the advent of remote and dependency caching solutions, developers now have a powerful tool to enhance their productivity.

Remote and dependency caching for mobile apps refers to storing and retrieving frequently used dependencies and assets from a remote server. Instead of downloading these resources every time an app is built, developers can leverage caching to significantly reduce the time and bandwidth required for the build process. This optimization technique can significantly streamline app development workflows, resulting in faster build times, improved iteration cycles, and reduced data consumption.

Here are some benefits of remote and dependency caching:

  • It eliminates the need to download the same resources repeatedly...
