Continuous delivery for iOS apps.

Windmill’s goal is to make continuous delivery ubiquitous while developing iOS apps; whether you are an indie developer, a small team or an enterprise.

If you have spent a day trying to setup Jenkins for your iOS needs, you’ll find Windmill refreshing. You can have an Xcode project ready to build in a couple of minutes.



“It builds on my machine; it works for me.”

Windmill allows you to monitor the quality of your app. It is about the little things during development like:

  • Does my code compile?
  • Do tests pass?
  • Is codesign setup correctly?
  • What is my code coverage?

as well as the bigger picture working towards a release,

  • Have a build ready to demo
  • Toggle features
  • Integrate with 3rd party libraries
  • Know what the Release settings are
  • Build for production


Windmill initially comes with the following features

  • Continuous integration (i.e. build on commit)
  • Scheduled builds for OTA deployment (i.e. nightly builds)
  • Test report
  • Code coverage
