Since AppVeyor Server release in May we’ve received great feedback and recognized huge demand for AppVeyor for Mac.

Today we are proud to announce the availability of AppVeyor Server (on-premise) for Mac, free for unlimited projects, builds, clouds and agents. This officially makes AppVeyor the only CI/CD solution that offers both hosted service and multi-platform on-premise installation.

AppVeyor Server for Mac enables to run CI/CD workflows on macOS directly or inside Docker containers. It can be installed on your own Mac or a Mac hosted in a cloud (like MacStadium or macincloud) as a build server for your entire team. When installed on cloud-hosted Mac you can also run Windows and Linux builds on Azure, GCP or AWS.

Installation and getting started

AppVeyor Server for Mac can be installed in seconds with Homebrew:

brew tap appveyor/brew
brew install appveyor-server
brew services start appveyor-server

Once AppVeyor service is started open http://localhost:8050 in your browser to continue with AppVeyor setup.

Follow this guide to get your builds up and running on your Mac.

What’s next

A new Bring Your Own Cloud (BYOC) feature is coming soon which will allow you connecting Mac to a hosted AppVeyor account or AppVeyor Server running on any platform. Imagine AppVeyor Server running on cheap $10 DigitalOcean Linux VM and running builds on your team Macs or Windows VMs provisioned on-demand on Azure!

We are also working on adding support for Parallels Desktop, VMWare Fusion and VirtualBox on Mac, so you’ll be able to safely test against various configurations (different macOS releases, XCode versions, etc.) in virtualized environments.

Best regards,
AppVeyor team
