Nicer Jenkins Views - Build Monitor Plugin
While migrating and upgrading an old install of Jenkins over to version 2 the topic of adding some new views came up in conversation and the quite shiny Jenkins CI Build Monitor Plugin came up as a pretty, and quick to deploy, option.
Using some canned test jobs we did a manual deploy of the plugin, configured a view on our testing machine, and I have to say it looks as good, and as easily readable from a few desks away, as we’d hoped.
The next step is to apply the true utility test, leave it in place for a week or so and then remove it and see if anyone notices. If they do we’ll add some puppet scaffolding and roll it out to all the environments.
