Our build lights

It’s been some time since we’ve launched toukLab which is a kind of HackerSpace for our employees. Besides our core business – mainly enterprise software for polish telecoms – in toukLab we develop some toys just for fun or for increasing productivity :)

I created Continous Integration lamps at toukLab with little help from Piotr Jagielski. Some of you could see it on Confitura conference this year.

But for those who haven’t here is a short description – Java software based on vert.x runs on RaspberryPi and watches Jenkins jobs. Their status is presented on display connected to RaspberryPi.

Build status is also reflected by police lights – blue, orange and red. Whenever build status changes it’s reflected by flashing lights for a few seconds.

Main features are:

  • works with Jenkins / Hudson
  • has nice GUI that gives instant feedback
  • it has own dedicated server connected to the Net (no PC required)
  • written in Java and easily portable
  • it’s cheap
  • future support for other CI servers is planned (Bamboo, CruiseControl, Continuum etc.)
  • future support for other monitoring systems like nagios is planned

Ingredients used:

  • Jenkins :)
  • Raspberry Pi with JVM 8
  • vert.x application platform
  • groovy + java
  • jQuery + some HTML and CSS3
  • hardware bridge to power lights (own built)

Stay tuned for more from toukLab news!

  1. I'll put my helmet on someday and ride agna.aFull-fice helmets are great when folks ahead of you decide to flick their still-glowing cigarette butts out the window. Sometimes they hit you in the faceshield, sometimes they hit you in the chest. Someday I'm gonna retrieve one, pass them, and throw it back into their open driver's window…

  2. as Tred predicted you continued your name calling while being completely in denial that hunters keep beating the anti hunting crowd, some losers will never face that their thinking is all wrong. Bob we “Sportsmen” pity your pathetic life. You should go drown yourself in some marijuana spiked grass juice.

  3. I guess the point is that he thinks it is a good book despite the shortcomings of the beginning and production quality. I would have to agree with you Jeremy on both points. However, this is a brilliant book and it is a good book for anyone who wants an inside track into Nigeria's history. You would think that Spectrum will bring out a new edition for this 50 yr independence stuff. It is a book that everyone should have on their shelf – read. Perhaps you guys can wrestle it off Spectrum and give it the kind of care it deserves!!
