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