This projects is a collection of scripts used to orchestrate the building, testing and packaging of 3D Slicer and associated extensions on Linux, macOS and Windows dashboard machines.
Ultimately, these scripts and dashboards enable researchers across the world not only to download both stable and preview releases of 3D Slicer application but also to contribute or install more than hundred extensions.
The overall build infrastructure composed of dashboard machines, CDash server used to collect continuous integration results, and also server to host and serve application and extension packages is made possible thanks to the on-going support of Kitware, Inc.
Additionally, this project also provides tooling and instructions to (1) facilitate the maintenance of these script, (2) update and backup associated job scheduling configuration, and (3) update software installed on each dashboards.
