Jenkins Monitor

This project aims to help you show status of build in blue(building), red(failure), green(success) box on jenkins. By using jQuery JSONP and jenkins built-in API, setup is a piece of cake.


For a CI server to be effective it is important that the team is constantly aware of the build status, typically this is done using a build light. Jenkins-dashboard has a few advantages overy a typical build light. Assuming you have a spare monitor or TV you can display jenkins-dashboard on it is cheaper, can display the status of any number of builds and can also display additional information such as who claimed a broken build, or who's turn it is to buy cake!


How to Use

Clone this repo to the computer you want to run the dashboard on

git clone git://

Create a new config file

vi conf/config.js

And add the following code replacing the values with your own

var CONFIG = {
    project_title: "Project Dashboard",
    jenkinsUrl: '',
    jobs_to_be_filtered: [],
    jobs_to_be_excluded: [],
    cycleTime: 4

Open the dashboard in your browser

open index.html -a safari

Adding new tabs

Static content

You can easily add a tab with static content, these could be used to display information that doesn't change very often.

Open index.html and find

<ul class="nav nav-tabs"></ul>

then add the following code

<li><a href="#your-stuff">Your Stuff</a></li>

Then find the

<div class="pill-content"></div>

and add

<section id="your-stuff">
  <header><h2>Your Stuff</h2></header>
  <div class="content">
    <p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet...</p>

Make sure that the id of the section matches the href of your li

Dynamic content

We've implimented a basic plugin system for adding tabs with dynamic content. For this example we'll make a simple "Hello World!" plugin.

  1. Make a new file in js/plugins/hello_world.js with the following content:

    (function () {
        var el = dashboard.createTab('Hello World');
        function displayMessage() {
            el.html('Hello World')
  2. Include the new file at the bottom of index.html in the section marked "plugins"

It's a very basic example but the important points are:

  1. Your plugin file must self execute
  2. dashboard.createTab('Hello World'); creates a named tab and returns a jQuery object for the body of the new tab which you can update using JavaScript for example you could use jQuery to make JSONP requests to a server on a regular interval and insert the content when it receives a response.
