The cinnamon UI

A continuous integration server for Node.js applications.


Step 1 - Installation

$ [sudo] npm install -g cinnamon
$ cinnamon server

Step 2 - Configure your project

$ cd /into/your/project
$ $EDITOR package.json

// Define your test script and pipe the output into the cinnamon logfile.
"scripts": {
  "test": "npm install && grunt test > cinnamon.log"

Step 3 - Trigger the CI process

That's it! I promise. Now you can use the cinnamon push application in order to trigger the CI process.

Important: The push application will also push your changes into your defined remote git repository. With other words: You can use

$ cinnamon push <remote> <branch>

as a substitution of your well-known git workflow. cinnamon will do both for you: Pushing into your remote git repository and pushing the changes into the cinnamon CI server.

Step 4 - The Frontend

Open your Browser and visit:



cinnamon will save every build into the following directory:


If you won't use cinnamon on your local machine you can also install the module on a remote machine, start the server and trigger the CI process from your local computer. To do so, you have to configure the "endpoint" attribute in your local configuration file and change it to your respective installation.

$ $EDITOR ~/.cinnamonrc
