buildboard is an Integrity style dashboard meant to be used in combination with CI Joe. It does not provide any build features only aggregation of the output from a continuous integration system like CI Joe.


The project details page:


Getting started

To get started run:

gem install buildboard

This will provide you with a running buildboard instance on port 5678 if nothing else is already running on that port.

Setting up CI Joe

To start collecting data from CI Joe setup a build-failed and a build-worked hook with the following content:

update-buildboard --directory [path to your CI Joe working repository]

See the CI Joe documentation if you're in doubt about this.

The options for update-buildboard are:

Usage: update-buildboard [-hpd]

Specific options:
    -h, --host=HOST                  The hostname or ip of the host running buildboard (default
    -p, --port=PORT                  The port buildboard is running on (default 5678)
    -d, --directory=DIRECTORY        The directory containing the CI Joe repository

Inner workings

You don't need to know this if you don't care.

All build information are stored in files in $HOME/.buildboard, they're just YAML files, go peek if you want.

The protocol for integrating with buildboard can be derived from Build#load_file.


buildboard is based on and/or stole from, and would like to thank:

  • Integrity provided a nice design to steal
  • CI Joe is the reason buildboard was made
  • Sinatra is the muse that underlies it all
  • Vegas for making it crazy easy to provide a stage for Sinatra

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
