Doony is a series of UI improvements on top of Jenkins. Install this to make your Jenkins user experience much better.
Don't have admin access to your Jenkins instance? You can install it as a Chrome extension
As of Jenkins version 1.570, some themes from Doony are getting merged back into the main project. Doony version 2.0 works with these updated themes.
If you are installing Doony on a Jenkins version older than 1.570, use Doony version 1.6 (
git checkout 1.6, in this repo)
If you are installing Doony on a Jenkins version newer than 1.570, use the master version.
Who's Using It
Doony was made at Twilio. It's also been forked/starred by employees at:
- Panic, Inc
- the BBC
- There's a "Build Now" button on every build page. The button will redirect you to the console output of the new build. You can also easily cancel the current build.
- The orbs are gone! Replaced with shiny circles and circular in-progress bars.
- Click targets in the left hand menu are much bigger (they expand to fill the available UI)
- The fonts are bigger. Way bigger.
- "Jenkins" logo replaced with a custom color and the domain of your build server
- More spacing in between list items.
- Removes a lot of the useless icons
- "Console Output" looks more like a console.
- Replaces Courier New with Consolas.
- Hover menus have a pointer cursor, indicating clickability
- Text inputs are friendlier, bigger
- Builds are zebra-striped, have more padding
- Homepage has an option for "view console output of latest test"
If you don't control your Jenkins environment, you can run this as a Chrome extension.

Installation in Jenkins
If you do install your Jenkins environment it's probably best to embed it in the default Jenkins styles.
Install the JQuery Plugin
Install the "Simple Theme" Plugin
You can use these URLs:
# Or 2.1, depending on which version of Jenkins you are running. - https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/doony/1.6/css/doony.min.css - https://cdnjs.cloudflare.com/ajax/libs/doony/1.6/js/doony.min.js
Alternatively you can let Jenkins self host these files by putting them in
~/.jenkins/userContentWith the default Jenkins settings the files you use will then be:
- http://localhost:8080/userContent/doony.css - http://localhost:8080/userContent/doony.js
Here's a screenshot of the settings page:
Click "Save". Enjoy!
This will "work" against the latest version of Jenkins, currently 1.532. It may work with older versions but this is not guaranteed.
This is very much a work in progress, feel free to file bugs/issues and I'll make improvements as I can.
This project is in no way intended to slam Jenkins developers. Jenkins is awesome, and unlike Travis you never get a blank screen. They are working within a series of vastly different constraints than I am. Consider:
- they have to support every browser/platform/language
- any change they make will make part of the userbase angry
- every change has to be completely open-source friendly in every way
