Jenkins is the market leading continuous integration system, originally created by Kohsuke Kawaguchi. This API makes Jenkins even easier to use by providing an easy to use conventional python interface.
Jenkins (and It's predecessor Hudson) are useful projects for automating common development tasks (e.g. unit-testing, production batches) - but they are somewhat Java-centric. Thankfully the designers have provided an excellent and complete REST interface. This library wraps up that interface as more conventional python objects in order to make most Jenkins oriented tasks simpler.
This library can help you:
- Query the test-results of a completed build
- Get a objects representing the latest builds of a job
- Search for artefacts by simple criteria
- Block until jobs are complete
- Install artefacts to custom-specified directory structures
- username/password auth support for jenkins instances with auth turned on
- Ability to search for builds by subversion revision
- Ability to add/remove/query jenkins slaves
