Public life in the Team City

Piazza is a build monitor plugin for the JetBrains TeamCity continuous integration server. Piazza provides a high-visibility display of the current state of the build to alert the team as soon as the build breaks.

For any build, Piazza displays:

  • The project and build name
  • The current build number
  • Whether the build is "red" or "green"
  • Textual success/failure indication for the colour-blind
  • Whether the Team City server is currently building
  • The changes that caused the current build to be kicked off
  • Pictures of the team members that made those changes
  • The progress of the build
  • The build step that the Team City agent is currently running
  • The number of passed, failed and ignored tests

Piazza can also display an overview of all the builds in a project.

The plugin supports the Feature Branch feature of TeamCity.
