CruiseFace – A ruby terminal Cruise dashboard
CruiseFace shows you a developer oriented Cruise dashboard in terminal, making things simpler for monitoring Cruise pipelines.
How it works
First time, you may try this, after installed the gem, type in 'cruiseface'
Then it'll ask you cruise site url, for example:
Then your login user name and password
Then it will fetch all pipelines on the server, and list them, you need type in the index number, e.g. 5,10
For myself, I open a terminal window using black background and change the font to 18pt.
Then specifying some environment variables in my ~/.profile:
export CRUISE_SERVER_URL='https://cruise.domain.com/cruise' export CRUISE_LOGIN_NAME="xli" export CRUISE_PIPELINE_NAMES='xx_trunk--CentOS5,xx_trunk--Windows2003'
Then type 'cruiseface' in the terminal, cruiseface will ask for the password.
Why a new dashboard
When working with 2 pipelines, each has 4+ stages and has a stage with 50+ jobs, the following information is enough and need for my daily work of checking build:
Build pass/failed status
How many jobs failed right now, even all jobs are building
Who has responsibility for failed jobs
Is failed job currently building? (When I committed a fix for the failed job, I really want to know whether the failed is fixed by my commit once the job is finished)
some time, I may want to know the failing job name, but most of time, I just need the number of how many jobs failing.
what's stage building, and who committed from last built stage (Cruise does not work in this way, so cruiseface also does not implement it yet, just display pipeline committers now)
how many jobs are building, and I don't care about build success jobs
It only works on Mac, it could be run on other platform, but the color stuff won't work.
