BuildMonitor v0.9 – Usage Video

BuildMonitor v0.9 has been released, you can get it from the usual place.

The most useful improvement from this release is the ability to add new feed via right click menu of a link. Other improvements include the ability to remove the feed via status bar right click menu or from preferences menu. It’s also now possible to rearrange the order of the feeds via preferences menu.

I made a quick video (using recordMyDesktop) showing how easy it is to monitor Hudson feeds using the Firefox Add-on.

On l10n front, BuildMonitor has been translated to Japanese. Thank you, Sogabe-san.

I had to borrow a laptop with Windows to take this screenshot. I think Firefox 3.0.3 locale switching on Ubuntu is borked, the web pages do pick up the correct locale, but the add-ons ignore it.

  1. I committed yesterday translation to French. Not sure if it’s very good, I didn’t check the result! :-

    Thanks a lot for the translation. I’ve added fr-FR locale to the manifest. There’s something in the translated texts that stops Build Monitor from initialising the feeds, however, it’s ok when the feeds are triggered from ‘Refresh All’. I’ll investigate this further and ping you when I’ve found the culprit.


    Thank you.

  3. It would be even better if adding feeds to the monitor is more intuitive. Simple plug-in that allows the monitoring of jobs running in Hudson. Monitor build results by RSS or e-mail to get real-time notifications on failures.

    Excellent tool and quite useful.

  4. Rebecca, thanks for the compliment.

    Btw, re adding new feed. You can right click on a Hudson feed link (e.g. from Hudson dashboard) and then click ‘Add Link To Hudson Build Monitor’.

    I agree that it might not be immediately obvious or it’s still not intuitive enough.

    Please feel free to let me know if you have any suggestion on how to improve the process of adding feeds. I’ll be happy to implement it.
