Update (06/10/2009): installation & usage instructions are available from ChuckNorris Plugin wiki page.
Me and some colleagues were yammering some Chuck Norris Facts-like jokes a few days ago (ChuckNorrisException can never be caught, only thrown :p), and that reminded me of ChuckNorris Plugin, a simple plugin I wrote when I first started learning about Hudson plugin mechanism a while ago.
This plugin displays a picture of Chuck Norris, instead of Hudson the butler, and a random Chuck Norris ‘The Programmer’ fact on each build page.
On failure build, Chuck Norris is ready to give you a whoopin’ for breaking the build. You’ll also see a Chuck Norris fact on the build page.
A thumb up on successful build.
And an alert stance on other build results.
Please leave a comment and let me know what you think of ChuckNorris Plugin. And also let me know if you want to install it on your Hudson instance, I’ll make the .hpi file available for download.
My favourite facts: ‘Chuck Norris can unit test an entire application with a single assert,’ and ‘When a bug sees Chuck Norris, it flees screaming in terror, and then immediately self-destructs to avoid being roundhouse-kicked.’
Update (22/12/2010): mission accomplished, ChuckNorris Plugin was mentioned on Java Posse #331 - Roundup ‘10 - Modules, at 21:22, Carl suggested the use of ChuckNorris after Tor mentioned FindBugs, Checkstyle, etc.
