GIANT ROBOTS SMASHING INTO OTHER GIANT ROBOTS

cruise_control.rb Campfire Plugin

We’ve been somewhat unhappy with our current Cerberus installation, so we’ve decided to jump on the CC.rb bandwagon. Though there were a couple of problems when adding projects (I’ll try to expand on that in another post), the overall experience was pretty good—installation was a breeze, and the plugin system makes extending it dead simple.

As proof…

Campfire plugin for cruise_control.rb

A builder plugin for CruiseControl.rb that sends build notices to campfire chat rooms.

Download

You can get the tarball here, or grab it from svn at http://svn.thoughtbot.com/plugins/cruise_control.rb/campfire_notifier. You can even track it via externals:

svn propset svn:externals 'campfire_notifier http://svn.thoughtbot.com/plugins/cruise_control.rb/campfire_notifier' builder_plugins/installed

Installation

  1. Create a Campfire account that you will use for sending notifications.
  2. Copy campfire_notifier_plugin folder to builder_plugins/installed (or use the externals method above)
  3. Modify builds/your_project/cruise_config.rb by adding the following lines:
Project.configure do |project|
...
project.campfire_notifier.domain = 'thoughtbot'
project.campfire_notifier.room = '38367'
project.campfire_notifier.ssl = false
project.campfire_notifier.username = 'sender@gmail.org'
project.campfire_notifier.password = 'sender_password'
...
end
