Jenkins CatLight

Reading Time

CatLight is a status notifier. Jenkins is a CI tool. Put the two together and you get Jenkins CatLight. CatLight allows us to listen for updates from Jenkins, which are then cleverly posted to the user.

Jenkins CatLight

Navigate to https://catlight.io/ and download the client. Once downloaded, install and open the app. You should see a screen similar to this:
Jenkins catlight

Select Jenkins and you should then have a screen similar to this:
jenkins catlight

Populate the ‘Server URL’ field with the host value of Jenkins, credentials and select next.
jenkins cli

Once done, you should see a list of all your Jenkins jobs listed.

Status Update

With the setup now complete, CatLight should now start to publish status changes from Jenkins.

Conclusion

CatLight combined with Jenkins is a great tool to aid developers in staying more up to date with builds from Jenkins.
