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.
Navigate to https://catlight.io/ and download the client. Once downloaded, install and open the app. You should see a screen similar to this:
Select Jenkins and you should then have a screen similar to this:
Populate the ‘Server URL’ field with the host value of Jenkins, credentials and select next.
Once done, you should see a list of all your Jenkins jobs listed.
With the setup now complete, CatLight should now start to publish status changes from Jenkins.
CatLight combined with Jenkins is a great tool to aid developers in staying more up to date with builds from Jenkins.
