If you are looking for a desktop growl notifier for your build runs on Jenkins, you are at the right place.
This does exactly that, at regular intervals it checks if any of the configured jobs had run and if so it figures the status and change set and notifies via growl.
Growl notifier command line tool has to be installed and should be available on PATH.
$ gem install jenkinsgrowler
$ git clone https://github.com/katta/jenkinsgrowler.git $ cd jenkinsgrowler $ rake $ gem install pkg/jenkinsgrowler.gem
Usage: jenkinsgrowler [options] -s, --server SERVER_URL URL of the jenkins server -j, --jobs JOBS Comma separated jobs names -i, --interval INTEVAL Polling interval in seconds. Default (60 seconds) -u, --user USERNAME Username for basic authentication -p, --password PASSWORD Password for basic authentication -t, --timezone TIMEZONE Servers timeone. Default (+0530) -h, --help Displays help message
$ jenkinsgrowler -s "http://ci.myhost.com/" -j "GrowlerTest"
In the above example the
http://ci.myhost.com/ is the jenkins continuous integration server url and
GrowlerTest is a job name to be monitored.
You can also monitor more than one job by specifying comma spearate job names like
$ jenkinsgrowler -s "http://ci.myhost.com/" -j "GrowlerTest, Job3"
If your ci server is protected with basic authentication, you could just pass on the credentials to the
jenkinsgrowler as shown below
$ jenkinsgrowler -s "http://ci.myhost.com/" -j "GrowlerTest" -u "username" -p "password"
