Short Description
Automated build for blueocean - the official repo is quite old and not automated.
Full Description

Blue Ocean is the next generation user experience for Jenkins.

It is a multi-module maven project with a few Jenkins plugins.

Read it:


Modules of note


Blue Ocean Dashboard plugin. Currently contains the bulk of the Blue Ocean user interface. This is mostly client side JavaScript built with ES6 and React.


Acts as an aggregator plugin, making it an easy place from which to run Blue Ocean via hpi:run.

NOTE: As already stated, this plugin is likely to be refactored in the near future.


Java interfaces and classes that specify the definition of the REST API. See the README within this module for more information.


Provides the default implementation of the REST Api defined in the blueocean-rest plugin.


Web infrastructure that glues Jenkins and Blue Ocean plugin together on the /blue endpoint.

Building and running

Build everything (from root directory)

Builds all maven modules (run this the first time you check things out, at least)

$ mvn clean install

For now, you'll need to skip the tests if building on Windows, so be sure to include the -DskipTests switch e.g.

$ mvn clean install -DskipTests

Running Blue Ocean

$ cd blueocean-plugin
$ mvn hpi:run

Then open http://localhost:8080/jenkins/blue to start using Blue Ocean.

The Jenkins Classic UI exists side-by-side at its usual place at http://localhost:8080/jenkins.

Browser compatibility

The obviously goal is for Blue Ocean to be runnable on all browsers on all platforms. We're not there yet, but getting
closer. The ultimate goal will be to have browser support in line with the Jenkins Browser Compatibility Matrix.

List of browsers where we know Blue Ocean is not yet runnable:

  • Internet Explorer (all versions) on Windows


Follow the steps above for getting it running first.

Look in following README's for:

Tools needed

Maven is used for most building. The project is configured to grab all the tools you need from the JavaScript ecosystem to get started.

If you are working on the Javascript, you will need node and gulp installed.

NOTE: look in the of the respective modules for more detailed dev docs.

Debug and live reload with IntelliJ

Automatically deploys changes to an instance of blueocean that is run with hpi:run.

  1. Enable class reloading: Preferences > Build, Execution, Deployment > Debugger > HotSwap
    • Reload classes in background
    • Reload classes after compilation: always
  2. Create a Maven Run/Debug configuration
    • Working Directory: <project root>/all
    • Command hpi:run
    • Runner > Properties: Enable Skip tests
    • Runner > VM Options: -Dblueocean.config.file=../
  3. Debug new configuration, and after compilation the class file will be reloaded

You can chat to folks on #jenkins-ux on freenode (IRC). You can also email the jenkins-dev email list (google group:!forum/jenkinsci-dev) - but ensure you use the prefix [Blue Ocean] in your subject line when posting.
