node-build-monitor

A Build Monitor written in Node.js, which supports several build services. It can be easily extended to support new services. You can mix different services as you like and you'll always see the newest builds in its responsive and themable web frontend automatically. And finally, everything is prepared to run as a Docker container.

Here's a demo: http://builds.mspi.es <sub><sup>(other themes)</sup></sub>
<br />
<sub>(automatically deployed from this repository with Tutum as a Docker container to the Microsoft Azure Cloud)</sub>

Supported services

Feel free to make a Fork of this repository and add another service.

Jump to the configuration documentation and see how the services are configured.

Quickstart

You have three options:

Configuration

The build monitor configuration can be placed in one of the following locations:

  1. %HomeDirectory%/node-build-monitor-config.json
  2. %PathOfExecutable%/config.json (only for the standalone version)
  3. app/config.json
{
  "monitor": {
    "interval": 30000,
    "numberOfBuilds": 12,
    "latestBuildOnly": false,
    "sortOrder": "date",
    "debug": true
  },
  "services": [
    {
      "name": "Travis",
      "configuration": {
        "slug": "node-build-monitor"
      }
    },
    {
      "name": "Travis",
      "configuration": {
        "slug": "marcells/bloggy"
      }
    }
  ]
}

In the monitor section you can set up some general settings:

Setting Description
interval The update interval (in milliseconds)
numberOfBuilds The number of builds, which will be read and displayed in the web frontend (ignored if latestBuildOnly is enabled)
latestBuildOnly Will only retrieve single latest build from each service configuration
sortOrder The sort order for buils, options : project, date
debug Enable or disable some debug output on the console

The services section accepts an array, each describing a single build service configuration (you are allowed to mix different services):

  • the name setting refers to the used service
  • the configuration setting refers to its configuration, which may differ from each service (see below)

Run the standalone version (easiest way)

  1. Download the latest release for Linux (x64), MacOS (x64) or Windows (x64)
  2. Place a file config.json next to the executable (see the description of the file in the configuration section above)
  3. Run the executable
  4. Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000 (switch to fullscreen for the best experience)

Run it manually (during development)

  1. Pull the repository
  2. Run npm install
  3. Place a file config.json in the app folder (see the description of the file in the configuration section above)
  4. Run the build monitor with node app/app.js
  5. Open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000 (switch to fullscreen for the best experience)

Run grunt to execute the tests and check the source code with JSHint.

Run it with Docker (in production)

You can try out or install the build monitor with Docker easily.

TL;DR: Go to the docker directory, edit the file config.json and execute the script, which you need.

Below, each step of the script is explained in detail.

1. Create Dockerfile

Create a Dockerfile with the following content (just this one line). You can find information about the base image here.

FROM marcells/node-build-monitor

2. Create configuration and set up the build monitor

Place a file config.json next to the Dockerfile and configure the services:

{
  "monitor": {
    "interval": 30000,
    "numberOfBuilds": 12,
    "latestBuildOnly": false,
    "sortOrder": "date",
    "debug": true
  },
  "services": [
    {
      "name": "Travis",
      "configuration": {
        "slug": "marcells/bloggy"
      }
    },
    {
      "name": "Travis",
      "configuration": {
        "slug": "marcells/node-build-monitor"
      }
    }
  ]
}

See the description of this file in the configuration section above.

3. Build your custom build monitor image

Build your custom node-build-monitor docker image. This will also include your configuration from the previous step.

docker build -t my-node-build-monitor .

4. Run the container

a. Without tfs-proxy

Run a new container from your custom image and provide the exposed port 3000 a port number you want.

docker run -d -p 12345:3000 my-node-build-monitor
b. With tfs-proxy

If you want to get access to the tfs-proxy, then you need a slighly different command, which allows the build monitor container to access the tfs-proxy container.

  1. Run the tfs-proxy container and give it a unique name.
  2. Run a new container from your custom image, link the tfs-proxy container into it and provide the exposed port 3000 a port number you want (in this sample 12345).
    docker run -d --name tfs-proxy marcells/tfs-proxy
    docker run -d -p 12345:3000 --link tfs-proxy:tfs-proxy my-node-build-monitor
    

Ensure that you omit the tfsProxyUrl setting in your config.json, so that it can be determined automatically. Here you'll get more information about container linking.

5. Access it with your browser

Now open your browser and navigate to http://localhost:12345 to see your running or finished builds. Switch to fullscreen for the best experience.

Theming support

Here you can check out the existing themes. Feel free to add your own and make a pull request. It can be done very easy.

Theme Description Preview
default Works best on bigger screens with a high resolution Demo
lowres Works best on screens with a lower resolution Demo
list Displays the builds as a list, instead of tiles Demo
lingo Describes the build status in form of a hand-written sentence Demo

You can switch the themes by the url parameter theme.
e.g.: http://localhost:3000?theme=list

Creating a new theme

If you want to create a new theme, you simply have to create one template file and one stylesheet in the following paths.

  • Stylesheet: app/public/stylesheets/themes/[name of theme]/style.css (you can place dependent css files in this folder)
  • Template: app/public/templates/themes/[name of theme]/.html

Please use a unique class prefix like [name of theme]-theme for your css, so that we do not run into any conflicts with other themes.

A list with the name builds with Knockout.js ViewModels BuildViewModel will be bound to the template. Knockout.js has a very low learning curve and provides a powerful data-binding mechanism.

Just check out the other themes to get sample code. It's quite easy to create new themes.

Additional: Raspberry Pi Configuration

Here are some useful links, how to run the build monitor frontend on a Raspberry Pi.

This sample script can be used in a cronjob to automatically send your screen to sleep mode in the evening and wake it up in the morning.

#!/bin/bash

if [ $1 = 'on' ]; then
  tvservice -p;
  fbset -depth 8;
  fbset -depth 16;
  chvt 6;
  chvt 7;
  echo 'Switched Screen ON!'
fi

if [ $1 = 'off' ]; then
  tvservice -o
  echo 'Switched Screen OFF!'
fi
