Partly to play around with the Jenkins Remote API, and partly to kickstart a build radiator setup at my current consulting engagement, I wrote a quick radiator page which might serve as a foundation for further experiment by the team. I’ve seen several build radiators built using multiple technologies – Java, Python, etc.; I specifically chose HTML/jQuery for this effort because a modern browser seems to be the only piece of software universally available on any machine one might care to set up.
The code is up at GitHub, and here is the obligatory screenshot 🙂
It uses JSONP so as to allow cross-site GET requests, else Chrome’s Same-Origin policy complains like a spoiled brat.
