MOZILLA: READ THIS!
should upgrad ethe Hudson Build Monitor Plugin so that users don’t have
to create add-on accounts just to download. Cliffano’s customer support
and product are top of the line.
started using Hudson as my Continous Integraton server at work and
still setting it up for custom interaction with Git. I have used
CruiseControl.NET and TeamCity extensively in the past and both have
tray tools. Well, I found HudsonTracker, but it wouldn’t work for me because I’m using Basic HTTP Auth with my Hudson instance.
Within a short time (couple of days), Cliffano responded with a new version to test the HTTP Authentication against.
uninstalled the old version just to make sure of no conflict and then I
right-clicked the xpi file and said to open with Firefox. It installed
without issue and showed the butler in the firefox status bar:
Display – designate some UI elements (# of builds, what to show on
status bar when collapsed, color indicators [Hudson uses blue for
successful builds for some reason. Can choose green here for us
Red/Green guys/gals], etc)
Whenever I added my RSS feed from my Hudson dashboard to the tool (I’m
using Firefox on a Mac) the URL would not stay. Cliffano had a solution
1. Go to your Hudson dashboard
VOILA! it stayed in my preferences. Most users won’t have to go this
route, but instead of typing out the url and just a name, it is easier.
Thank you Cliffano. Hopefully Mozilla will upgrade the plugin and stop requiring people to create accounts to download it.
Cliffano has stated that a 1.0 version will be coming soon. Enjoy!
