Keep a Close Eye on The Status of App Veyor, Jenkins, Team Foundation Server, and Visual Studio Team Services Builds with The Help of This Unobtrusive and Useful App
CatLight is a user-friendly and very useful piece of software that makes it possible for you to monitor a build status, for example when it starts or when it is completed.
Well thought-out app for build status tracking
Probably the first thing you should know about this utility is the fact that it works with some of the most popular continuous integration and deployment services out there, namely AppVeyor, Jenkins, Travis CI, TeamCity and Microsoft Team Foundation Server and Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services.
The app undergoes a quick installation process, subsequent to which it automatically integrates with the system tray. In a few words, its system tray icon will change color whenever a build is either broken (red) and partially completed (orange).
Get it up and running in just a few seconds
Upon first launching CatLight, you are greeted by a simplistic interface and a start screen that enables you to quickly choose your build system.
Once you configure the app, you can accurately view the current status of the builds, who broke the build in the first place, the last build attempt or the total number of recent builds.
Customize the notifications and other aspects from the Settings section
From the Settings section, you can easily customize the app’s behavior and show notifications for all builds, your own builds or your gated check-in ones.
You can also setup the app to notify you only when a build starts, a build succeeds, when it fails or for all the described situations. Furthermore, please note that you can set the polling interval for the build status in second units.
Low-key and efficient app for monitoring build status
Taking everything into consideration, CatLight is an efficient application that enables you to monitor the build status. By lighting up its system tray icon each time a build needs your attention this unobtrusive app allows you to concentrate on your work without ever getting in your way.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used CatLight and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
