CatLight shows build status notifications in tray. It supports multiple public and private Jenkins servers. Catlight app runs on Windows, OS X and Linux.

Use Catlight to see the current status of important builds and tests. When a build breaks down, Catlight will change color of the tray icon and show a notification. This icon will remind your team that a build needs attention.

Compared to email notifications, Catlight saves your time by focusing on the current state, and not the history of changes.


Build investigations

Developer can volunteer to fix the broken build, and CatLight will notify the whole team that he is investigating that build.

Separate build history for each Git branch and pull request

Folders support

You can monitor specific jobs from folders.

    I instaled CatLight (free version) . So it takes jenkins URL and shows me the build jobs and lets me select one, BUT then it needs my email to complete setup? WTF?

    Forces you to create account even when it's not necessary to functionality. The free version eventually might expire and ask you to buy account. I prefer the AnyStatus which has API so you can add (or write) custom plugins:

    And it supports API token for jenkins, so you don't need to put your account credentials into the notifier.
