Wiki Markup

This plugin introduces a game where users gets point on improving the builds.

The plugin is a simple proof of concept of the Build game that was created by Clint Shank. The idea behind the game is to decrease the number of times a build becomes broken. To win the game the developers have to commit code that is compiling and keep adding unit tests.


The plugin is not activated for all jobs at start, each separate job has to activate the game. The game can also be de-activated in one job if some large merge activity is going to take place. To activate the game for a job, go to the job configuration page and check the , click "Add post-build action" and select "Continuous integration game box" from the list of available post-build actions.

Build score card

For each build the game calculates, according to the rules, the number of points that it is worth. Each user that is responsible for the build (ie comitters) receives the points.


You would like to add rules to the game that are only valid for your organization and do not want to share them. To do this you should declare the game plugin as a mandatory dependency to your plugin. Then implement the Rule and add them to the RuleBook as in above point.
