Documentation for Ruby plugin development is on the GitHub wiki
Relevant source code of the runtime is all in the jenkins.rb GitHub repository.
In addition, existing plugins that are implemented in pure Ruby might be useful as examples
Developing the plugin development SDK
- recruit people who fill in the implementation for TDD cucumber task
- How do we write tests?
Long term goals
- Figure out live reloading of code, not just views.
