Nice idea, to have an aggregator for (often too detailed)  ci-server-views. CI-Eye can aggregate Jenkins, Hudson and Teamcity. With using this, you could put some nice 40″ displays into the developers-rooms and everybody can see the red… better green builds 🙂

A nice addon for „tool-driven-development“ and worth to have a further look: https://github.com/netmelody/ci-eye/

Just had a short view on the config, which is not very well documented, but in your home-directory directly under .ci-eye/ you have several config-files. The most important (for now) is views.txt:

[PROJECT_NAME] –> the name of the link, which will guide you to the radiator
JENKINS|http://localhost:20000/jenkins|radiatorview

<what-kind-of-ci-system>|<where-to-find>|<name-of-view>

This might be a good solution for multi-ci-environments, but when running just one single instance (or with slaves) of Jenkins , I prefer the radiator-view-plugin or even the extreme-feedback-panel-plugin.
