Build status notifications for Travis CI
CatLight can monitor Travis CI builds and show a notification alerts when a build status changes. It supports Travis CI for Open Source and Travis Pro. CatLight app runs on OS X, Windows, and Linux.
Use CatLight to see the current status of important builds and tests. When a build is broken, CatLight will change the color of the menu bar icon and show a notification. This 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.
How to configure Travis CI pipeline notifications?
1. Get CatLight app
Download CatLight. The app works on Windows, macOS, and Linux.
2. Connect to GitHub
Click on "Start new configuration", and select Travis CI connection.
3. Select repos to monitor
CatLight can monitor build pipelines in multiple GitHub repos at the same time. You will receive notifications from all of the jobs that you monitor. You can later share the monitoring settings with the team, so each engineer does not need to configure this individually.
4. Get desktop notifications
CatLight will show a notification when the Travis CI build starts, succeeds, or fails. For new builds, it will provide an estimated completion time, and for failed builds, it will identify the person who broke it first.
Build status dashboard
CatLight can show the status of the selected builds on a dashboard that you can show to the whole team.
Branches and pull requests
See a separate build history for each Git branch and pull request. You can choose between monitoring all branches or just your own. CatLight will monitor only active branches to keep your dashboard neat and clean.
When a build is broken, CatLight will alert the team, and anyone can press the "I will investigate" button on the dashboard. CatLight will then notify the team that somebody is looking at the build.
Build time estimations
For long-running builds, CatLight will show an estimated time of build completion in a notification. You can also see it on the dashboard. The estimation is based on the duration of the previous successful build.
CatLight can connect to multiple Travis accounts. You can use a different Github user for each account, if needed.
