Buildron 2.0.0

After some months to test the v2.0.0-RC1 we are releasing the final version of Buildron mods support with this 2.0.0 version.

Mods supports represents a great change in Buildron code structure, because we built a mods support that allow any developer add his own mods to Buildron.

Mods available

The classic visual and behavior that you already know at Buildron was moved to mods, you can see them at Buildron Classic Mods repository.

Right now we have 9 mods developed to Buildron:

  • ConsoleMod: adds a console window to Buildron and let you monitor his events.

  • Classic Mods
    • BuildMod: represents each build as part of totem.
    • CameraMod: auto position of camera to show all builds and users.
    • EasterEggMod: surprise.
    • EnvironmentMod: the classic Tron style floor.
    • SoundMod: the classic explosion sounds and allow change the sounds for each user.
    • UserMod: each user is represented by a robot and an avatar.
  • SlackBotMod: adds a bot to your Slack that acts as Buildron and your team can interact with it, like filter builds, sort builds, move camera, receive build status change notifications and taking screenshots.

  • ToastyMod: the Mortal Kombat “Toasty!” easter egg that can be configured to show on build success, running or failed.
