Wall Display Master Project

The Jenkins project announced an unresolved security vulnerability affecting the current version of this plugin (why?):

A wall display that shows job build progress in a way suitable for public wall displays. Rendering is performed using javascript based on REST API calls, so requires no page refreshes. 

Demo and current development snapshot

For a live demo and the latest development snapshot see http://pelle.io/jenkins-walldisplay/.


Simply click on the 'Wall Display' link in the sidebar of your project. Configuration may be done globally via the jenkins administration screen and also via URL parameters (e.g. &theme=boss)

Sample Wall Display Tips

If you have a lot of jobs, try setting filters on your view. The follow example creates a wall display that only shows interesting builds, i.e. builds with any type of failure or builds that are currently building / in the build queue.
