March is a continuous integration server.
March is in pre-alpha status.
The following are a list of goals to implement, not necessarily in order.
Command line interface
A simple command line interface that can build and test Maven projects. Prints progress information.
$ march Building... done. Testing... pass. Packaging... done. Verifying... pass. Completed in 1m 28s.
Reports compile and test errors in a human readable way. May report test failures as they happen.
Keeps track of projects. Persists to disk, does not stay memory resident yet.
foo$ march add Added ’foo’. $ march list foo: /path/to/foo bar: ... $ march run foo: Building... done. ... bar: Building...
Persists state to e.g.
Runs each build in a dedicated VM, possibly in the cloud. If too much overhead, may use Linux Containers (LXC).
Clones repositories to working space instead of building in place.
Persistent working space
Keeps a persistent working space. Recreates it if necessary.
Stays memory resident. Command line app communicates with the daemon.
A web client that communicates with the daemon via the same protocol as the command line client.
