Since Buildron 1.2.0 and Buildron RC 1.0.0 launch we received a lot of suggestions from users around the world. So this new version is about these amazing suggestions + some ideas from our team. Take a look:
Now, behind the default builds totems there is something new: The Builds History Totem. This totem shows the history of builds since Buildron started. So, you can have a visual idea of your day builds history. With the new Buildron RC you can look closer to Builds History Totem.
Let there be sounds
- Build created
- Build queued
- Build running
- Build failed
- Build success
For users who has a dedicate machine to run Buildron and want to automate the machine wake up and shutdown we have implemented the “autostart” argument.To use it, just call Buildron with this argument and it will try to auto start and connect to CI server.
open Buildron.app --args autostart
The filters from Buildron RC are persistent, so you can disconnect Buildron RC and in next time you start Buildron, the filters will be applied again. It’s useful when you want to use Buildron to show just a subset of your builds.
I have Buildron RC, don’t bother me
The message “Download Buildron RC for iOS and Android: http://skahal.com” won’t appear again if any Buildron RC has connected to your Buildron instance.
Many small improvements
You’ll see a little improvement here and there, like a better floor texture resolution, last update message showing seconds, a better camera positioning, etc. Some bugs were fixed too
Buildron RC 1.0.0 was very simple remote control to Buildron. For this new version we have redesigned the visual and features. This is why we changed to 2.0.0 version.
Below is the Buildron RC 2.0.0′s features:
One 3D control to rule them all
Buildron RC is now a full 3D control where you can use your mobile device gestures to navigate and control Buildron : swipe, pinch, tap and free your mind to interact with Buildron.
You can filter builds by status (Queued, Running, Success and Failed) and by builds names.
Your filters are persistent on Buildron.
Sort your builds
Do you want organize your Builds order? From Buildron RC you can sort the builds by name and by date.
You’ll be able to see the builds been sorted. There are 4 classic sort algorithm used each time: Bubble, Selection, Insertion and Shell.
I like to zoom
My builds, my history
You can see the new Builds History Totem very closely with the History button.
Spread the word
Start and stop build
Well, we have many more ideas to improve Buildron and Buildron RC, like gamefication, new CI servers support, push notifications, etc.
