Relevance is pleased to be able to introduce you to RunCodeRun – a hosted continuous integration service for Ruby and Rails projects. We've been working on it for a few months now, and have been in a private beta mode, but as of today we've reached a major milestone. Today, anybody can surf to RunCodeRun and browse all the open source projects that have been building there and view their build histories.
We are also happy to announce that we are going to be sponsoring Rails Rumble by providing hosted continuous integration for interested teams. We'll have several team members providing support over the weekend and helping to make sure any test-driven Rumble teams can keep their projects happy and green. We'll have more details on the Rumble partnership at the RunCodeRun blog.
h2. Why a hosted continuous integration service?
We, like just about everybody else on Planet Ruby, are ga-ga for GitHub. Social source control has been a major factor in open source for a long time, but GitHub really elevated the game. It makes setting up source control for your project dead simple, and eliminates the front-end IT pain of managing a project. That still leaves continuous integration, the back-end IT pain, up to the team. We want CI to be as automatic, and as easy, as source control, and the way to do that is a hosted solution.
If GitHub enables easy sharing and collaboration, RunCodeRun will enable easy builds and quality metrics to find out which projects to depend on and which to pass over. To learn more about RunCodeRun and follow our progress, subscribe to the RunCodeRun blog. See you on the other side.
