Many enterprise application development teams use Jenkins for continuous delivery, but the open source tool has had a reputation for being somewhat unattractive and difficult to use. Now the project has officially released Blue Ocean, a new interface that includes pipeline visualizations, a pipeline editor, troubleshooting capabilities and GitHub integration.
“The Blue Ocean project has had incredibly positive feedback from the community since its inception. It brought a breath of fresh air to the working horse of developers everywhere that is Jenkins,” said Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder and CTO at CloudBees. “The new and very modern and intuitive UX makes Jenkins more approachable and continues to enhance the power and usability of Jenkins. It takes an organized team of contributors like CloudBees provided to the Jenkins project to drive a large effort like Blue Ocean.”
