Plug and play continuous integration with django and jenkins

Project description

Plug and play continuous integration with Django and Jenkins


From PyPI:

$ pip install django-jenkins

Or by downloading the source and running:

$ python install

For the latest git version, you need the latest pip installed first:

$ pip install git+
$ pip install -e git+git://

Installation for Python 3:

$ pip install git+
$ pip install hg+
$ pip install coverage
$ # if required
$ pip install pyflakes3k
$ pip install pep8
$ # lettuce and selenium are not yet ported to python 3k

And then, upgrade the pip and install django-jenkins from git as described above.


Add 'django_jenkins' to your INSTALLED_APPS list. Configure Jenkins to run the following command:

$ ./ jenkins

This will create reports/ directory with junit xml, Coverage and Pylint reports.

For more details see the generic tutorial: or tutorial for running django-jenkins on ShiningPanda CI



    If present, it is supposed to be a list/tuple of django apps for Jenkins to run. Tests, reports, and coverage are generated only for the apps from this list. You should specify –all option to ignore this setting.
