TeamCity Digest #4


In this fourth TeamCity Digest we want to draw your attention to several publications of the last couple of weeks. We’ve also decided to introduce a new section in our digests on the  TeamCity plugins recently added either by our users, or by our team members.

So read on and share your thoughts with us.

Matthew Adams of endjin shares his experience of using SpecFlow 2.0, NUnit3, Visual Studio and TeamCity.

The other blog post describes how TeamCity can be used to build and deploy the code and Sitecore items to a Sitecore instance when this instance and the TeamCity build server reside on different physical servers: Continuous Integration with Gulp and Sitecore Powershell Extensions Part 2 – TeamCity Integration.

Ahmed Gadir describes a process of using TeamCity to generate release notes on every build, with the user stories stored in Jira: How can TeamCity generate Release notes from JIRA during a build.

CTO of Keluro shares their story of setting up Jekyll website on Azure using TeamCity with triggers on Git repository branch changes: Hosting Jekyll website on Azure Web app using TeamCity automated deployment.

A couple of useful tips for those who use Powershell and TeamCity: TeamCity queries with powershell (for sake of healthy develop).

Recently added plugins:

  • TeamCity Theatre – a .NET application to monitor your TeamCity builds in your browser or on a TV
  • TravCorp radiator – JavaScript build radiator – improved fork of tc-radiate
  • SwiftCity – TeamCity REST API client in Swift
  • ILMerge Meta-Runner – meta-runner to run ILMerge (utility to merge multiple .NET assemblies into a single assembly)
  • TeamCityZen – provides a command line tool which can be run as a build step to send notifications based on @user mentions in change comments

Should you write or find a piece on TeamCity, or have a plugin which is not yet listed on our plugins page, feel free to share it with us.

P.S. No, we can’t resist sharing this cool hardware TeamCity ‘Deploy’ button with you:
