Publish your CC.NET Builds with Twitter

OK, so you probably don't want to do this for internal projects (CCTray works great for that), but if you've got an open source project and you're using CruiseControl.NET then it might be an idea to let your community know about it.

You can't have them all downloading CCTray and pinging away at your server all day, but you can let them listen to a Twitter feed of your build notifications. If that's something interesting for you, then have a look at the Twitter Publisher for CC.NET.

At long last something useful to do with Twitter.

  1. I did this with the Download page of my TrialBalance (discontinued) website:

    http://trialbalance.net.au/Builds.aspx

    Every successful build is automatically uploaded to that page (a heap of custom MSBuild tasks) which can then be consumed with an RSS feed.

    I considered the new Facebook API's for internal build publishing - facebook has a lot more privacy constraints to allow that kind of integration.
