Windows builds are streaming output

And it only took me half a day. :)

The first Windows Build

… just finished on the test server. It does have some glitches, but it is a start!

More Linux images

We have added three new Linux images with Jeroen:

The `rhub` R package

I have started to implement the rhub R package, to start builds from
within R. Its repository is now private, until it stabilizes a bit. Let me
know if you want to take an early peek at it.

Getting closer to Windows

Powershell for the win

I am getting closer to supporting windows builds. I started to write two Powershell scripts, that will eventually perform the windows builds on the slaves:

Binary cache & Windows

Some more Linux builders

  • r-patched-linux-x86_64 Debian testing
  • r-devel-linux-x86_64-ubuntu-16.04 most recent Ubuntu LTS
  • r-release-linux-x86_64-ubuntu-16.04 most recent Ubuntu LTS
  • r-devel-linux-x86_64-debian-jessie stable Debian
  • r-release-linux-x86_64-debian-jessie stable Debian

Adding new images is somewhat complicated. I need to add them at several places:

Fighting with Jenkins

Streaming output from Jenkins

Seems like Jenkins does not drop TCP connections coming for the builder web app to stream the console output. What is even worse, it keeps a thread for each connection, and gets really slow already around ~20 threads. (What the hell is it doing? It should be just listening on a socket….)

The r-hub log

Welcome to the r-hub log. r-hub is a project to build infrastructure for R users. See more about it in the project proposal.
