Installation from source

Jenkins.el is trivial and requires next steps:

  • Clone repo to your local disk
$ git clone git@github.com:rmuslimov/jenkins.el.git
  • Add jenkins.el path to your emacs path
(add-to-list 'load-path "<your local jenkins.el path>")
  • Configure next jenkins.el variables
(setq jenkins-api-token "<api token can be found on user's configure page>")
(setq jenkins-url "<jenkins url. Example: https://jenkins.company.com/ >")
(setq jenkins-username "<your user name>")
(setq jenkins-viewname "<viewname>") ;; if you're not using views skip this line

If you don’t know your API token, it’s easy to find it in jenkins user credentials page. Just visit:

Jenkins main page > People > %Select your user% > Configure > Press on "Show API Token"



Jenkins.el support using main view for user just define jenkins-viewname and it will be used as main view for jenkins.el.

$ (setq jenkins-colwidth-name 35) ;; or jenkins-colwidth-id, jenkins-colwidth-last-status
