Jenkins status checks sans webhooks
Jenkins the once dominant CI/CD work horse has taken a back seat as of late. Not because it’s less powerful then its competition but because they have lowered the barrier to entry. One place where tools like Travis-CI, Circle-CI and Gitlab-CI excel at are ease of use.
I guess Gitlab is not in the cool kids club =/ A very basic need for most teams is the ability to block a feature branch from being merged that doesn’t meet certain requirements.
