Tux Droid Plugin for Jet Brains TeamCity 4.0

tux-droid-linux-companionTux Droid is a #Linux wireless Tux mascot (210mm x 180mm x 140mm – with lowered wings) with a programmable interface, allowing it to announce events by its gestures and by ALSA driven sound.

Tux Droid Plugin

With this plugin you can notify your Tux Droid with your TeamCity build results.

After login you can find the new notificator Tux Droid in your notification settings. You need your Tux Droid server IP and port  to connect your Tux to TeamCity. After you have saved the parameters you can configure your individual notification settings for just all projects/specific projects/build failures/…

Each registered User can customize Tux Droid messages or choose different Attitunes.

Attitunes are robot animations you can create combining movement, sound, Text-To-Speech and fun. From functional to fun-ctional. Make Tux Droid sing ‘Dancing in the rain’ or make him cry when you didn’t receive any new E-mail.
