Is setting up Jenkins on a fresh server a tedious process for you? Wes Winham thinks so. Thats why he's built a bootstrapping tool that gets Jenkins servers quickly forked and set up in the cloud. Right now the tool supports Jenkins on Ubuntu 10.04 on Amazon EC2. Pull requests are welcome. This tool also uses the well-known infrastructure configuration utility called Chef:
ci-infrastructure uses Chef
driven via littlechef to make the setup
as painless as possible. You fork this project, configure your ec2 credentials,
configure your SSH access and then you're a couple of commands away from a
maintanable CI setup that you can use to make your software more awesome.
The process starts with an optional fork of the repository, an installation of Chef and Python requirements, and then you go on to launch your EC2 node and make configurations to your SSH, littlechef, and Jenkins.
