Sebastian Bergmann has a new post to his blog today talking about the Jenkins template he's put together to help PHP projects get started quickly with the popular continuous integration tool (formerly Hudson).
Most web applications are changed and adapted quite frequently and quickly. Their environment, for example the size and the behaviour of the user base, are constantly changing. What was sufficient yesterday can be insufficient today. Especially in a web environment it is important to monitor and continuously improve the internal quality not only when developing, but also when maintaining the software.
The Template for Jenkins project gives you a standard template to build off of when setting up your environment. It includes links to the required plugins, the needed PHP tools (installed via PEAR) and the build configuration files. At the end, there's also a bit on how to get it all installed and configured. There's even a few screenshots to help you be sure things look okay.
