Literate builds - a big new thing for Jenkins

Written by: Michael Neale

Literate builds are a new way of working with Jenkins:

  • Store your job definition with your code

  • Each branch has its own definition (cheap/easy branching!)

  • Use Markdown as your build file format - is your build config.

This is a big enhancement - which can suit many ways of working (of course this isn't changing anything - you can keep using Jenkins the way you are now!).
