Buildbot is a software development continuous integration tool which automates the compile/test cycle required to validate changes to the project code base. It began as a light-weight alternative to the Mozilla project's Tinderbox, and is now used at Mozilla, Chromium, WebKit and many other projects.[4][5]


Buildbot is written in Python on top of the Twisted libraries.

SCM support[edit]

As of March 2013, in version 0.8.7p1, Buildbot supports SCM integration with CVS, Bazaar, Darcs, SVN, Perforce, Mercurial, Git, Monotone, Repo, and BitKeeper.[6]
