Buildbot is a software development continuous integration tool which automates the compile or 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 by Python,[6] WebKit,[7] LLVM,[8] Blender,[9] ReactOS,[10] and many other projects.[11]

Implementation[edit]

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

SCM support[edit]

As of March 2021, in version 2.10.1, Buildbot supports SCM integration with CVS, Subversion, Darcs, Mercurial, Bazaar, Git, Monotone, Repo/Gerrit, Perforce, and BitKeeper.[12]
