Hudson Build Bookmarklet
Posted:During the usual friday-frenzy I sat down and wrote a quick 10 minute little bookmarklet to start a Hudson job. Unlike most bookmarklets that "do things" this one actually "does things" but doesn't take you away from your current page. Using the Hudson Remote Access API you can query information from Hudson programmatically, but you can also kick off builds remotely with nothing more than a simple HTTP request to the properly formed URL.
By dragging the link below to your bookmark bar, and updating the URL within ("http://hudson/") to the URL of your Hudson instance, you can queue a Hudson build from any page at any time (without leaving the page).

Happy Hudsoning :)
