The User Experience SIG focuses on improving the Jenkins' user interface and user experience. The SIG seeks regular feedback from the community on the current UI and UX and new designs proposed by SIG members and others. We will discuss alternatives, identify compromises, and test implementations to improve the Jenkins UI / UX.(Back to List of Jenkins Special Interest Groups )
An overview of previous results of the Jenkins UX SIG is available in an external document. Most of these results have been integrated into Jenkins core in the meantime.
Reviewing new UI proposals
Discussing UI frameworks, libraries and assets
Discussing impact of UI changes to existing plugins
The UX SIG uses a Gitter room and the Jenkins community to discuss any relevant topics.
If you want to contribute we recommend that you join the Jenkins UX SIG. You can find details of when the next meetings are planned in the Jenkins Calendar or via the jenkinsci/ux-sig Gitter room.
The special interest group drives a number of initiatives within the Jenkins roadmap. Here are the most important ones:
One UX SIG project is revamping the Jenkins UI look and feel. This is an ongoing effort, new features will be integrated step by step into the Jenkins weekly releases.
We would like to make Jenkins usable by as many people as possible. It includes multiple groups of users: people with disabilities, ones using mobile devices, or those with slow network connections. In general, all Jenkins users would benefit from better navigation and layouts.
See the JENKINS-62268 EPIC for more details about the scope.
We have regular meetings on Wednesday every four weeks, at 4PM UTC. See the Jenkins Event Calendar for the schedule. At these meetings we discuss projects, share presentations, and demonstrate new capabilities. Meetings are conducted and recorded using Zoom and are archived to the Jenkins YouTube channel in the Jenkins UX SIG YouTube playlist.
Meeting agendas and meeting notes for the SIG are posted in this Google Document. Anyone is welcome to add a topic for an upcoming meeting by suggesting a change in the agenda.
