The underwhelming web presence of Nathan Parry

Gerrit and Hubot

For a weekend project I created a Gerrit script for Hubot. It lets you query Gerrit for changes via Hubot, and enables Hubot to spam your chat room with Gerrit events as they happen. The script is now part of the hubot-scripts repository, so if you’d like to try it out, add to your hubot-scripts.json file, add a HUBOT_GERRIT_SSH_URL environment variable to your Hubot pointing to your Gerrit server, and you should be good to go.

This mini-project provided a chance to learn some CoffeeScript, which is actually quite interesting for being “just” a pretty syntax on top of Javascript.
