Better than email build notifications

Compared to email notifications, CatLight saves your time by focusing on the current state, and not the history of changes. Developers can get too many build notification emails, and will start ignoring them after some time.

Release notifications for Azure DevOps

CatLight will show release pipeline notifications on your desktop. You will get notified about pipeline stage start, completion or failure. CatLight will also remind users that they need to approve the deployment stage.

Build Investigations

When a build is broken, CatLight will alert the whole team, and anyone can press the "I will investigate" button on the dashboard. CatLight will then notify the team that somebody is looking at the build.

Git branches and pull requests

See a separate build history for each Git branch and pull request. You can choose between monitoring all branches or just your own. CatLight will monitor only active branches to keep your dashboard neat and clean.
