Web-Based Build Server

11 Mar 2008

It surprises me that no-one offers a web-based build server - specify your source control connection details, set up a couple of tasks (build, test, report) and hit "go". Is there some obvious problem with this idea that I've missed?

I want a build server but I don't want to have to maintain the install or faff around with configs. I've tried TeamCity, which seemed ok, but the interface wasn't great and it doesn't support MbUnit.

I've started using Beanstalk for Subversion hosting, and it works very well indeed, so maybe that's what's got my thirst for web-bases apps going.
