Recently I installed a Ruby gem called buildhawk which allows to measure and display the build times of Rake driven builds. As I like the idea behind this tool a lot but mostly use Phing for build orchestration, it was time to explore the possibility to interconnect them both. In this blog post I'll show an implementation of an apposite Phing Logger gathering the buildhawk compatible build times via git note(s) and how to put the interplay between those two tools to work.
He includes the script you'll need to get his example set up - a new logger for Phing that works directly with Buildhawk and stores the information directly into a git note. He includes an example of running the phing build with it enabled and some of the results as exported as an HTML document.
