Jenkins was initially built to be a build and release tool. Over the years the community has progressively changed to be a tool used for Continues Integration and Continous Deployment Tool (CI/CD). Jenkin works well as the core engine in setting up DevOps. Taking your code from a local repository and building testing and giving feedback based on the results.

Here I will generally show you steps to take to add a node js to your projects in Jenkins. Before beginning here are prerequisites.

  1. Jenkins installed.
  2. Github Account
  3. Knowledge Bash/ Command Line

Step 1

The great thing about Jenkins is that is has a vast library that is supported by the community for the community. These plugins enable projects to have a proper environment to be processed. For Nodejs to run you must install a Nodejs plugin.

The plugin panel can be accessed through

Manage Jenkins > Manage Plugins

From here select the available tab. Instead of scrolling the list just search Nodejs at the top right-hand corner.

Select and install the plugin in. This may take a few moments.
