The Jenkins Community, the community of developers using the Jenkins CI open source continuous integration (CI) server,  has announced that Jenkins continues to grow at an accelerated rate. Whether the number of active Jenkins instances, plugins contributed to the community or attendees at Jenkins user conferences, all have continued to grow by double-digit percentages in 2014.

Growth in the number of active installations of the Jenkins platform has accelerated in 2014. Active installations reached 95,927 as of September 30, 2014, up 37 percent from September 2013 and more than four times the 22,389 installations registered as of December 31, 2010. There were 18,869 active installations added in the first nine months of 2014 – a 45 percent increase from the 13,045 active installations added in the first nine months of 2013.

Jenkins has become the leader for continuous integration and continuous delivery due to its open and extensible plugin architecture. This extensibility enables Jenkins to orchestrate a software delivery pipeline typically comprised of many different tools. The extensive list of available plugins gives developers and DevOps teams the ability to work with their tools of choice to build, test and deliver software. The number of plugins contributed by the Jenkins community crossed 1,000 in October – marking a 20 percent increase over the 832 available on September 30, 2013, and a 65 percent increase over the total available as of two years ago.

“These growth numbers reinforce what we’ve been saying all along: The Jenkins Community is thriving, and is laser-focused on creating value for its members now and long into the future,” said Jenkins CI founder and governance board member Kohsuke Kawaguchi, who also serves as chief technology officer at CloudBees. “We continue to see adoption of Jenkins expand across software delivery processes, across various industries and throughout the enterprise. The push in the market to automate processes remains strong. Jenkins usage is rapidly increasing along with that trend, since a key strength of Jenkins is its ability to automate and orchestrate the entire software delivery process. However, equally as important is the active and vibrant community that continues to advance Jenkins functionality.”
