We just posted a sample post-build task for build notifications via Google Talk, similar to how we deliver notifications via Campfire. The code can be configured as a post-build hook by adding the following to the Rakefile in your repository:
desc "Run post-build script"
task :post_build_hook do
if ENV['TDDIUM'] && ENV['GTALK_LOGIN'] then
This example guards execution of the hook by checking if the GTALK_LOGIN environment variable is set. You could also do it by checking for one (or more) of the other environment variables that should be defined for the hook to run — GTALK_TARGET and GTALK_PASSWORD.
Try this out and please let us know what you think!
