Firedamp (source on github) is clojure application that has been a blast to write. It is a simple application that is meant to be a cheap stand-in for, which is an excellent service in itself.

Firedamp exists to fill a gap in some metrics that I found. I’ve frequently noticed that build times might be dragging with travis, codecov, and github. The goal is for this service to provide a single location that aggregates the simple human readable status messages for all of these services.

The architecture of the application is simple and uses some clojure libraries that I’ve come to really enjoy: ring, compojure, manifold, and aleph.
