Hi David,

Have a look here:

You'll have to hack the web page as discussed here:


I ended up just keying off the file extension instead of using getText(), which doesn't work with new style steps.

if original.name.endswith('.html'):

instead of

if original.getText().startswith('<html'):

Subject: [Buildbot-devel] html logfiles in step


I have a Test build step (from buildbot.steps.shell, buildbot 0.8.10), which as an HTML file passed in the `logfiles` argument.

I would like the HTML file to be renderer as HTML, not "raw text", is it possible?

The HTML file embeds png images (<img src="data:image/png;base64,...">).

It also contain <html>, <head>, <body>, <h1> etc, but I can adpat it.

Or do I have a write a new BuildStep and use addHTMLLog (http://docs.buildbot.net/0.8.12/manual/customization.html#writing-log-files)?

By the way, the RunCleanup example
(http://docs.buildbot.net/0.8.12/manual/customization.html#running-commands) is not clear for me. There is a run method of the RunCleanup class, then a run function. Is it a typo?
