In case you go down a similar route, I had a few issues:
· It’s difficult to setup a dev environment in windows. I had to use Ubuntu 14 (not 15) on a virtual box. (Fortunately the ability to pull data from an external server using the proxy gulp options works great.)
· If you just need formatting changes you can edit the html templates for the stock pages.
· Creating a new plugin using the existing ones as templates is tricky. A typo can lead to silent failures starting up the server, but there’s a different way to run it through twisted which Pierre mentioned on the mailing list. (subject was “web ui dev env setup”)
· You have to “compile” your work first before it can be picked up by gulp. Look for “pip install –e” in the makefile for an example.
· I used googles material design library for a custom tab, which worked good, but I had to place a relative css import into the less file: @import (inline) “<relative path>”;

Subject: [users at bb.net] Creating an alternate web interface
How easy is it to create an alternate web interface to Buildbot 0.9.0b7?
The fact that buildbot-www has now been packaged seperately suggests to me that it's intended to have alternatives, but I couldn't find any documentation about it.
If anyone has any tips or pointers to places where I could read up on how to create an alternate interface, I'd be grateful.
(The current interface is lovely by the way, it's just that the company I work for wants to have a custom one).
