Testing your software project is important. Effectively communicating your test results to those that consume your project comes in a close second.

These badges are perfect for inclusion in upstream webpages, and in Github README files.

To view a list of links and a short explanation of options related to a particular job, visit the 'Embeddable Build Status' link in the sidebar of each job page:
