Welcome to Anvil, a testing service for the UK academic community.


Testing is an important part of any software project and being able to run tests on a range of platforms in an automated manner makes the tests more valuable. Anvil is a centrally run service, based on Jenkins, with access to third party software for UK academic users. You can see the Jenkins instance here.

Academics can log in with their institutional credentials, making setting up an account and getting started even easier!

Currently licenses for the Intel compiler suite, NAG Fortran compiler are available alongside a ride range of open source compilers, tools and libraries. For a complete list please see the Operating Systems and Software page in our user guide.

For more information about the features we provide, along with help in getting started please see the User Guide.
