We've actually built Pipelines [1] for that very reason; Jenkins has always felt over-engineered and unfriendly.

I'd be very interested in hearing from folks who are familiar with it what they think of our alternative.

This actually looks interesting. You can maybe containerize it to increase adoption/reduce setup time.

I agree with both the unfriendly and over-engineered part ;). But right now there is no other tool that provides a task runner PLUS all the plugins of Jenkins that provide so many features out of the box.

I'm a bit confused -- is this a UI for Jenkins, or a different system altogether?

It's a different Python thing. You can install it with just `pip install pipelines`.
