Jenkins Room for Improvement

There are a lot of things that they can try to improvise. They can reduce a lot of configurations. It is currently supporting Groovy for scripting. It would be really good if it can be improvised for Python because, for most of the automation, we have Python as a script. It would be good if can also support Python.

We have a lot of Android builds. These Android builds can be a part of Jenkins. It can have some plug-ins or configurations for Android builds. There should also be some internal matrix to check the performance. 

We also want to have more REST API support, which is currently not much in Jenkins. We are not able to get more information about running Jenkins. More REST API support should be provided.

Its schedule builds need improvement. It should have scheduling features in the platform rather than using external plug-ins.

The documentation could be more friendly, and more examples of how to use it. This would make for easier implementation in several environments.

I would like to have more Steps commands for better integration with other platforms.

Better and easy-to-use integration with Docker would be an improvement.

I think an integrated help button, that respected the context of the change/work in hand, would be a worthwhile improvement.
