Published Install azcopy v1 to GitHub Actions
I started using GitHub Actions.
GitHub Actions (and Azure Pipelines) has the advantage that it can be defined in units of Action compared to like Travis CI.
I didn’t want to write scripts every time, so I decided to release the original Action.
Install azcopy - GitHub Marketplace
GitHub Action steps: - uses: actions/checkout@v2 - uses: kheiakiyama/install-azcopy-action@v1 with: version: 'v10' …
In this article, I wouldn’t write about this Action.
See the link above and the GitHub repo for details.
How to make GitHub Actions
Please refer to the official polite documentation.
Actions are individual tasks that you can combine to create jobs and customize your workflow. You can create your own…
The code itself is based on a template repository for writing in TypeScript, which is officially provided.
Create a TypeScript Action with tests, linting, workflow, publishing, and versioning - actions/typescript-action
It was the first time I used the GitHub feature called Template.
Release is very easy and good
We can release by simply checking the release function on the GitHub repository.
Even after release, we can easily unpublish by simply unchecking. (Of course it will affect if there is already a user)
Publishing actions in GitHub Marketplace
You can publish actions in GitHub Marketplace and share actions you've created with the GitHub community. GitHub…
Good or bad namespace
In this Action, specify it as
This is the username + the repository name of GitHub.
As a result, there is no competition for obtaining names such as npm and ruby gems, which is common in package management.
Instead, I was wondering whether to add “action” to the repository name.
From the point of view of the user writing yaml, “action” is unnecessary, but I want to be able to identify it as a personal repository.
I decided to use the writing side ego.
Category is difficult to select
When publishing, select a Category from the following screen.
As you can see from the Action search screen below, there is no good category that applies to an action that installs something.
GitHub Marketplace: actions to improve your workflow
Menu Types Categories Filters Verification An entirely new way to automate your development workflow. 1940 results…
GitHub Actions often installs some tools due to the nature of building workflows from almost vanilla environments such as Windows, Ubuntu, Mac, etc. However, I couldn’t find category should apply to it.
Eventually, I decided to choose “Utilities”.
I want a branding preview of action.yml
The appearance on the Marketplace is defined by metadata as described above.
Unfortunately, we have to release this to know as a image.
I’m glad if the preview appears instead of the content as shown below.
Metadata syntax for GitHub Actions
You can create actions to perform tasks in your repository. Actions require a metadata file that uses YAML syntax…
Since it is released as OSS, I want to manage it so that no problems occur.
Welcome bug reports and requests.
