- Track: Deploying and Hosting
- Topic: What can we learn from Github Actions?
Github has recently launched "Actions" (https://github.com/features/actions) as a beta feature. Actions is a solution for automating workflows (testing, building, deploying, releasing). Workflow are defined by developer as a simple config (yaml) interpreted by a dedicated tool (open source). Whole automation is empowered by modern container technology. Ability to use the same containers, and even execute workflows using the very same tool on local machine, on the CI server, and why not on the deployment machine seems to make the differences between set ups a minor issue. With the growing adoption of containerization in the Wikimedia dev environment, are there any interesting ideas in Github's Actions that we could also adapt?
