GitHub Actions

Automate, customize, and execute your software development workflows right in your repository with GitHub Actions. You can discover, create, and share actions to perform any job you'd like, including CI/CD, and combine actions in a completely customized workflow.



What Is GitHub Action and How Do They Help

Software development is an industry that works on collaboration. Multiple teams from different domains work together to build a good product. However, every software needs an upgrade, and since many people work together on a single project at the same time, a platform that can provide the following functionalities is needed.

GitHub is the answer to these challenges.

GitHub Actions

GitHub is a cloud-based hosting service that provides a user-friendly UI experience to the users for git versioning. Users can also create unlimited repositories on the platform where they can store code files, images, and other essentials required to run the project

Introduction to GitHub Actions

Now since we are familiar with GitHub and repository, we can move to GitHub Actions tutorial.

In simple words, GitHub Actions enables the user to create custom Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) workflows in their GitHub repositories. It gives a privilege to the repository owner to write individual actions and then combine them to create a custom workflow of their choice for their project. GitHub Actions also provides the facility to build end-to-end Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Deployment (CD) capabilities directly in the repository.

However, the owner does not need to write the actions by themselves. GitHub has an inbuilt market place where people can find the actions created by other people, and reuse them if it fits their needs. Since GitHub actions is enabled on all repositories and organizations by default, extra efforts are not needed for getting started with it.
