Matt and I continued to build out our GitHub action yesterday that Tweets to a first-time contributor once their pull request is merged into the main branch of a public repository.

  • We got everything working except for sending out the actual Tweet, although we did output what would be Tweeted
  • We learnt that some environment variables are not automatic.
  • Tested the GitHub action some more with our test repository
  • Here's our GitHub actions repository if you want to take a peek

Thanks as always for hanging out with me on the stream Matt!

Improved workflows
Used Docker
Automated deployment
Reached a milestone

Sometimes when you start coding at 00:00 you want to stop at 00:00 and that's almost always going to be a bad idea. Guess what, 23 hours in, not even GitHub wanted us running any more workflows so they threw us a Thanksgiving surprise outage.

Closing in hot at 151 commits across 3 testing repositories, it's not about quantity but quality and this personal coding marathon milestone helped us progress preparations for the upcoming version 3 release of @open-sauced/semantic-release-conventional-config, a release so packed it's dropping version 4 on top of 3!

Meant to be a zero-config release companion to mtfoley/pr-compliance-action and a bold contender to the 2021 GitHub Actions Hackathon on DEV, it stays true to the @open-sauced pizza party, because what's better than releasing πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ•πŸ• with containerized GitHub actions?

Guess we'll just have to see!

Shoutouts @bdougie and @mtfoley!

Had another fun stream with Matt Foley today. We continued work on the Github action to Tweet to a first-time contributor whose PR gets merged.

The GitHub action isn't finished yet, but we made some great progress. We were able to have the action return the Twitter handle from the user profile of the user that created the pull request.
