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

Did some prework to get the project set up to work with inlining SVGs into Preact components. Using the babel-inline-react-svg plugin is fine, but since we use webpack aliases in the project, I had to bring in another plugin to handle module resolution.

This setup will allow us to inline SVGs using the webpack alias for the application as well as Storybook.

Some more fun today on my stream hanging with Matt where we continued to build out our GitHub action for Tweeting to first-time contributors of a repository.

  • We improved how we query to check if it's the first pull request that was merged thanks to the GitHub API
  • Tested the GitHub action some more with our test repository

Some helpful links we used during the stream:  

Thanks as always for joining me Matt!

I migrated our Storybook to webpack 5 this week. It's already brought us speed improvements, and once Storybook supports other bundlers, like Vite, I'll definitely be moving to that.

A small PR for the Forem project, but one that will save us from shipping code with missing translations.
