Hey,

is there one who already knows the best way how to use GitHub actions? I've created a workflow that works - but I would like to know if this is a good solution or if it should/could get improved?

This is how my Workflow looks like:

It should be self-explaining but at the end it should setup the Laravel app, compile the assets, export the static files and deploy them to netlify.

But at all: I have GH Actions working! 🎉 and they are pretty neat. Primary the schedule option is amazing to do regular things. In this case GH actions save me a whole server and deployment script but I still will have every time the latest version on production.

Have done my first full automated GH actions to netlify deployment: Astrotomic/astrotomic.info
Damn this is so cool! I only have to push my source code and everything else is done by GH. Combined with the auto commit step it would be even easy to use GH pages instead of netlify.

I did build one ages ago when it was on the old syntax format. I need to rebuild it in the new format, but had very little time to do it! :(

You mean the action {} format? It's nearly copy'n'paste of what's inside into a - uses: step. Most readmes are still on this format and it was pretty easy to solve. GitHub provides also perfect readable error messages if something in the general structure is wrong. You can check my netlify step. The readme only provided the action{} format.

🤯 today I've spent like 2h to switch a project from old code and custom VPS hosting to Stancy, static site delivery and GH pages hosting. It was so damn easy and fast. 😮
I'm happy, again, that Stancy worked like expected and is, proven, compatible with the next static site hoster. And again it's only ~30 lines of YAML for the whole automatic deployment.

I start to like GH actions more and more! 🎉
