Top 17 Shell Action Projects

  • super-linter

    Combination of multiple linters to install as a GitHub Action

    Project mention: TL;DR: Move CI/CD scripts into .automation | | 2022-09-28

    Here is a good example:

  • flutter-action

    Flutter environment for use in GitHub Actions. It works on Linux, Windows, and macOS.

    Project mention: Deploying Flutter applications to Google Play using Github actions | | 2022-09-15

    To build flutter applications though, we need an additional action called flutter-action - available here.

  • Zigi

    Workflow assistant built for devs & their teams. Automate the mundane part of your day, with live actionable messages for your GitHub & Jira tasks.

  • s3-sync-action

    🔄 GitHub Action to sync a directory with a remote S3 bucket 🧺

    Project mention: Nestjs + Nextjs Monorepo with AWS | | 2022-01-29

    I would consider sending the UI build files to S3 using either cloud formation or Github Actions. For the backend, sounds like a docker container could serve you well and cloudformation or Github Actions can handle this.

  • changed-files

    :octocat: Github action to retrieve all (added, copied, modified, deleted, renamed, type changed, unmerged, unknown) files and directories.

    Project mention: GitHub Actions Pitfalls | | 2022-09-26
  • gh-action-pypi-publish

    GitHub Action, for publishing distribution files to PyPI:

    Project mention: "Even with --dry-run pip will execute arbitrary code found in the package's In fact, merely asking pip to download a package can execute arbitrary code" | | 2022-09-21

    Yeah, you're uploading to PyPi in your pipeline, great. The custom github action still uses twine because the stdlib falls short on BASIC security.

  • chart-releaser-action

    A GitHub Action to turn a GitHub project into a self-hosted Helm chart repo, using helm/chart-releaser CLI tool

    Project mention: Autohelm generation | | 2022-05-21

    Not exactly what you are asking about but I have been pretty happy with this

    Run a security scan on your terraform with the very nice

  • action-get-latest-tag

    ✨ GitHub Action to get a latest Git tag

    Project mention: Git 2.30.3 will not operate in non-owned directories | | 2022-04-12

    This certainly came as a surprise to my team today.

    We operate some number of repositories and the majority of them use - or more specifically, a fork of that repo which more or less works the same way.

    Midday today our CI/CD started failing. We must have hit this so soon because the `apk add git` in that Dockerfile grabbed the new git version. Evidently the SID that ultimately executed the git command inside the included actions' dockerfile was not the same as the one that owned `/github/workspace` on the runner.

    We were able to patch around using the new `` option, but I'm curious to see if there's more fallout since CI/CD environments in particular had benefit from this sort of shared repository.

  • OCR-PDF-Action
