    Project mention: whats your development process for github actions and how are you testing them? | | 2023-03-09

    Personally I use pre-commit with some of these hooks in addition to some default hooks.

Way faster to develop infrastructure code and fix issues than having to keep pushing to the remote repo and waiting for an Action to run.
