    Accelerating new GitHub Actions workflows

    YAML is a markup language. Not a build automation tool. This YAML document is being used to describe a Github Action. The github action seems to be using Bazel as the build automation tool which makes sense since Carbon and Bazel are Google projects.

  • Bazel

    a fast, scalable, multi-language and extensible build system

    Its using Bazel. YAML is just a format like XML or JSON for the config

  • InfluxDB

    Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.. InfluxDB is the Time Series Platform where developers build real-time applications for analytics, IoT and cloud-native services. Easy to start, it is available in the cloud or on-premises.
