ICYMI: you can now easily cache Docker builds in GitHub Actions 15 minutes builds are now taking 1 minute

If you’re using @Docker’s build-push-action, it’s a 2-line change: cache-from: type=gha cache-to: type=gha,mode=max

Full details on https://github.com/docker/build-push-action/pull/406 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/E7pI2LZXIAAcuDi.jpg

set-output (dash, not underscore)

that was a typo but after a few hours of head banging i finally figured it out, it wasn’t the print("::set-output") , it was that I was trying to reference a step output in a composite action that wasn’t exporting the output, if that makes any sense
