execute actions in containers in GitHub based on any event trigger
Interesting! Didn’t see GitHub going in this direction
Guess it’s playing catch-up with GitLab
Looks very interesting
Yea, signed up for the beta. Hope they release invites quickly.
Wonder what all the GitHub partners think about this
CI/CD is the biggest commercial vertical in the GitHub ecosystem
interesting how they are going to manage secrets
interesting or wonder?
If you could bring your own PaaS to that - ECS etc. then it would be very compelling. I feel lots of companies underestimate how hard it is to manage the orchestration of a high volume container platform with a varied array of tasks being run on top of it. Look at the CircleCI status page for an example.
An outage to a build pipeline is a blocker that wastes quite a bit of money if a company is pushing at a reasonable velocity.
not an orchestrator, but easy to use for deployments
Interesting - have you found much overhead compare to using a managed CI service? Also I suppose you lose support for the pipelines as code pattern with this? i.e. no build manifest.yml/json ?
fargate cli not a complete e2e alternative
Good to see alternatives exist
Well - good to hear honest people talking about using alternatives
Have had a pretty good experience with Circle - only a few limitations bug me
the story is that that the
fargate cli was written by an engineer at AWS to show the ECS team what kind of cli tool users want
to make it as easy as using heroku
so far, aws hasn’t taken him up on the suggestion!
do you guys use any tools to automatically generate change logs?
explored it briefly, but didn’t end up doing anything
maybe it would be a nice github action
have you guys been added to the beta yet? we signed up but are still in the queue waiting for them to activate
i’ve found some js tools but was curious if you had some that use go/python
still waiting for GitHub actions
@Gabe if you use it, Jira can generate a changelog once you’ve made a release on your project
