GitHub Actions feature a powerful execution environment integrated into every step of your workflow. You can discover, create, and share GitHub Actions to perform any job you'd like.

Notes:

  • GitHub Actions is currently available in a limited public beta. During the limited public beta, you should not use it for high-value workflows and content. You can request to join the limited public beta on the GitHub Actions page.

  • You can create actions for your own use in private repositories or to share with others in public repositories. During the limited public beta, you can only configure workflows in private repositories.

About GitHub Actions

GitHub Actions enable everyone to create tasks and share them with others on GitHub.

Creating a workflow with GitHub Actions

You can use GitHub's visual editor to create your workflow and manage its actions, or you can manually create a workflow file using a text editor.

Viewing your repository's workflows

You can watch your repository's workflows run and see their status.
