I would like to share my experience in connection with use of GitHub actions for building Keyman keyboard packages.
I have a private repository in GitHub for storing some Keyman keyboard source files. I already added
resources directories along with the
build.sh script to my repository from the Keyman keyboard repository for the purpose of building keyboard packages and validating .keyboard_info files.
Earlier I used clone of the keyboards-starter repository for this purpose.
Now I added the below code to
my-repository/.github/workflows/build-keyboards.yml to set up a github action for building Keyman keyboard packages.
name: Build Keyboards on: push: paths: - 'trigger.txt' - 'release/**' jobs: Build: runs-on: windows-latest defaults: run: shell: bash steps: - name: Checkout uses: actions/checkout@v3 - name: Build Keyboards run: ./build.sh release - name: Archive Artifacts uses: actions/upload-artifact@v3 with: name: Keyman Keyboards path: release/*/*/build
It is working perfectly when changing source files.
