Hey, this is Steve at Dabble Lab. In this tutorial we’re going to explore using GitHub Actions to automate the deployment of Twilio Functions.
For most of my projects that use Twilio Functions, I use the Twilio Console to create and manage my code and assets. But as much as I love the ease of working in the web console, it’s not always the best option. For example, when working on mission-critical apps, complex or frequently updated apps, and when collaborating with other developers, I always want to have continuous integration and continuous delivery processes in place. But at the moment, continuous integration and continuous delivery functionality is not provided by the Twilio Console. The good news is setting up CI/CD workflows for your Twilio Functions is relatively simple using GitHub Actions.
GitHub Actions allow you to automate, customize, and execute software development workflows from within your GitHub repositories. You can use GitHub Actions to perform just about any job, including CI/CD workflows.
Actions are event-driven and are executed as part of a workflow. For example, you can trigger a workflow every time new code is pushed to a repository. Workflows can be set up to contain one or more jobs. Jobs are composed of steps that control the order in which actions are run.
Workflows are executed on a runner. A runner is a server that has the GitHub Actions runner software installed. However, you don’t have to set up your own server because GitHub provides runners for you. A runner listens for events, runs the jobs one at a time, updates progress logs, and returns the final results back to GitHub.
To automate the deployment of our function code, we’re going to use the Twilio CLI along with the Twilio Serverless Plugin.
The Twilio CLI is a developer tool for managing Twilio resources from your terminal or command prompt. In most cases, the Twilio CLI is installed and used on local development workstations. However, in our case, we’re going to install and use the CLI on a GitHub Actions runner.
In addition to using the Twilio CLI, we’re also going to use the Twilio Serverless Plugin for the Twilio CLI. Although everything we’ll be doing could be done without the plugin, the plugin will simplify the workflow.
