GitHub Action for Using the ASK CLI and Bespoken Tools

It is always good practice in the world of programming to try to develop things that are reusable. So anyone can integrate what has been developed and can quickly start using it.

This is the philosophy behind a GitHub Action. Small individual and reusable tasks that we can combine to create jobs and customize our GitHub Actions workflows.

Prerequisites

Here are the technologies used in this project:

  1. Amazon Developer Account - How to create an account
  2. AWS Account - Sign up here for free
  3. ASK CLI - Install and configure ASK CLI
  4. GitHub Account - Sign up here for free
  5. Visual Studio Code

The Alexa Skills Kit Command Line Interface (ASK CLI) is a tool for us to manage our Alexa Skills and its related resources, such as AWS Lambda functions. With the ASK CLI, we have access to the Skill Management API, which allows us to manage Alexa Skills through the command line.

GitHub Actions

actions

GitHub Actions helps us to automate tasks within the software development lifecycle. GitHub Actions is event-driven, which means that we can run a series of commands after a specific event has occurred. For example, whenever someone creates a pull request for a repository, we can automatically run a pipeline on GitHub Actions.

An event automatically triggers the workflow, which contains one or more jobs. Then the jobs use steps to control the order in which the actions are executed. These actions are the commands that automate certain processes.

How to Compare Multiple GitHub Projects with Our GitHub Stats tool

If you have project code hosted on GitHub, chances are you might be interested in checking some numbers and stats such as stars, commits and pull requests.

You might also want to compare some similar projects in terms of the above mentioned stats, for whatever reasons that interest you.

We have the right tool for you: the simple and easy-to-use little tool called GitHub Stats.

Let’s dive right in to what we can get out of it.

Getting started

This interactive tool is really easy to use. Follow the three steps below and you’ll get what you want in real-time:

1. Head to the GitHub repo of the tool

2. Enter as many projects as you need to check on

3. Hit the Update button beside each metric

In this article we are going to compare three most popular machine learning projects for you.

How to Create a Custom GitHub Actions Using JavaScript — Beginner Level

In this blog, we are going to learn how to create our own custom GitHub action using javaScript.

Prerequisite

  • Basic JavaScript Knowledge
  • Basic Git & GitHub Knowledge

About GitHub Actions

Automate, customize, and execute your software development workflows right in your repository with GitHub Actions. You can discover, create, and share actions to perform any job you’d like, including CI/CD, and combine actions in a completely customized workflow.

Types of Actions

There are three types of actions: Docker container actions, JavaScript actions, and composite run steps actions.

JavaScript Custom Action

Let’s create a Custom GitHub Action using JavaScript by creating a public repo, once the repo is created, we can clone it to our local machine using VS Code or GitPod. You need to have Node.js 12.x or higher and npm installed on your machine to perform the steps described here. You can verify the node and npm versions with the following commands in a VS Code or GitPod terminal.

node --version 
npm --version

50+ Useful Kubernetes Tools for 2020 - Part 2

Introduction

Last year, we provided a list of Kubernetes tools that proved so popular we have decided to curate another list of some useful additions for working with the platform—among which are many tools that we personally use here at Caylent. Check out the original tools list here in case you missed it.

According to a recent survey done by Stackrox, the dominance Kubernetes enjoys in the market continues to be reinforced, with 86% of respondents using it for container orchestration.

(State of Kubernetes and Container Security, 2020)

And as you can see below, more and more companies are jumping into containerization for their apps. If you’re among them, here are some tools to aid you going forward as Kubernetes continues its rapid growth.

Deploying my portfolio website on Github Pages using Github Actions.

I recently deployed  my portfolio site and wanted to try out github actions and this is my experience of automating the deployment.

This article is more focused on how you can use the GitHub actions and how easy it is to deploy your code to GitHub pages rather than the portfolio site code.So every time you make an update or build to your website ,the changes are automatically reflected and this automated deploying process makes work much faster.

The way GitHub action works is you create actions in your repositories by creating one or more yaml files and these are called workflows.Workflows now can handle build tasks like CI CD. This means you use the action to test your code and push the site to the desired hosting platform (in this case GitHub pages ) when the main branch changes .

First step assuming that you have a GitHub account is to create a repository having your website code in it.Now I have a bootstrap website but in the future I do plan on adding node JS so I already added package.json.
