Using Github Actions for Deploying Hugo


Before, whenever I tried updating this blog, I have to follow some steps:

  1. Write content
  2. Commit
  3. Run the publish to master scripts

Well, guess what, I can now remove that last script, because of Github actions.

But it was not without pain moving to this new platform. First, I had to read a lot of documents that don’t seem to relate to what I wanted to do. Well, shame on me for reading those, but they were fun, and I learned a lot. So, although I wasted a lot of time, it doesn’t matter for me, and I hope to reuse those learned lessons to my current job.

At first, I was trying to do everything by myself learning(fighting) with bash, but in the end, I used something that other people wrote.

Anyway, here’s my new github actions yaml definition
