GitHub Actions CI/CD in Beta

GitHub (tweet, Hacker News):

GitHub Actions makes it easy to automate all your software workflows, now with world-class CI/CD. Build, test, and deploy your code right from GitHub. Make code reviews, branch management, and issue triaging work the way you want.


Hosted runners for every major OS make it easy to build and test all your projects. Run directly on a VM or inside a container.

Save time with matrix workflows that simultaneously test across multiple operating systems and versions of your runtime.

Free plans include 2,000 minutes per month, with extra macOS minutes available for $0.08 (10x the Linux price and 5x the Windows price).


And while we bet on this philosophy the industry is now seeing it as well. In September of 2015 we combined GitLab CI and GitLab version control to create a single application. By March of 2017, Bitbucket also realized the advantages of this architecture and released Pipelines as a built-in part of Bitbucket. In 2018, GitHub announced Actions with CI-like functionality built into a single application offering. In the last six months, JFrog acquired Shippable and Idera acquired Travis CI, showing a consolidation of the DevOps market and a focus on CI. The market is validating what we continually hear from our users and customers: that a simple, single DevOps application meets their needs better.


With about 3.44M job instances per week/13.76M per month, GitLab CI is growing at a rapid rate to help our customers and users with their deployment needs. Read on below to learn more about all of the exciting CI/CD features in the 12.0 series of releases that will help you to deploy your code quickly.
