😁 About

Actionsflow helps you automate workflows - it's a free IFTTT/Zapier alternative for developers. With Actionsflow you can connect your favorite apps, data, and APIs, receive notifications of actions as they occur, sync files, collect data, and more. We implemented it based on Github actions, and you use a YAML file to build your workflows. The configuration format is the same as Github actions, which makes it easy for you to get going if you've explored Github actions before. You can also use any Github actions as your job's steps.

You can learn more about the core concepts of Actionsflow here.

👀 How Actionsflow works

Actionsflow uses Github Actions' repository_dispatch event and scheduled event every 5 minutes to run Actionsflow triggers. Those triggers generate result items, which are cached and deduplicated, generating a standard Github actions workflow file with the trigger result. Finally, the workflows are executed using act (a tool for running GitHub Actions locally).

To learn more about how Actionsflow works, please see Core Concepts of Actionsflow.

🏁 Getting Started

  1. Create a public Github repository by using this link.

    A typical Actionsflow repository structure looks like this:

    ├── .github
    │   └── workflows
    │       └── actionsflow.yml
    ├── .gitignore
    └── workflows
    │   └── rss.yml
    │   └── webhook.yml
    └── package.json
  2. Create your workflow files inside the workflows directory

    A typical workflow file rss.yml looks like this:

        name: Make a Request to IFTTT
        runs-on: ubuntu-latest
          - uses: actionsflow/ifttt-webhook-action@v1
              event: notice
              key: ${{ secrets.IFTTT_KEY }}
              value1: ${{on.rss.outputs.title}}
              value2: ${{on.rss.outputs.contentSnippet}}
              value3: ${{}}

    For more information about the Actionsflow workflow file, see the Actionsflow workflow reference.

    You can find examples and inspiration on the Trigger List and on Awesome Actionsflow Workflows.

  3. Commit and push your updates to Github

Pushing to Github makes Actionsflow run the workflows you defined. You can view logs at your repository's actions tab on Github.

For more information about getting up and running, see Getting Started.
