GitHub Action for GitHub Push

The GitHub Actions for pushing to GitHub repository local changes authorizing using GitHub token.

With ease:

  • update new code placed in the repository, e.g. by running a linter on it,
  • track changes in script results using Git as archive,
  • publish page using GitHub-Pages,
  • mirror changes to a separate repository.
