GoRelease Action

Usage

Workflow

name: goreleaser

on:
  pull_request:
  push:

jobs:
  goreleaser:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      -
        name: Checkout
        uses: actions/checkout@v2
        with:
          fetch-depth: 0
      -
        name: Set up Go
        uses: actions/setup-go@v2
        with:
          go-version: 1.15
      -
        name: Run GoReleaser
        uses: goreleaser/goreleaser-action@v2
        with:
          # either 'goreleaser' (default) or 'goreleaser-pro'
          distribution: goreleaser
          version: latest
          args: release --rm-dist
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
          # Your GoReleaser Pro key, if you are using the 'goreleaser-pro' distribution
          # GORELEASER_KEY: ${{ secrets.GORELEASER_KEY }}

IMPORTANT: note the fetch-depth: 0 input in Checkout step. It is required for the changelog to work correctly.

Run on new tag

If you want to run GoReleaser only on new tag, you can use this event:

on:
  push:
    tags:
      - '*'

Or with a condition on GoReleaser step:

      -
        name: Run GoReleaser
        uses: goreleaser/goreleaser-action@v2
        if: startsWith(github.ref, 'refs/tags/')
        with:
          version: latest
          args: release --rm-dist
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}

For detailed instructions please follow GitHub Actions workflow syntax.

Signing

If signing is enabled in your GoReleaser configuration, you can use the Import GPG GitHub Action along with this one:

      -
        name: Import GPG key
        id: import_gpg
        uses: crazy-max/ghaction-import-gpg@v4
        with:
          gpg_private_key: ${{ secrets.GPG_PRIVATE_KEY }}
          passphrase: ${{ secrets.PASSPHRASE }}
      -
        name: Run GoReleaser
        uses: goreleaser/goreleaser-action@v2
        with:
          version: latest
          args: release --rm-dist
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
          GPG_FINGERPRINT: ${{ steps.import_gpg.outputs.fingerprint }}

And reference the fingerprint in your signing configuration using the GPG_FINGERPRINT environment variable:

signs:
  - artifacts: checksum
    args: ["--batch", "-u", "{{ .Env.GPG_FINGERPRINT }}", "--output", "${signature}", "--detach-sign", "${artifact}"]

Upload artifacts

For some events like pull request or schedule you might want to store the artifacts somewhere for testing purpose. You can do that with the actions/upload-artifact action:

      -
        name: Run GoReleaser
        uses: goreleaser/goreleaser-action@v2
        with:
          version: latest
          args: release --rm-dist
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
      -
        name: Upload assets
        uses: actions/upload-artifact@v2
        with:
          name: myapp
          path: dist/*

Install Only

steps:
  -
    name: Install GoReleaser
    uses: goreleaser/goreleaser-action@v2
    with:
      install-only: true
  -
    name: Show GoReleaser version
    run: goreleaser -v

Customizing

inputs

Following inputs can be used as step.with keys

Name Type Default Description
distribution String goreleaser GoReleaser distribution, either goreleaser or goreleaser-pro
version¹ String latest GoReleaser version
args String Arguments to pass to GoReleaser
workdir String . Working directory (below repository root)
install-only Bool false Just install GoReleaser

¹ Can be a fixed version like v0.117.0 or a max satisfying semver one like ~> 0.132. In this case this will return v0.132.1.

environment variables

Following environment variables can be used as step.env keys

Name Description
GITHUB_TOKEN GITHUB_TOKEN as provided by secrets
GORELEASER_KEY Your GoReleaser Pro License Key, in case you are using the goreleaser-pro distribution

Limitation

GITHUB_TOKEN permissions are limited to the repository that contains your workflow.

If you need to push the homebrew tap to another repository, you must therefore create a custom Personal Access Token with repo permissions and add it as a secret in the repository. If you create a secret named GH_PAT, the step will look like this:

      -
        name: Run GoReleaser
        uses: goreleaser/goreleaser-action@v2
        with:
          version: latest
          args: release --rm-dist
        env:
          GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GH_PAT }}
