feature: install gh cli if not present #39

merged 2 commits into from Jul 14, 2022


Copy link

This PR implements a check if the gh cli is available and installs it from source otherwise.

If you know that your system does not provide this binary, you can also customize the version to be installed. To do this, simply specify an environment variable named GH_CLI_VERSION and the version string. When you declare such a variable, make sure that you follow the vendor's semver principle and do not prefix the version with a "v".

        uses: leonsteinhaeuser/project-beta-automations@vX.X.X
           GH_CLI_VERSION: 2.8.0

Why did I choose to install from sources?

Since I don't want to mess with keys and package managers, I decided to simplify this process and download the binary directly from the sources. Otherwise I would have to check which package manager is available, what the package name is and so on.

Closes: #38
