Debug your GitHub Actions by using tmate

This GitHub Action offers you a direct way to interact with the host system on which the actual scripts (Actions) will run.

Getting Started

By using this minimal example a tmate session will be created.

name: CI
on: [push]
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    - uses: actions/checkout@v1
    - name: Setup tmate session
      uses: mxschmitt/action-tmate@v1

To get the connection string, just open the Checks tab in your Pull Request and scroll to the bottom. There you can connect either directly per SSH or via a web based terminal.
