⚠️ Deprecation of v1 and v2

As of May 28, 2022, v1 and v2 has been fully sunset and no longer functions

Due to the deprecation of the underlying utility functions, the TheActionDev GitHub Action has released v3 which will use the js-yaml library for parsing front-matter in articles.

I will be restricting any updates to the v1 and v2 Actions to security updates and hotfixes.

Migration from v1 and v2 to v3

The v3 uploader has a few breaking changes for users

  • Multiple tags have not been assigned as string with colon(,) or have been deprecated. Instead of use YAML Array List to assign it.
