FINALLY! Start your GitHub Actions manually!

The possibility to manually trigger a workflow in GitHub Actions is probably one of the most requested features ever.

People have tried to achieve that with some workaround, using APIs or other custom triggers... but now we finally have the official way to manually trigger an Actions workflow.

Today we talk about a long awaited feature in GitHub Actions that is finally here: the manually trigger.

Not only you can add the new trigger and enable the "Run Workflow" button, you can also customize the experience using custom input values!

And I'm gonna show you how, right now.

Enjoy the watch!


I'm super happy we finally have this feature! And as you have seen it is very, very easy to use.

What do you think of it? How do you plan on using it? Let me know in the comment section below.
