My Workflow

Dear All, this is my second entry for #ActionsHackathon Echo the Release - this GitHub Action helps you to notify your Alexa device if there is a new release for the projects that you have configured.

This GitHub action notifies your Echo device if there is a new release of your favorite GitHub repos that you have been following.

This GitHub action notifies your Echo device if there is a new release of your favorite GitHub repos that you have been following.

Echo-The-Release-Banner

How to use this GitHub Action?

Following are the prerequisites to configure the notifications.

  • Compatible Echo device such as Echo, Echo Show etc.
  • Free account at Thomptronics. Follow the steps mentioned here to integrate your Echo and Notify Me skill.
  • List of GitHub repositories that you are following and their API should expose the release details. E.g. https://api.github.com/repos/QAInsights/Sample-Repo/releases/latest is exposing the release, tag etc.

Steps to configure this action:

  • Fork this repo.
  • Create a folder for each repository that you need to be alerted. Inside each folder, create echo.txt file.
  • Create a Repo scoped token and configure under your secret ECHO_KEY
  • Configure Notify Me API key under your secret ECHO_TOKEN
  • Configure the below YAML to suite your needs. You can add multiple repositories. Recommended count…
