I recently came across Github Actions. It's a powerful tool. So, i thought of giving it a try. So, I used it to automate the build of react native android apk.
I created a GitHub repository for this project.

🚀 Github Action for React Native Build

Add the build.yml as follows

.github/workflows/build.yml

in the project.

name: build
on:
  push:
    branches:
      - master
jobs:
  install-and-test:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - name: Install npm dependencies
        run: |
          npm install
  build-android:
    needs: install-and-test
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps: 
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - name: Install npm dependencies
        run: |
          npm install
      - name: Build Android Release
        run: |
          cd android && ./gradlew assembleRelease
      - name: Upload Artifact
        uses: actions/upload-artifact@v1
        with:
          name: app-release.apk
          path: android/app/build/outputs/apk/release/

Build will be triggered as soon as the commit is pushed to the master branch.

After that, builded apk can be found under the artifact section
