Github Action for PHP packages

GitHub recently launched GitHub Actions which allows applications to do CI/CD in GitHub itself based on a workflow defined in a yml file which lives alongside the code in .github/workflows much like if you used Travis CI, you would have a .travis.yml file.

Anyone looking to test PHP packages can just use the setup-php action, run the tests and do CI/CD. The action sets up PHP, along with required extensions, tools and configuration. The setup-php action works on all virtual environments viz. linux, macOS and windows supported by GitHub actions. For more info check the PHP Action
