Recently i wrote this action to lint some python code.
name: kitto_linter on: push: branches: [master] pull_request: branches: [master] jobs: lint: runs-on: ubuntu-latest steps: - uses: actions/checkout@v2 - name: Set up Python 3.8 uses: actions/setup-python@v1 with: python-version: 3.8 - name: checking requirements.txt is ok run: | python -m pip install --upgrade pip pip install -r requirements.txt - name: purring and buying corn-flakes run: pip install flake8 - name: kitto is linting run: flake8 .
This just does the job, but I was wondering if I could implement something that comments the event that triggered the action (commit on master or pr) with the output of a command I run (specifically flake8 . this time).
While looking around I found this action however I can’t understand how to use a variable in the body ( i.e. I could assign output = flake8 . > flake8_output.txt).
How can I do this? Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance.
