Your action.yml is commented out. Please refer to the help docs and the rules for a guide on usability regarding submissions and the action.yml.

Hey,

I have updated the yml file.

But,

Is there any major relevancy of yml file with our repo for GitHub Actions Hackathon.

Which errors are you getting when you tried submitting. 

Not really sure though but i added a workflow to mine

It gets rejected stating that action is not a usable action,

I have updated the yml file but is there any other relevancy of our yml file for GitHub Actions Hackathon for our repo.

Try to add a workflow to the folder to showcase a working example. It might help.

it might also be because of this

" Twitter  and most other major sites  do  not like getting  scraped. They tolerate “polite” crawlers because it’s easier than blocking them all. However: If you  scrape  them and then publicly post the data, be prepared to have them shut down any API access you have, and potentially take action against your account."

I also saw this in your readme.

“To ensure you can login with your Twitter account, edit the credentials.txt file and enter your email and password in the respective fields and kindly keep the formatting correct of the file to ensure a smooth login without errors.”

Saving your important credentials in the credentials.txt file can pose a security risk

Hi,

I keep getting this error below.

It’s not finding the action.yml file. I saw on another thread having a similar issue so followed the step there and moved the file to the root folder. But doesn’t seem to work.  Can I get some assistance with this, please?

My repo: https://github.com/dy1z/github-actions-melbourne-weather-bot 

. Have you checked for errors in syntax?

I saw this in your action file: WEATHER_API_TOKEN: ${secrets.WEATHER_API_TOKEN} try and change it to WEATHER_API_TOKEN: ${{secrets.WEATHER_API_TOKEN}} 

added an extra bracket

Hey,

Thanks for the response,

I have submitted that updated yml file yesterday but again it states that

action.yml is missing required items and gets rejected.

Will surely keep your comments in guideline while submitting next time.

Did you add the author field?

I just updated the yml file and added workflow but there was a error in the py test and can’t find the solution for that.

Please have a look and guide me on that ASAP,

I am no longer seeing an action.yml in the repo.

Thanks for the response,

Pls check again in workflow,

There is a error in pytest and I can’t get the solution of it.

I do not know for sure, but I assume our automated submission checking is following over because the original author of the code is not a searchable GitHub user. 

It looks like “WP Freelancer” is not searchable on GitHub. Can you confirm if this is a deleted account or a bot?

It seems you may have hit an edge case we did not account for, and I will need more info before suggesting the fix.

The rules outline you need to be the primary author and in the majority of th commits as well. Your repo seems to qualify, but I am providing the context to explain our check that is failing on those commits.
