Github Action not building and no logs are visible

Hi everyone.

I’m trying to use Github Actions, but I’m getting a failing build without much output.

This is all the output:

### FAILED build_it 05:42:03Z (530ms)

Here is the repository: https://github.com/Skarlso/blogsource

And here is the workflow file:

workflow "Publish Blog" {
  on = "push"
  resolves = ["publish_it"]
}

action "build_it" {
  uses = "./.github/actions/build_it@master"
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]
}

action "publish_it" {
  uses = "./.github/actions/publish_it@master"
  needs = ["build_it"]
  secrets = ["GITHUB_TOKEN"]
}

And here are the actions: https://github.com/Skarlso/blogsource/tree/master/.github

At this point I have no idea what the problem might be. :confused:

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers,

Gergely.

The problem was that it didn’t actually find the action to execute. I had to extract the actions into their respective repositories. Now it works.

Hey @skarlso thanks a lot for coming back to share what worked for you! In the meantime, we’re looking forward to seeing you around!
