Two of our applications now have CI jobs running on Actions. The setup was easy and we’re looking forward to using Actions for more applications.
We noticed that the test suites currently take a lot longer to run when compared to Circle CI. To a large degree this is attributable to a lack of dependency caching (which we’re glad to see is already being addressed). However, we have also noticed that the test suite itself takes notably longer (3m05s on Circle vs 5m15s on Actions)
Is this simply a lower spec machine that Actions are running on? Circle runs on a 2CPU/4096MB box.
It probably doesn’t make a difference, but we’re running Rails rspec tests. I know its still early days for Github actions, so perhaps comparisons like this are just premature.
