Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

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

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

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.

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

Hello, I am also having problems submitting an entry.

 

I am getting the following: 

Screenshot 2020-03-25 at 21.37.26.png

 

I've seen similar queries here but not sure why mine fails. 

 

Requirements: 

- Be public and open sourced. ✅
- Have been created between 12:01 am PT on Thursday, March 5 and 11:59 pm PT on Tuesday, March 31. ✅
- Have a shareable license. ✅
- Have an action.yml file. ✅
- Be owned by you. ✅
- Have a commit history that lists you as the primary author. ✅

 

I've also added branding and author metadata. 

 

Does anyone know what am I missing?

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

Hi, I think I may have narrowed to the our API usage not know the user that originated repo.

Can you how you started the project? It appears there are two different users committing, but both have your name. Once we can narrow that down, we work towards a fix.

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

That's both me. I've created the repo through the GitHub dashboard. Committed through my terminal and when I was testing the workflow or when editing the Readme I was doing it through the web GUI on GitHub.

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

Interesting, thanks for the clarification. Can you try now? We just merge a potential fix.

 

I can now try on my end as well now that I have more context.

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

Just tried and I get an error that I'm not the author of the action.yml.

Should I recreate the action?

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

Just an update, I've added my secondary email to github and I've managed to submit. 

 

The following command was outputting one of my secondary emails instead of the one linked to my Github account. 

git config --global user.email

 

Thanks for the help

Re: Featured Event: GitHub Actions Hackathon

Hi, I just got an email with the following text:


Congratulations on submitting to the GitHub Hackathon. We are reaching out to let you know, per the rules you are only 1 or 2 users away from qualifying for a prize.

Make sure you have enabled your Action in your repos and told others about your new tool for automation. Be sure to use the #githubhackathon hashtag on Twitter so others can try it out too!

Happy Hacking


 

What exactly does this mean? Does it mean I don't qualify, I will qualify, or I have to do something to qualify?

I'm fairly certain I was within the first 1,000...
