Github Action to Yak

Is there a way to publish from a github action to a Yak server? I see you need the yak.exe to do the publishing, could we get this without installing Rhino?

Run yak.exe login --ci to get an auth token and set this in your build’s environment variables as YAK_TOKEN.

Thanks @will ! Finally got around trying this and it works after a few tries!

I am leaving here a partial action, that someone might find useful!

    - name: Download Yak
      env:
          ACTIONS_ALLOW_UNSECURE_COMMANDS: 'true'
      run: curl -o <path_to_yak_>/yak.exe http://files.mcneel.com/yak/tools/latest/yak.exe

    - name: Build Yak
      env:
          ACTIONS_ALLOW_UNSECURE_COMMANDS: 'true'
      run: ..\..\yak.exe build
      # I prepopulated a manifest file and copied it next to the .gha
      working-directory: <path_to_GHA_and_manifest>

    - name: Push new version to YAK
      run: |
        $YAK_FILE=$(ls *.yak)
        echo $YAK_FILE
        ..\..\yak.exe push $YAK_FILE
      working-directory: <path_to_GHA_and_manifest>
      # You should create a secret using the token from here: yak.exe login --ci
      env:
        YAK_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.YAK_TOKEN }}
