GitHub Issues

GitHub - More than a Git repo

Chris is the blogger, podcaster, host, and producer of his content platform CloudWithChris.com. He uses GitHub to manage, develop, build and deploy it. In this session, Chris explores how GitHub is more than just a Git repository, and how he uses it for his own work:

  • GitHub Issues / Projects to plan the content (Blog & Podcast) backlog - GitHub repositories to version control the website’s source code (and recently open sourced the theme) - GitHub Codespaces to make changes to the site from any device - GitHub actions to build/deploy the site, and publish podcast mp3 files

Automate adding GitHub Issues to GitHub Projects (Beta) in a repository owned by a user

I recently wrote a blog post about using GitHub Actions to automatically add a GitHub Issue to a GitHub project (Beta) when the issue is opened. I received a question from my colleague and maintainer of the promitor and KEDA Open Source (OSS) Projects, Tom Kerkhove on doing the same with a user-owned GitHub repository, rather than organisation-owned.

Automate adding GitHub Issues to GitHub Projects (Beta) in a GitHub organisation

I’ve been following the GitHub Projects beta for a while now, and have been fortunate to be accepted as an early adopter. I’m a big fan of the direction, and the flexibility. One of the limitations I’ve noticed is that there’s currently no built-in way to automatically add an issue to a project board. It’s on the backlog, but not yet available. Fortunately, GitHub Actions has us sorted. I’ll walk you through a sample I put together to do exactly that.
