Text to Action is an open-source web app that utilizes OpenAI’s GPT model to generate GitHub Actions from text descriptions.
Users can describe deployment workflows, build scripts, and other automation tasks in simple English, and the tool handles translating that to executable GitHub actions.
How to use it:
1. Access the Text to Action web application.
2. Type in a clear and concise description of what you want your GitHub Actions to do.
3. Click the “Generate” button and the AI will process your text to produce the corresponding GitHub action.
How to deploy it:
1. Clone the project from GitHub to your local machine or server.
git clone https://github.com/pulgueta/Text-to-Action
2. Install the required dependencies.
# NPM npm install # Yarn yarn install # PNPM pnpm install # Bun bun install
3. Add your OpenAI API key to the
4. Run the Text to Action app.
# NPM npm run dev # Yarn yarn dev # PNPM pnpm dev # Bun bun dev
What Are GitHub Actions
GitHub Actions are automated software workflows that allow you to perform tasks like continuous integration, deployment, and testing directly within your GitHub repositories.
They are powered by YAML-based workflow files that define sequences of jobs and steps to execute when triggered by GitHub events like pushes, pull requests, or scheduled times.
GitHub Actions eliminate the need to use external CI/CD platforms and let you build, test, and deploy your code entirely within GitHub with its robust automation capabilities. Actions can be shared, reused, and community-driven like GitHub repositories to accelerate your development workflows.
