Plugin development is fun! But deploying a new version of a plugin to the Plugin Directory using SVN is a pain! We usually develop plugins using Git, hosting the code on GitHub. But up until this year, deploying those plugins to the plugin directory was a rather hard manual task.

Now with the new GitHub actions becoming available for all repositories, we can utilize pre-defined automated tasks to deploy a new version of a plugin. It’s even possible to just update the readme file, which is even more complicated in the current Subversion environment.

This talk will show you, how you can use GitHub actions to make your life as a plugin developer a lot easier and bringing back the fun to develop plugins.
