Control the Probability of This GitHub Action from Passing/Failing

Just give it a percentage, say 50, and it will have a 50/50 chance of passing! Which means if you give it 0 or 10, it will fail all the time and most of the times respectively. 😏 Pretty cool right?

Additional info

  • This is my first GitHub action, and it’s written in JavaScript.
  • Generated from the JavaScript Action Template
  • Unit tests using Jest
  • This isn’t a submission to the Actions Hackathon because I’m not old enough (18+ only), but I made this to experiment with GitHub Actions
  • Feel free to try it out and give me some feedback
  • Contributions welcome - like having another input called fail_percentage so you can instead provide the fail probability? πŸ€”
  • Remember to ⭐ star the project if you liked it ;)
