CI & CD in React App using Github Actions.

I am learning to write test cases for React App and for that I have built small, minimal React Login app. I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to integrate Github Actions in my project for CI pipeline.

I am using React Testing Library and Jest for testing the React App.

My Workflow

For starter I have added unit cases to my App, and using Github Action I do a test run and if all test cases passes I let user to push or merge a pull request to master.

Action Used :

  • actions/checkout@v2
  • actions/setup-node@v1


name: Unit Test Run

    branches: [master]
    branches: [master]

    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
        node-version: [12.x, 14.x]
      - uses: actions/checkout@v2
      - uses: actions/setup-node@v1
          node-version: ${{ matrix.node-version }}
      - run: yarn install
      - run: yarn test

I will be adding following feature in future as I learn and develop :

  • E2E testing using Cypress and Github Actions.
  • CD pipeline using Netlify/Vercel and Github Actions

Maintainer Must-Haves

In an open-source project when a good amount of PRs are being raised then automatic Test Run can be your first line of defence to avoid introduction of bugs in your project.
