I have built an example of how you can connect MongoDB to GitHub Actions and use it as a reward system for a repo's contributors.
This might be a
DIY Deployments submission and the action runs on every push and helps figure out who the committer is.
If not, then it is a
Wacky Wildcards submission.
The demo of the template can be found on https://github-actions-mongodb.vercel.app
This project includes a GitHub actions that runs on every push, gets the username of the user that has committed, and adds one token to their username profile in MongoDB.
It also comes with a dashboard, where the user can login with GitHub and spend their tokens on items.

I feel like a reward system always keeps me going and I wanted contributors to Open Source Communities to also feel the enthusiasm to keep them contributing.
I've always loved using MongoDB and I wanted to learn how to combine that with GitHub Actions.
I used React and Next.js to create this website, and then I hosted it on Vercel.
I obviously used MongoDB as a database, as it is great for people who like using NoSQL databases.
I learnt how to create and use GitHub Actions, and I also learnt how to run specific files with
I would like to give special thanks to the GitHub documentation for providing a lot of information which helped me create the Action.
