    The comprehensive guide to GitHub Actions and Firebase Hosting


    Just the other week at Firebase we released a feature we're really excited about, preview channels. Preview channels are a fantastic way to deploy versions of your site to a generated, expirable, URL. For many of you, this immediately gets you thinking. "Hey, I'd love to deploy a preview channel whenever a pull request is created on GitHub" And that's exactly what you can do with GitHub Actions, which is an awesome way to automate tasks in response to events in GitHub. In today's episode I'm going to talk all about how this works from the ground up. I'm going to: - Give you a crash course on how GitHub Actions work - Dive into how the Firebase CLI sets up the Action with your Firebase project - Go over what the Firebase Hosting GitHub Action does.
