GitHub Actions Job Outputs

GitHub Actions now allows you to take step outputs and output them into other jobs. Now if you have a job that is dependent on some data from another job, instead of needing to save it in a file and upload an Artifact, you can just use Job Outputs and save just the data itself with minimal encoding:

name: Do things
on: push
jobs:
job1:
runs-on: ubuntu-latest
outputs:
url: $ # map step output to job output
steps:
- id: step1
name: send url to other job
run: echo "::set-output name=url::https://google.com"

job2:
runs-on: ubuntu-latest
needs: job1
steps:
- run: user/some-action@v1
with:
url: $ # grab job output here
