Types of GitHub Actions
Simplified integration to run code based on events and pull integrations from NPM
- Deps need to either be installed on the runner before running the action or bundled up into the action itself (use something like webpack, rollup, parcel, etc)
- Running on the main hardware so be aware of OS specific gotchas
Full Control of a system with easy installation of any application
- Only available on the Ubuntu runner.
- May have some overhead if the docker image is not prebuilt and pushed to a registry. Will need to then build the container every single time it is run
