🕷 Build and release release APK when your push a new tag

Usage

To use the action simply add the following lines to your .github/workflows/android.yml and provide the required Secrets and Environment variables.

YML

name: Build & Publish Release APK

on:
  push:
    tags:
      - '*'

jobs:
  Gradle:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
    - name: checkout code
      uses: actions/checkout@v2
    - name: setup jdk
      uses: actions/setup-java@v1
      with:
        java-version: 11
    - name: Make Gradle executable
      run: chmod +x ./gradlew
    - name: Build Release APK
      run: ./gradlew assembleRelease
    - name: Releasing using Hub
      uses: kyze8439690/action-release-releaseapk@master
      env:
       GITHUB_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.TOKEN }}
       APP_FOLDER: app

Secrets

You'll need to provide this secret token to use the action (for publishing the APK). Enter these secrets in your Settings > Secrets

I am unsure as to why using the default GITHUB_TOKEN provided universally will fail to authorize the user. This is the only workaround that I'd found.

Environment Variables

You'll need to provide these environment variables to specify exactly what information is needed to build the APK.

  • APP_FOLDER: main folder to search for the apk. Most of the time, it's app
