tl;dr: This URL was posted to hackernews automatically from a github action I wrote: action-hackernews-post.

Motivations

Earlier this year I started writing online regularly. I committed to a pace of weekly updates on my creative project—24HourHomepage—all posted on Medium.

I recently migrated all my articles from Medium to this domain with the hopes of having a "write once, publish many" sort of flow.

So I wrote this github action to submit a URL and title to hackernews.

Applications

Installations

When configuring your github actions workflow, add the package like so

          
uses: higgins/action-hackernews-post@v1.0.1
with:
  HN_USERNAME: ${{ secrets.HN_USERNAME }}
  HN_PASSWORD: ${{ secrets.HN_PASSWORD }}
  POST_TITLE: "A clock where every second is user submitted content"
  POST_URL: https://24HourHomepage.com
          
        

Be sure to set HN_USERNAME and HN_PASSWORD in github secrets or via another secure method.

For a full example, read this repo's workflow source.
