When picking a build distribution with the current version of GitHub Actions [email protected] you really only have two choices: zulu or temurin.
Learn how to create a GitHub Action job that will build and test a Java-based project using Maven or Gradle.
Most people will start with using “git blame” (or the respective functionality within their IDE/editor).
But on most non-trivial projects, you usually end up with a refactoring commit, a rename, or a trivial cross-project fix like switching to another assertion library. At first glance, we only see the most recent changes, not the most important ones.
We need to carefully remove layer by layer of sand and dirt that has been swept over the real changes to unearth them.
Both for Maven and Gradle lovers there are different possibilities to build Java executables and GitHub provides the free tools to do so!
I decided to switch to an alternative approach in GitHub Actions.
Instead of committing, I updated the script to open a Pull Request. If I need to run the demo, I’ll merge it (and pull locally); if not, it will stay open. If an opened PR already exists, the action will overwrite it.
Now, I can schedule the action more frequently.
In this article, Almas and Frank show you how to start with an idea for a game and bring it to life in a prototype application. We will then modify the application to run on a Raspberry Pi and on a mobile device.
To give some background, some time ago my 10y old son challenged me to create a Snake-like game with emojis. He selected the emoji images and I “only” needed to do the programming bit, the easy part… Luckily Almas asked me if I had a topic for some pair-programming for his YouTube channel, and his question turned into a three-part series. My son is delighted because his idea is now a real game!
Native Applications for Multiple Devices from a Single JavaFX Project with Gluon Mobile and GitHub Actions
The power of JavaFX combined with the Gluon tools and GitHub actions is amazing. Building and distributing a truly cross-platform application has never been easier!
Really not a single code change is needed to run on different platforms. As you can see from the build processed, the exact same code is used to create native applications for both Windows, Linux, MacOS, iOS, and Android!
