GitHub Action

You can use yq in your GitHub action, for instance:

- uses: actions/[email protected]
- name: Get SDK Version from config
id: lookupSdkVersion
uses: mikefarah/[email protected]
cmd: yq eval '.renutil.version' 'config.yml'
- name: Restore Cache
id: restore-cache
uses: actions/[email protected]
path: ../renpy
key: ${{ runner.os }}-sdk-${{ steps.lookupSdkVersion.outputs.result }}
restore-keys: |
${{ runner.os }}-sdk
# ... more

The yq action sets a result variable in its output, making it available to subsequent steps. In this case it's available as steps.lookupSdkVersion.outputs.result.

Details of how the GitHub action itself is configured can be found here

If you enable step debug logging, you can see additional information about the exact command sent as well as the response returned within the GitHub Action logs.
