    Narakeet GitHub Action

    GitHub Action to build videos from files in GitHub repositories using Narakeet.

    Narakeet (formerly Video Puppet) allows you to create narrated videos quickly from markdown scripts and media assets, and edit videos as easily as editing plain text. It makes it easy to version control videos, include video building into continuous integration and generate video with multiple formats and languages from the same assets.

    This action makes it easy to integrate Narakeet into GitHub continuous integration pipelines. For example, commit a new version of the app, take screenshots with Puppeteer, then update instructional videos automatically to reflect the latest version of the application.

    Check out some nice examples.

    Inputs

    github-token

    Required The GitHub action Authentication Token to access the repository. Use ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }} to automatically set it to the token generated for the action

    api-key

    Required Narakeet API Key for your account. To obtain a key, write to contact@narakeet.com.

    Do not store the token directly in the action. Instead, store it as an encrypted secret to your repository, and then reference as ${{ secrets.SECRET_NAME }}.

    source-path

    Required Relative path to the main video script file (.md for markdown, .yaml for YAML and .json for JSON scripts); for example hello-world/script/source.md. Do not include the starting slash.

    result-file

    Optional Local file system path for the result file; if you do not set this, the action will use the file name generated by Narakeet. You will be able to read out the resulting file in any case from the action outputs.

    api-url

    Optional override for the API URL, used only for developers when testing; ignore this parameter unless you are developing this action.

    Outputs

    video-file

    Resulting video file, ready for uploading to GitHub action artifacts or further processing.

    video-url

    Temporary secure (signed) video URL - valid for 10 minutes - which can be used to download the video directly from Narakeet servers.

    Example usage

    The following workflow will generate a video using this action, then upload it to the workflow artifacts.

    name: Make videos
    on: [push]
    jobs:
      build:
        runs-on: ubuntu-latest
        steps:
        - uses: narakeet/build-video-github-action@v1.0.2
          id: video
          with:
            source-path: hello-world/script/script.md
            github-token: ${{ secrets.GITHUB_TOKEN }}
            api-key: ${{ secrets.API_KEY }}
        - uses: actions/upload-artifact@v1
          with:
            name: video
            path: "${{ steps.video.outputs.video-file }}"
    

    You will be able to access the generated video from the Artifacts menu in your GitHub Workflow
