How to setup (You must follow steps 1 and 2 to make the action work)

Step 1: Create a yaml workflow file in your project

Go to the root of your project, and create the path to your workflow file. For example

mkdir -p .github/workflows

Here is an example of what to put in your .github/workflows/publish-npm.yml file to trigger the action.

name: Publish on Azure NPM registry
        branches: [master]
        runs-on: ubuntu-latest
        - uses: actions/checkout@v2
        - uses: ponicode/azure-devops-npm-action@master
              organisation: ponicode_org
              project: my_project
              registry: my_npm_registry
              user: unicorn
              password: ${{ secrets.AZURE_TOKEN }}
              scope: ponicode
        - run: cp `pwd`/.npmrc ~ # We need the .npmrc file in the $HOME directory
        - name: Install dependencies
          run: npm install
        - name: Build
          run: npm run build
        - name: Publish to Azure
          run: npm publish

This yaml file build and publish your project everytime you push on master

Step 2: Add your Azure DevOps token to github secrets

Go to Azure DevOps to generate a new token. More imformation on the offical documentation. Once your token is correctly base64 encoded, you can had it to your github secrets by following these steps:

  • Open your project on Github
  • Click on Settings
  • Click on Secrets
  • Click on New Secret
  • Name: AZURE_TOKEN, Value: (Paste your token from Azure)

That's it! Once this is done, the action will be triggered on every push to master.
