Getting Started

Get started with Actionsflow, the free, open-source tool for building powerful workflows.

For self-hosted version please see here

Building an Actionsflow workflow is basically a four-step process:

1. Create a Github repository

Click this link to generate a new public Github repository using the Actionsflow template. Choose whatever repository name you like (for example: actionsflow-workflow, workflow, my-workflow).

A typical Actionsflow repository structure looks like this:

├── .github
│ └── workflows
│ └── actionsflow.yml
├── .gitignore
└── workflows
│ └── rss.yml
│ └── webhook.yml
└── package.json

2. Uncomment .github/workflows/actionsflow.yml schedule event

- cron: "*/15 * * * *"

Note: To prevent abuse, by default, the schedule is commented, please modify the schedule time according to your own needs, the default is once every 15 minutes. Learn more about schedule event, please see here

3. Create workflow files

Define your workflow files inside the workflows directory.

A typical workflow file rss.yml looks like this:

name: Make a HTTP Request
runs-on: ubuntu-latest
- name: Make a HTTP Request
uses: actionsflow/axios@v1
method: POST
body: |
"link":"${{ }}",
"title": "${{ on.rss.outputs.title }}",
"content":"<<<${{ on.rss.outputs.contentSnippet }}>>>"

For more information about the Actionsflow workflow file, see the Actionsflow workflow reference.

You can find examples and inspiration on the Trigger List and on Awesome Actionsflow Workflows.

4. Commit and push your updates to Github

You can edit your workflow files online at Github, so you can submit your commit directly.

Or, you can also clone your repository to your local machine and manually submit your commit:

git commit -m "build: edit workflow file" -a
git push

After pushing your commit by using either option above, Actionsflow runs the workflows you defined. You can view logs at your repository's actions tab on Github.
