How To Use Qovery Github Actions With Monorepo

Hi guys,

We are currently using a lerna monorepo for our microservices and semantic-release to automatically version bump and create changelogs. We now want to auto deploy after the semantic-release process runs in each changed service during a PR merge to develop, staging, or master branches. What is the best way to go about doing this?

Hi @itajenglish ,

Do you already have a CI like GitHub Actions, GitLab CI, Circle CI… in place or not yet?

@rophilogene We are using Github Actions.

This is what our current release script looks like

name: Create new release

    branches: [ master, develop, staging ]

    name: Release
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - name: Checkout
        uses: actions/checkout@v3
          fetch-depth: 0
          persist-credentials: false
      - name: Setup Node.js
        uses: actions/setup-node@v2
          node-version: 'lts/*'
      - name: Authenticate with GitHub package registry
        run: |
          echo "//$NPM_TOKEN" > .npmrc
          echo '@listedb:registry=' >> .npmrc
          NPM_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.NPM_TOKEN }}
      - name: Install dependencies
        run: yarn install --frozen-lockfile --ignore-scripts
      - name: Release
        run: yarn run release-packages
          GH_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.GH_TOKEN }}
          NPM_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.NPM_TOKEN }}
          SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL: ${{ secrets.SLACK_WEBHOOK_URL }}

Hi @itajenglish ,

Did you take a look at this guide :point_down:?

It is quite complete but let me know if something is missing, I will complete here :blush:

@rophilogene I have. Didn’t see an example on how to integrate it in a monorepo. I might have to try to do some custom scripting.

@itajenglish , you can take a look at our web console v3 repository - we are using GitHub Actions + Qovery to deploy on staging and production when the pipeline is all green. We also use the Qovery Preview Environments when a new PR is created.

For each application in your monorepo, you can add a GitHub Action workflow and then control which app should be redeployed based on what happened in your CI pipeline.

I can make a tutorial for that

@rophilogene That would be really helpful. Thank you!
