Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Replace Travis CI with Github Actions
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2020 16:09:20 GMT
Dear Chris,

There are some web pages that compare travis and github actions like [1].

I think github actions will improve the productivity because it is easier,
faster and richer with github integration features that are not possible
with travis. There is also a community of users who made many actions
available (see [2]), so this can save time because we can use them or adapt
them to the project needs.

There is little configuration needed for github actions because it is part
of github.

The disadvantages of github actions are:

1. The team may require some time to learn it. But there are many tutorials
and examples. I think the time used in learning it will be a good
investment because it will save development and testing time later.

2. If the project is moved from github, the github actions will not work
until github offers a separate CI product. But I do not think SINGA will be
moved from github unless the Apache foundation decides to move.

The best way to compare travis and github actions is to start moving some
of the current travis jobs to github actions and see the difference in
practice.

Best regards,
Moaz
