GitHub Actions to easily manage the version of your mobile applications

I created 4 GitHub Actions to help you manipulate the version of your mobile application. These are all available on the GitHub Marketplace

Why using these GitHub Actions?

When developing an application you always need to manage versions for your application. To deliver a new version of your application, one way to do it will be:

  • Upgrade the version of your application in code
  • Commit your code
  • Add a new version tag to your Git repository
  • Start your workflow to generate your new application package

This kind of process is too long and error prone, while the only thing you want is to have the same version between your Git tag and your application package delivered. So why not just read the Git tag?

Introducing new GitHub Actions

To solve this problem I developed a new set of free GitHub Actions to use in your workflow. These actions provide a way to extract the version from a Git repository tag and apply it to your project as you want.

Here there are:


I wrote a complete documentation on these new GitHub Actions, just follow my previous tutorial about it.
