Moving PHP and Laravel tests from Travis CI to GitHub Actions

Original – by Freek Van der Herten – 3 minute read

Earlier this year, Travis CI announced a new pricing model that effectively ends the generous open-source offering they had for many years. It seems that, even though there were some plans to provide free resources for OSS projects in the future, all activity for OSS projects has stopped.

At our company, we create a lot of open-source projects and packages. Beginning 2020, we already moved most of our stuff to GitHub actions.

Sure, you can read the GitHub actions docs to start learning the possibilities, but in my experience, it might be better to see some examples of practical uses cases. Here are some interesting links that might help you get started with GitHub actions.




I'm not getting paid to mention these; I trust these folks to deliver quality stuff.

In closing

At Spatie, we're pretty happy with GitHub Actions. If you have a practical question on getting started, feel free to hit me up on Twitter.

Like Nuno, I'm grateful for all the years that Travis CI offered a free tier for opensource. Also keep in mind what Stefan said: GitHub actions aren't the only alternative, do take a look at CircleCI and Gitlab CI as well.

Stay up to date with all things Laravel, PHP, and JavaScript.

You can follow me on these platforms:

On all these platforms, regularly share programming tips, and what I myself have learned in ongoing projects.

Every month I send out a newsletter containing lots of interesting stuff for the modern PHP developer.

Expect quick tips & tricks, interesting tutorials, opinions and packages. Because I work with Laravel every day there is an emphasis on that framework.

Rest assured that I will only use your email address to send you the newsletter and will not use it for any other purposes.
