GitHub Actions for R

Open source R packages on GitHub often take advantage of continuous integration services to automatically check their packages for errors. This is very useful to catch things quickly, as well and increasing confidence for proposed changes, as the Pull Requests can be checked before they are merged. Travis-CI and Appveyor are the most popular current methods. However a new service, GitHub Actions, shows promise for being more featureful and simpler to configure and debug. This talk demonstrates using this service for R packages and projects and how to configure them for your own use in packages and reports.
