I guess predictably, I get the following when I compile my .net project in linux:
/root/.dotnet/sdk/5.0.404/Sdks/Microsoft.NET.Sdk/targets/Microsoft.NET.Sdk.FrameworkReferenceResolution.targets(89,5): error NETSDK1100: Windows is required to build Windows desktop applications.

Hi there,
would it be possible to have more contributors with write access to act? Currently the project feels a bit limited by the time available to review and merge PRs.

This still seems to be an issue. We have a couple of PRs open and not much is happening at the moment. It would be great to get an answer from @cplee about this.

Hello, I'm trying to debug a pipeline and I'm stuck on a step that creates tags: docker/metadata-action@v3. I'm getting the error ::error::Parameter token or opts.auth is required. I don't understand what this error means? Is docker/metadata-action@v3 supported? The full step looks as follows:
      - name: Docker meta
        id: meta
        uses: docker/metadata-action@v3
        with:
          images: harbor.rocsys.dev/rocsys/socketnet

I notice when I run an action with act that includes a call to docker run I get docker: Got permission denied while trying to connect to the Docker daemon socket but on github I don't. I'm currently using the ubuntu-latest=ghcr.io/catthehacker/ubuntu:full-latest runner.
Would using a different runner fix the issue, perhaps because of the user act's runner uses?

I'm confused as to why I'm seeing | mkdir: cannot create directory '/var/run/act/actions': Permission denied. I'm using --bind to bind the working directory so shouldn't actions be able to write?

Hey guys, I'm having some trouble with ::set-output, maybe one of you guys can spot what I'm doing wrong?
I'm trying to turn the contents of a file into an output from an action, but nothing I do seems to work. (According to the internet this should be fairly simple)

Here's my (debug) yml (with debug probes):

    - shell: bash
      name: Retrieve Binary Path
      id: retrievebinarypath
      run: |
        PATH=$(cat $HOME/binaries.txt)
        echo "Path is $PATH"
        echo "BINPATH=$PATH" >> $GITHUB_ENV
        echo strawberry
        echo ::set-output name=binarypath::$PATH
        echo ::set-output name=altbinarypath::${{ env.BINPATH }}

    - shell: bash
      name:  Display binary path to user
      run: |
        echo "From Steps: ${{ steps.retrievebinarypath.outputs.binarypath }}"
        echo "From Steps (alt): ${{ steps.retrievebinarypath.outputs.altbinarypath }}"
        echo "From ENV: ${{ env.BINPATH }}"
        echo "From Outputs: ${{ outputs.binarypath.value }}"

and here's the output I'm getting from act:

| Path is /tmp/arduino_build_688801/Device.ino.elf
| strawberry

Apparently this example does not work for me:
    - name: Set the value
      id: step_one
      shell: bash
      run: echo ::set-output name=FOO::BAR
    - name: Use it
      shell: bash
      run: echo ${{ steps.step_one.outputs.FOO }}

I’m excited to announce that we’ve expanded the list of maintainers for act to include @ChristopherHX, @ZauberNerd and @KnisterPeter . We’ve also changed the Mergify rules to auto-merge any PR once 3 of the 5 maintainers have approved the PR.

Hopefully these changes will support the community better! Thanks to all the maintainers for all they’ve done for act :tada:

Hi! I'm wondering how can I pass the context payload to the workflow I'm trying to run. this is because the github action I'm using filters the execution of it based on github.context.payload.sender data. So I would like to be able to pass the expected sender in this case. Maybe I'm missing something very basic :/

Hello - great tool! Getting back into using it after some time away. I have a failing workflow, and know the fact that the container is still running after the last step failed. So I exec into the running container, but find that the state of the container is not what I was expecting.

ex: action in the workflow that installs dotnet (and succeeds). But when I exec into it, it's not installed. "dotnet: command not found"

Have a feeling that the workflows are running under a certain user / profile, that is different than the one I get when I exec into the failed container. Node is not installed either (used by ACT, right?), which makes me think it's something even more fundamental. Likely a dumb docker / linux profile thing that I'm not understanding.

Have been tryin to search these archives and not coming up with anything.
Thanks in advance.

Hi all, it's Jorge!

I just recently started using this amazing tool act. I'm building a Python package template which generates its own GitHub actions according to user input requirements (minimum Python version, for example). TCould not find a part of the path '/run/act/actions/actions-setup-python@v2/.github/python.json'.herefore, I though that it would be super cool to have a workflow file and colling act in GH actions just to test the generated actions from the template. However, it got the following error:

Could not find a part of the path '/run/act/actions/actions-setup-python@v2/.github/python.json'.

Nevertheless, act gets executed in GitHub actions but because of previous error, the CI detects it as a failure.

I am aware about the fact that act was not designed with this purpose in mind (to be called as a github actions run command). But would be super cool to understand previous error or even figuring out how to solve it.

Thanks in advance for any kind of support/guidance you provide me on this 🚀

Hi, I tried to find some explanation on how checkout works on act after coming across with the following "Skipping local actions/checkout because workdir was already copied". I went into the container and it seems like some of my stuff, that wasn't checked in the repo was there. AFAI looked into it, act is copying the contents of the source workspace to destination workspace. Why is that ? Why not just checkout the git repo ? I am probably missing some things. What are the steps for this process, I would appreciate if someone enlightens me.
