I have previously blogged about publishing VSCode extensions to VSMarketplace (using GitHub actions). However, that workflow relied heavily on the branching strategy and was on assumption that anything that is merged to
master is ready for publishing to VSMarketplace. It worked great, but occasionally I felt the need to test the extension from
master and I wanted a way to approve before I decide to publish to marketplace. In this post we will see how I used ChatOps with the help of GitHub actions and Issues to achieve the same.

Recently I have been spending more time with GitHub Actions. If you don’t know already, GitHub actions allow you to orchestrate workflow (CI/CD) based on events like
pull-request etc. Not only you can use actions available in the GitHub Marketplace, you also build your own. I wanted to experiment, how easy it is to develop one. So I just did that and built an custom action.
