Set CI_BRANCH_BASE for GitHub Actions

See original GitHub issue

Do you want to request a feature or report a bug?


What is the current behavior?

There’s no way to diff against a branch other than master on GitHub Actions CI

If the current behavior is a bug, please provide the steps to reproduce.

What is the expected behavior?

If this is a feature request, what is motivation or use case for changing the behavior?

Please mention other relevant information such as the browser version, Node.js version, bundlewatch version, and Operating System.

Recently I switched bootstrap from bundlesize to bundlewatch and it works quite well!

I wanted to figure out how to diff against a branch other than master, in our case v4-dev. I couldn’t find how to make this work with GitHub Actions, since the env variables don’t seem to provide a similar variable to CI_BRANCH_BASE

Does anybody have any ideas?

Setting the var works. I didn’t change trackBranches.

Anyway, I still think it’d be a nice improvement if bundlewatch detected this automatically like it happens with Travis.

@iamogbz that was in a PR against the v4-dev branch, but I dropped the patch after I noticed it didn’t work.

Caused by dependency update in bundlewatch service resolved now
