TIL: Exclude vendor directory from rubocop to avoid GitHub Actions problem17 Jan 2023 - Tobias Erdle
I spent now a few hours debugging my GitHub Actions Workflow which actually had a lot of trouble running rubocop (and PostgreSQL for tests, but that's
another topic) because it tried to use the
rubocop-discourse plugin which I don't need since I'm not using discourse. Anyway, I tried nearly everything
and after excluding the
vendor directory from rubocop, everything worked. I'm really not sure why this happens, but I want to share this in case someone
else runs into the same trouble.
Finally the working
.rubocop.yml contains the following exclusions for all cops:
AllCops: NewCops: enable Exclude: - "db/**/*" - "config/**/*" - "script/**/*" - "bin/**/*" - "vendor/**/*"
Also, this is the section I use inside my GitHub Actions manifest:
lint: runs-on: ubuntu-latest steps: - name: Checkout code uses: actions/checkout@v3 - name: Install Ruby and gems uses: ruby/setup-ruby@v1 with: bundler-cache: true - name: Security audit dependencies run: bundle exec bundler-audit --update - name: Security audit application code run: bundle exec brakeman -q -w2 - name: Lint Ruby files run: bundle exec rubocop --parallel
