Manage your DNS from GitHub with DNSControl

In this post Sven Luijten uses DNSControl from within GitHub Actions to manage DNS:

What if you could edit a JavaScript file with your desired DNS configuration, submit a pull request on GitHub, see a preview of the changes you are about to make, and when you merge it, have those changes be applied completely automatically?

The main action behind it is koenrh/dnscontrol-action:

# .github/workflows/push.yml
name: Push DNS changes

on:
  push:
    branches:
      - main

jobs:
  push:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    steps:
      - uses: actions/[email protected]

      - name: Push DNS changes
        uses: koenrh/[email protected]
        env:
          CLOUDFLARE_API_TOKEN: ${{ secrets.CLOUDFLARE_API_TOKEN }}
        with:
          args: push

The action also supports more arguments — as covered in Sven’s post — for checking and previewing.
