Ryan Chandler wrote the quick post Running GitHub Actions for Certain Commit Messages.

I built a few projects with GitHub actions. The technology is great, but unfortunately, the documentation gave me a hard time.

This post is a quick bookmark for my future self. 😊

jobs:
  format:
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
    if: "! contains(github.event.head_commit.message, 'wip')"

This (☝️) is how you can limit the execution of GitHub actions depending on a commit message. :)
