Loft provides the following GitHub Actions for use in workflows:

Virtual Clusters Too!

Check out the Virtual Cluster Integration section for examples of using the Virtual Cluster create/delete GitHub Actions plugins.

Spaces for Pull Requests

These examples show how to create and delete Spaces for pull requests.

This example shows how to create and delete a space to test an application named my-app for pull requests.

# .github/workflows/prs.yaml
name: Pull Request Checks
- 'main'
runs-on: ubuntu-latest
- name: Install Loft CLI
uses: loft-sh/setup-loft@main
url: ${{ secrets.LOFT_URL }}
access-key: ${{ secrets.LOFT_ACCESS_KEY }}
- name: Create Space for PR
uses: loft-sh/create-space@main
name: pr-${{ github.event.pull_request.number }}-${{ github.sha }}-${{ github.run_id }}
- name: Deploy Application
run: kubectl apply -Rf ./kubernetes
- name: Wait for Deployment
run: kubectl rollout status -n pr-${{ github.event.pull_request.number }}-${{ github.sha }}-${{ github.run_id }} deployments/my-app
- name: Run Tests
run: make e2e
- name: Delete PR Space
uses: loft-sh/delete-space@main
name: pr-${{ github.event.pull_request.number }}-${{ github.sha }}-${{ github.run_id }}


  1. The Setup Loft action is used to install the Loft CLI and login using the provided url and access-key.
  2. The Create Space action is used to create a unique space using information about the pull request. This will automatically configure the kube context for the following steps.
  3. The next step deploys the application using the runner provided kubectl and manifests located under ./kubernetes.
  4. Before running tests, we use kubectl to wait for the my-app deployment to become ready.
  5. Now we run the end-to-end tests. In this example we're using make to run tests, but the command should be customized for your testing framework.
  6. Finally, the Delete Space GitHub Action is used to delete the pull request's space.
