I’m looking to understand whether it’s possible to accomplish Netlify previews with a manual build process.
I currently use docfx which isn’t supported by Netlify directly for builds (yet!)
So, I currently use a GitHub action for GitHub environments combined with a GitHub action for the Netlify CLI. I build the output, create a GitHub environment, push to Netlify, and associate that environment with a URL based on the response. But I don’t get any Netlify preview links or the ability to add comments on a page etc.
Is there any way to trigger the corresponding GitHub pull request comment and preview page when using a manual deploy? I’m hoping to still keep most of that awesome workflow if possible.
(If this is better for the “Features” category, feel free to move there.)
