For each commit to the open-source project, abaplint is triggered to perform static analysis and style checks.
Additionally, all unit tests are executed for each commit! The unit tests run on GitHub Actions, see the workflow configuration.
And as always, don’t write custom crypto, but sometimes there are no good alternatives.
Contributions/suggestions/bug reports welcome 🙂
