How to setup continous deployment with github actions.

I’ve created a droplet that has a laravel application running.
I want to set up continious intergration for this, so far i’ve ssh into the droplet and i’ve been able to run composer and clone down the latest part from the repo.

The issue occurs when i get to running npm, I’ve followed the tutorial of installing this via nvm. But when i need to access run npm via github actions i get the issue “bash: line 4: npm: command not found”. If i SSH into the service, this works fine. Any guesses on what i’ve done wrong to resolve this?

name: Build and deploy

    branches: [master]
    runs-on: ubuntu-latest
      - name: Deploy Laravel APP
        uses: appleboy/ssh-action@v0.1.4
          host: ${{secrets.SSH_HOST}}
          key: ${{secrets.SSH_KEY}}
          username: ${{ secrets.SSH_USER }}

          script: |
            cd /var/www/admin
            git pull origin master
            composer install
            npm install
            npm run prod
