||The whole commit JSON object response|
To get more information check the Lanes documentation.
To show the documentation in your terminal, run
fastlane action commit_github_file

fastlane run commit_github_file parameter1:"value1" parameter2:"value2"

param:"1,2,3"). Hashes are not currently supported.
It is recommended to add all fastlane actions you use to your
