Get the most recent git tag

If you are using this action on a shallow clone, the default with some CI systems like Bamboo, you need to ensure that you have also pulled all the git tags appropriately. Assuming your git repo has the correct remote set you can issue sh('git fetch --tags').
Pattern parameter allows you to filter to a subset of tags.

To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action last_git_tag


It is recommended to add the above action into your Fastfile, however sometimes you might want to run one-offs. To do so, you can run the following command from your terminal

fastlane run last_git_tag

To pass parameters, make use of the : symbol, for example

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

It's important to note that the CLI supports primitive types like integers, floats, booleans, and strings. Arrays can be passed as a comma delimited string (e.g. param:"1,2,3"). Hashes are not currently supported.

It is recommended to add all fastlane actions you use to your Fastfile.
