fastlane actions

This page contains a list of all built-in fastlane actions and their available options.

To get the most up-to-date information from the command line on your current version you can also run

fastlane actions # list all available fastlane actions
fastlane action [action_name] # more information for a specific action

You can import another Fastfile by using the import action. This is useful if you have shared lanes across multiple apps and you want to store a Fastfile in a separate folder. The path must be relative to the Fastfile this is called from.

import './path/to/other/Fastfile'
