To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action download_from_play_store


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 download_from_play_store

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

fastlane run download_from_play_store 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.

This action, just like the rest of fastlane, is fully open source, view the source code on GitHub
