To show the documentation in your terminal, run
fastlane action increment_build_number

fastlane run increment_build_number
To pass parameters, make use of the
: symbol, for example
fastlane run increment_build_number 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
This action, just like the rest of fastlane, is fully open source, view the source code on GitHub
