Update a Info.plist file with bundle identifier and display name

This action allows you to modify your Info.plist file before building. This may be useful if you want a separate build for alpha, beta or nightly builds, but don't want a separate target.

To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action update_info_plist


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 update_info_plist

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

fastlane run update_info_plist 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.
