Run tests using xctool

You can run any xctool action. This will require having xctool installed through Homebrew.
It is recommended to store the build configuration in the .xctool-args file.

2 Examples

# If you prefer to have the build configuration stored in the `Fastfile`:
xctool(:test, [
  "--workspace", "'AwesomeApp.xcworkspace'",
  "--scheme", "'Schema Name'",
  "--configuration", "Debug",
  "--sdk", "iphonesimulator",
  "--arch", "i386"
].join(" "))


To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action xctool


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 xctool

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

fastlane run xctool 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.
