fastlane

The easiest way to automate building and releasing your iOS and Android apps 

Twitter: @FastlaneTools License Gem Build Status

✨ Check out docs.fastlane.tools on how to get started with fastlane ✨

fastlane is a tool for iOS and Android developers to automate tedious tasks like generating screenshots, dealing with provisioning profiles, and releasing your application.
Use a lane to define your process:
lane :beta do
  increment_build_number
  cocoapods
  match
  testflight
  sh "./customScript.sh"
  slack
end
Then to deploy a new 'beta' version of your app just run fastlane beta 🚀

fastlane
Connect iOS and Android build tools into one workflow (both fastlane tools and third party tools)
🚝 Define different deployment lanes for App Store deployment, beta builds, or testing
🚢 Deploy from any computer, including a CI server
🔧 Extend and customise functionality
💭 Never remember any difficult commands, just fastlane
🎩 Easy setup assistant to get started in a few minutes
✉️ Automatically pass on information from one build step to another (e.g. path to the ipa file)
📃 Store everything in Git. Never lookup build commands on your CI system again.
🚀 Saves you hours for every app update you release
✏️ Flexible configuration using a fully customisable Fastfile
🚠 Implement a fully working Continuous Delivery process
👻 Jenkins Integration: Show output directly in test results
📖 Automatically generate Markdown documentation of your lane configurations
🐣 Over 170 built-in integrations and 170 plugins available

Quick Start

Get started distributing your first app with fastlane within minutes:
Create your first Fastfile

System Requirements

Currently, fastlane is officially supported to run on macOS. Support for other operating systems is limited and untested at this point in time. fastlane uses system APIs that may not be implemented on other platforms, for example, we use the Ruby fork method for sub-process management, which isn't available on Windows.

Available Commands

Typically you'll use fastlane by triggering individual lanes:
fastlane [lane_name]

Other Commands

  • fastlane actions: List all available fastlane actions
  • fastlane action [action_name]: Shows a more detailed description of an action
  • fastlane lanes: Lists all available lanes with description
  • fastlane list: Lists all available lanes without description
  • fastlane new_action: Create a new action (integration) for fastlane
  • fastlane env: Print out the fastlane ruby environment when submitting an issue
If you'd like to take a look at a project already using fastlane check out fastlane-examples which includes fastlane setups by Wikipedia, Product Hunt, MindNode, and more.

  • snapshot: Automate taking localized screenshots of your iOS and tvOS apps on every device
  • screengrab: Automate taking localized screenshots of your Android app on every device
  • frameit: Quickly put your screenshots into the right device frames
  • pem: Automatically generate and renew your push notification profiles
  • sigh: Because you would rather spend your time building stuff than fighting provisioning
  • produce: Create new iOS apps on iTunes Connect and Dev Portal using the command line
  • cert: Automatically create and maintain iOS code signing certificates
  • spaceship: Ruby library to access the Apple Dev Center and iTunes Connect
  • pilot: The best way to manage your TestFlight testers and builds from your terminal
  • boarding: The easiest way to invite your TestFlight beta testers
  • gym: Building your iOS apps has never been easier
  • match: Easily sync your certificates and profiles across your team using Git
  • scan: The easiest way to run tests for your iOS and Mac apps
  • precheck: Check your app using a community driven set of App Store review rules to avoid being rejected

Metrics

fastlane tracks a few key metrics to understand how developers are using the tool and to help us know what areas need improvement. No personal/sensitive information is ever collected. Metrics that are collected include:
  • The number of successes, errors, and crashes for fastlane and each action run in a Fastfile
  • The running time of fastlane
  • The method by which fastlane was installed
  • Whether fastlane is being run on CI
  • The platform (e.g. iOS, Android) for which fastlane is run
  • A hash of the app identifier or package name, which helps us anonymously identify unique usage of fastlane
We have recently changed the destination service to which these metrics are reported, as well as the format of the data, but the data that is collected has not changed.
You can easily opt-out of metrics collection by adding opt_out_usage at the top of your Fastfile or by setting the environment variable FASTLANE_OPT_OUT_USAGE. Participating helps us provide the best possible support for fastlane, so we hope you'll consider it a plus! ➕

Crash Reporting

In order to continuously improve stability, fastlane will record crash reports with sanitized stacktraces. Sanitization removes personal information from the stacktrace and error message (including home directories, fastlane path, gem paths, environment variables, and parameters).
You can easily opt-out of crash reporting by adding opt_out_crash_reporting at the top of your Fastfile or by setting the environment variable FASTLANE_OPT_OUT_CRASH_REPORTING. Just like metrics mentioned above, participating helps us provide the best possible support for fastlane, so we hope you'll consider it a plus! ➕

Need Help?

Before submitting a new GitHub issue, please make sure to
If the above doesn't help, please submit an issue on GitHub and provide information about your setup, in particular the output of the fastlane env command.
Note: If you want to report a regression in fastlane (something that has worked before, but broke with a new release), please mark your issue title as such using [Regression] Your title here. This enables us to quickly detect and fix regressions.

Special Thanks

Thanks to all contributors for extending and improving fastlane.
