This is one of the biggest updates of fastlane yet: You can now execute lanes from within lanes and even pass parameters.

This allows you to move common build steps into a shared lane. Additionally it's now also possible to pass parameters from the command line to your lane.

Passing Parameters

To pass parameters from the command line to your lane, use the following syntax:

fastlane [lane] key:value key2:value2

fastlane deploy submit:false build_number:24

To access those values, change your lane decleration to also include |options|

lane :deploy do |options|
  ...
  if options[:submit]
    # Only when submit is true
  end
  ...
  increment_build_number(build_number: options[:build_nymber])
  ...
end

Switching lanes

To switch lanes while executing a lane, use the following code:

lane :deploy do |options|
  ...
  build(release: true) # that's the important bit
  hockey
  ...
end

lane :staging do |options|
  ...
  build # it also works when you don't pass parameters
  hockey
  ...
end

lane :build do |options|
  scheme = (options[:release] ? "Release" : "Staging")
  ipa(scheme: scheme)
end

fastlane takes care of all the magic for you. You can call lanes of the same platform or a general lane outside of the platform definition.

Passing parameters is optional.

Returning values

Additionally, you can retrieve the return value. In Ruby, the last line of the lane definition is the return value. Here is an example:

lane :deploy do |options|
  value = calculate(value: 3)
  puts value # => 5
end

lane :calculate do |options|
  ...
  2 + options[:value] # the last line will always be the return value
end

More changes
