Prancer Github App

The Prancer Github application provides an easy way to verify Infrastructure as Code (IaC) templates. To configure the app in a Github repository, the user needs to follow a few steps. First, they need to install the Prancer Github application in the organization repository by going to the Prancer Github application link and clicking on the "Install" button. Then, they can create a collection from the Configuration Wizard page by entering the collection name, selecting the 'IAC' option, and authenticating to the Github server. After creating the collection, the user can enable the Github autofix feature for that collection by adding the 'autofix_pr' configuration with a value of 'true'. Once enabled, the Github app will validate new and changed files in pull requests, autofix the issues, and create new pull requests with the fixed code. The user can test the Github app integration by creating a pull request with the specified branch as the destination branch and checking for the Github app comment about the autofixes.
