TOKYO (MacHouse) – As Apple, Inc. damands that all software submissions to Mac App Store be sandboxed, things can go difficult. It’s not just the application itself that you have to codesign. You have to manually codesign child process files like command-line tools, AppleScript files, AppleScript apps. We can name a few applications that contain more than three dozen command-line tools in their packages. Signing them all manually can take at least minutes, if not hours.
