Note to self: codesigning for OS X and iOS on the command line

As a reminder for myself, here is how you can codesign an OS X application for the AppStore on the command line:

codesign -f -s "3rd Party Mac Developer Application: Your Company" -v YourApp.app
productbuild --component YourApp.app /Applications --sign "3rd Party Mac Developer Installer: Your Company" YourApp.pkg

There is a lot more to do, of course, like having the correct bundle ID set, but this speeds up codesigning, if you do not use XCode to build your application.

For iOS it is pretty similar, except you don’t need the productbuild:

codesign -f -s "iPhone Distribution: Your Company" -v YourApp.app
