Seeking OSX Code signing consultant...

You can easily run an unsigned app on High Sierra or Mojave. But you can not start the application by double clicking it the first time you run it. You need to open it from a contextual menu (right click or ctrl click) and then choose «Open» in the resulting dialog window. Afterwards you can use the unsigned application just as a signed application.

I do this all the time with apps I give to my students


Best regards
Tore Nilsen

The app has to be either from the "App Store" or from "Identified developers” (code signed). You can run an app you build on your own computer but to distribute and download they need to be code signed.

We want to PAY someone to help us set up code signing under El Capitan (10.11.x) and XCode 8.2.1. I can't imagine that for someone who knows what they are doing it would take more than a couple hours on an online meeting (screen sharing ) with us.
