and if put the that NotarizerHelperStack into the plugins folder and if you add the below code  to your stack script 
then you can directly code sign and notarize the created macOS standalone right after it was built. ;)

on standaloneSaved pFolderSavedIn

if the cRevStandaloneSettings["MacOSX x86-64"] of this stack is true


answer "Do you want to notarize?" with "yes" or "No"

if it ="yes"


put pFolderSavedIN & "MacOSX/" & the cRevStandaloneSettings["name"] of this stack & ".app" into tAppBundle

notarizeApp tAppbundle


put "Don't notarize"

end if

end if

pass standalonesaved

end standaloneSaved

on notarizeApp tAppbundle
 put "Now notarizing..." &return &tAppBundle after message

 ##path to the notarizer Stack..
## either use an absolute path
--go stack "/Users/matthias/Dropbox/My Livecode/Plugins/mrSignNotarizeHelperV2.livecode"

##or if the helper stack is in the plugins folder
go stack revEnvironmentUserPluginsPath()&"/mrSignNotarizeHelperV2.livecode"

put tAppbundle into fld "appbundle" of cd 1 of stack "mrSignNotarizeHelperV2"

set the label of btn "action" of cd 1 of stack "mrSignNotarizeHelperV2" to "Codesign App, create & codesign DMG, then notarize DMG and staple DMG and App"

set the hilite of btn "debugmode" of cd 1 of stack "mrSignNotarizeHelperV2" to false

send "mouseup" to btn "start" of cd 1 of stack "mrSignNotarizeHelperV2" in 5 seconds

end notarizeApp

You can find it at this LC lesson, which includes all the manual steps if you want to do it that way, but at the bottom describes his automated tool as well. You can download the stack from the link at the top of the lesson.
