  • 📦 Zip the app - using ditto
  • ⬆️ Upload it to apple service - using xcrun altool
  • Wait for final notarization result - by polling on xcrun altool
  • 🧷 Staple your app. - using xcrun stapler

Fork and make PR


  • allow to skip some step (like staple, or wait)
  • with an option like verbose, show log for each step
  • other output format ie. reporter
  • maybe save app name and path with notarization uuid to have further information when getting history or info
