macOS and Windows code signing is supported. Windows is dual code-signed (SHA1 & SHA256 hashing algorithms).
On a macOS development machine valid and appropriate identity from your keychain will be automatically used.
||The HTTPS link (or base64-encoded data, or
||The password to decrypt the certificate given in
||macOS-only Name of certificate (to retrieve from login.keychain). Useful on a development machine (not on CI) if you have several identities (otherwise don't specify it).|
If you are building Windows on macOS and need to set a different certificate and password (than the ones set in
CSC_* env vars) you can use
Travis, AppVeyor and other CI Servers
To sign app on build server you need to set
- Export certificate. Consider to not use special characters (for bash) in the password because “values are not escaped when your builds are executed”.
Encode file to base64 (macOS/linux:
base64 -i yourFile.p12 -o envValue.txt).
*.p12file (e.g. on Google Drive, use direct link generator to get correct download link).
CSC_KEY_PASSWORDenvironment variables. See Travis or AppVeyor documentation. Recommended to set it in the CI Project Settings, not in the
appveyor.yml. If you use link to file (not base64 encoded data), make sure to escape special characters (for bash) accordingly.
In case of AppVeyor, don't forget to click on lock icon to “Toggle variable encryption”.
Where to Buy Code Signing Certificate
How to Export Certificate on macOS
- Open Keychain.
Select all required certificates (hint: use cmd-click to select several):
Developer ID Application:to sign app for macOS.
3rd Party Mac Developer Application:and
3rd Party Mac Developer Installer:to sign app for MAS (Mac App Store).
Developer ID Application:and
Developer ID Installerto sign app and installer for distribution outside of the Mac App Store.
Please note – you can select as many certificates, as need. No restrictions on electron-builder side. All selected certificates will be imported into temporary keychain on CI server.
- Open context menu and
