Resign your iOS ipa (Frameworks and Plugins included)

Intoduction

This code allow you to resign your own ipa assuming that you have:
1) a developer certificate issued by apple and added to your keychain
2) a mobileprovision file

This code correctly signs ipas with Frameworks (.framework folders), Plugins (.appex folders), Applications (.app folders)
This code autoincludes entitlements with binaries extracting them from the provided mobileprovision file.

Usage

This code runs on mac osx
You should already have installed OSX Command Lines Tools
The code is a shell script

The app with plugins do not work. These when opened are opened and closed unexpectedly
