[–input-path input-path …]
The input to provide to the shortcut. Can be dropped, or set to

Where to write the shortcut output, if applicable. Can be
omitted, or set to “-” for stdout.

[–output-type output-type]
What type to output data in, in Uniform Type Identifier format.
If not provided shortcuts will attempt to infer the output type
from the output filename, or use the default type of the output

shortcuts list
[–folder-name folder-name-or-identifier]
The folder name or identifier to list shortcuts in, or “none” to
list shortcuts not in a folder.

List folders instead of shortcuts.

Show identifiers with each result.

shortcuts sign
[–mode mode]
The signing mode. Either “people-who-know-me” or “anyone”.

Specifying “people-who-know-me” will sign locally, but only your
devices, or people who have your contact info in their contacts,
will be able to import the shortcut.

Specifying “anyone” will notarize via iCloud, and allow anyone
to import the shortcut.

–input input
The shortcut file to sign.
