Getting Started

Prerequisites

  • Python : 3.6-3.10

To have the interface displayed in the images, you will need chrome. If chrome is not installed or --no-chrome is supplied, the default browser will be used.

As of PyInstaller 4.0, Python 2.7 is no longer supported. Read "Python 2.7 Support" below for steps on how to use this tool with Python 2.7.

Installation and Usage

Installing Via PyPI

You can install this project using PyPI:

$ pip install auto-py-to-exe

Then to run it, execute the following in the terminal:

$ auto-py-to-exe

Installing Via GitHub

$ git clone https://github.com/brentvollebregt/auto-py-to-exe.git
$ cd auto-py-to-exe
$ python setup.py install

Then to run it, execute the following in the terminal:

$ auto-py-to-exe

Running Locally Via Github (no install)

You can run this project locally by following these steps:

  1. Clone/download the repo
  2. Open cmd/terminal and cd into the project
  3. Execute python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

Now to run the application, execute python -m auto_py_to_exe. A Chrome window in app mode will open with the project running inside.

Make sure you are in the directory below auto_py_to_exe (you will be after step 3) when calling python -m auto_py_to_exe or you will need to reference the folder auto_py_to_exe absolutely/relatively to where you currently are.

Using the Application

  1. Select your script location (paste in or use a file explorer)
    • Outline will become blue when file exists
  2. Select other options and add things like an icon or other files
  3. Click the big blue button at the bottom to convert
  4. Find your converted files in /output when completed

Easy.

Arguments

Usage: auto-py-to-exe [-nc] [-c [CONFIG]] [-o [PATH]] [filename]

Argument Type Description
filename positional/optional Pre-fill the "Script Location" field in the UI.
-nc, --no-chrome optional Open the UI using the default browser (which may be Chrome). Will not try to find Chrome.
-nu, --no-ui optional Don't try to open the UI in a browser and simply print out the address that the application can be accessed at.
-c [CONFIG], --config [CONFIG] optional Provide a configuration file (json) to pre-fill the UI. These can be generated in the settings tab.
-o [PATH], --output-dir [PATH] optional Set the default output directory. This can still be changed in the ui.
-bdo [FOLDER_PATH], --build-directory-override [FOLDER_PATH] optional Override the default build directory. Useful if you need to whitelist a folder to stop your antivirus from removing files.

If you are running this package locally, you will need to call python -m auto_py_to_exe instead of auto-py-to-exe

JSON Configuration

Instead of inserting the same data into the UI over and over again, you can export the current state by going to the "Configuration" section within the settings tab and exporting the config to a JSON file. This can then be imported into the UI again to re-populate all fields.

This JSON config export action does not save the output directory automatically as moving hosts could mean different directory structures. If you want to have the output directory in the JSON config, add the directory under nonPyinstallerOptions.outputDirectory in the JSON file (will need to create a new key).

Video

If you need something visual to help you get started, I made a video for the original release of this project; some things may be different but the same concepts still apply.

Issues Using the Tool

If you're having issues with the packaged executable or using this tool in general, I recommend you read my blog post on common issues when using auto-py-to-exe. This post covers things you should know about packaging Python scripts and fixes for things that commonly go wrong.

Python 2.7 Support

As of PyInstaller v4.0 released on Aug 9 2020, Python 2.7 is no longer supported; although you can still use this tool with Python 2.7 by installing an older version of PyInstaller. PyInstaller v3.6 was the last version that supported Python 2.7; to install this, first uninstall any existing versions of PyInstaller and then execute python -m pip install pyinstaller==3.6.

Testing

Tests are located in tests/ and are run using pytest:

$ pip install pytest
$ pip install -e .
$ pytest
