eGenix PyRun

Project Description

eGenix PyRun combines a Python interpreter with an almost complete Python standard library into a single easy-to-use executable.

The eGenix PyRun executable does not rely on an installed version of Python, making the distribution of a Python interpreter to run based scripts and applications to Unix based systems as simple as copying a single file.

eGenix PyRun’s executable only needs 11MB (Python2) and 13MB (Python3), but still supports most Python application and scripts - and it can be further compressed to 3-4MB using upx, if needed.

Compared to a regular Python installation of typically 100MB on disk, eGenix PyRun is ideal for applications and scripts that need to be distributed to several target machines, client installations or customers.

It makes “installing” Python on a Unix based system as simple as copying a single file.

We make eGenix PyRun binaries available for Linux, Mac OS X and FreeBSD, for 32-bit and 64-bit architectures. You can also compile eGenix PyRun yourself via the source archives.

The easiest way to install eGenix PyRun is by downloading the install-pyrun bash script and running it:

This will automatically detect the system version, download and install the right binary for your system.
