Utility to create a stand-alone distribution of a Python program, either a console or GUI program. py2win uses Python embedded distribution and pip to create the stand-alone distribution.

Installation

You first need to install Microsoft Visual Studio, compatible with your current Python installation. Then simply run:

pip install py2win

How to use

As a command in setup.py

  1. Define at least one entry point in your setup.py.
setup(
     ...
     entry_points={
         'gui_scripts': ['sample-gui=sample.gui:main'],
         'console_scripts': ['sample-console=sample.console:main'],
     },
     ...
     )
  1. Run the bdist_windows command
python setup.py --command-packages py2win bdist_windows

As a separate script to create an embedded distribution

from py2win.embed import EmbedPython

embed = EmbedPython('sample', '1.2.0')
embed.add_wheel(filepath_to_wheel_of_your_project)
embed.add_script('project.gui', 'main', 'project-gui', console=False)
embed.run(destination_directory)
