A tool used to run or import obfuscated python scritps

Project description

Pyarmor is a command line tool used to import or run obfuscated python scripts. Only by a few extra files, pyarmor can run and imported obfuscated files in the normal python environments.

Pyarmor just likes an enhancement by which python could run or import obfuscated scripts.

Main Features

  • Run obfuscated script or import obfuscated module
  • Expire obfuscated files
  • Bind obfuscated files to harddisk, mac address, ip address etc.

Support Platforms

  • Python 2.5, 2.6, 2.7 and Python3
  • Prebuilt Platform: win32, win_amd64, linux_i386, linux_x86_64, darwin_x86_64
  • Embeded Platform: Raspberry Pi, Banana Pi, TS-4600 / TS-7600


The simple way is pip:

pip install pyarmor

Or get source package from pypi/pyarmor

Pyarmor is a command line tool, main script is After you get source package, unpack it to any path, then run as common python script:


If Pyarmor is installed by pip, there is a command will be avaiable in Python script path:


Basic Usage

The following examples show how to obfuscate a python package pybench, which locates in the examples/pybench in the source of pyarmor.

Obfuscate package pybench:

python obfuscate --src examples/pybench --entry \
                            "*.py" "package/*.py"

# Note that quotation mark is required for file patterns, otherwise
# it will be expanded base on current path by shell.
# This command will create a extra file in the
# --src path, and save all the obfuscated scripts to default output
# path "dist" in the current path
cd dist

# Check obfuscated script

# Run obfuscated script

Use project to manage obfuscated scripts:

mkdir projects
python init --src examples/pybench --entry \

# This command will create 2 files: .pyarmor_config,
# in the project path "projects/pybench"
cd projects/pybench

# And there is a shell script "pyarmor" is created at the same time.
# (In windows, the name is "pyarmor.bat")
# Now run command "build" to obfuscated all the scripts
./pyarmor build

# Check obfuscated script
cd dist

# Run obfuscated script

Start a webui to manage project:

# For windows

# For linux

# If Pyarmor is installed by pip
