create desktop and Start Menu shortcuts for python scripts
pyshortcuts-max helps developers and Python users to create shortcuts on a Users Desktop or Start Menu that will run python scripts and applications.
pyshortcuts-max is cross-platform, supporting Windows, MacOS, and Linux each in the way most natural for the OS. On Windows, a Shortcut or Link is created. On Linux a “.desktop” file is created. On MacOS, a minimal Application is created. In all cases, the shortcuts are put either directly on the Desktop or Start Menu , or in a folder on the Desktop or Start Menu of the current user. That means that there is not need for elevated permission or writing to system-level files (registry, /Applications, /usr/bin). The user has complete control to rename, move, or delete the shortcut after it is created. Shortcuts can have a custom icon (.ico files on Windows or Linux, or .icns files on MacOS) specified, defaulting to a Python icon included with the pyshortcuts-max module.
pyshortcuts-max is pure python, has a small footprint and is very easy to install and use either from a python script. That is to say, it can easily be part of a installation (or post-installation process) process for larger packages.
