Launcher exe for distributing Python apps on Windows

Project description

An other tool to make standalone Windows applications with Python.

The launcher is a small C program that loads the Python DLL and calls Py_Main with itself as parameter, loading a zipped Python application appended to the exe. It isolates the execution from the environment (e.g. other Python installations on the same machine).

Dependencies are installed with pip. There is no automatic detection or scanning of source files. Instead, (with setuptools’ install_requires) or requirements.txt is used.

Quick Start

  • make a for your application, use scripts and/or entry_points for console_scripts
  • run python bdist_launcher

Done. See result in dist/launcher*.


See documentation/index.rst for more details.
