Not yet ready. But, here is information by Andreas Göb, who reported, that he has Enki running on Windows 7.
It might be useful for somebody.

Update: since version 13 Enki depends on Qutepart. This dependency is not covered in the instructions below

quote:

What I did was basically:

The most difficult part actually was finding out how to run enki. Other scripts like easy_install provide wrapper .exe files for windows, so everything just works. For enki, I had to create a shortcut to "python.exe %PYTHON_HOME%\Scripts\enki" in order to run it. In addition, I used one of the png files on GitHub to create a windows compatible icon, so that is shows the enki icon istead of the python icon.

Besides these small issues it worked really well, and I could instantly start using it.

Thanks for detailed answer. I myself could easily do all these steps, since I'm familiar enough with the python, but it's not the way that most people will go. It's nice that you're not a fanatic Linux and don't restrict your project in the platforms. Especially considering that the technically there's no reasons for the restrictions.

yes for a windows build I would love to have as much as possible emedded into the actual package so it doesnt rely on third party installations

Just a quick note: pyparsing moved to Python 3 (see their News entry from 2012-12-16).

So, running easy_install pyparsing with Python 2 will fail complaining about a syntax issue.

They instruct Python 2 users to explicitly install pyparsing 1.5.7 with the command easy_install pyparsing==1.5.7. Unfortunately though, that command failed me, too. In the end I got the binary distribution for Windows from SourceForge.net. After that everything worked like a charm for me.

I managed to create a static Windows exe file using pyinstaller. I haven't got around to really testing it, though. If there is a place where you want me to put it, let me know.

I'm planing to start officially releasing windows installer, when it is tested well and when I can do it for every new version (for release simultaneously with Linux versions)

No, still waits for a hero, who would make an installer.

Windows installer is ready. I have to fix a few cross-platform bugs before releasing v14.03 for Windows and Linux
