Getting Started

Prerequisites

  • Python : Python >= 2.7 ( including 3.7 🎉 )

To have the interface displayed in the images, you will need chrome. If chrome is not installed or --no-chrome is supplied, the default browser will be used.

Installation and Usage

Installing Via PyPI

You can install this project using PyPI:

$ pip install auto-py-to-exe

Then to run it, execute the following in the terminal:

$ auto-py-to-exe

Installing Via GitHub

$ git clone https://github.com/brentvollebregt/auto-py-to-exe.git
$ cd auto-py-to-exe
$ python setup.py install

Then to run it, execute the following in the terminal:

$ auto-py-to-exe

Running Locally Via Github (no install)

You can run this project locally by following these steps:

  1. Clone/download the repo
  2. Open cmd/terminal and cd into the project
  3. Execute python -m pip install -r requirements.txt

Now to run the application, execute python -m auto_py_to_exe. A Chrome window in app mode will open with the project running inside.

Make sure you are in the directory below auto_py_to_exe (you will be after step 3) when calling python -m auto_py_to_exe or you will need to reference the folder auto_py_to_exe absolutely/relatively to where you currently are.

Using the Application

  1. Select your script location (paste in or use a file explorer)
    • Outline will become blue when file exists
  2. Select other options and add things like an icon or other files
  3. Click the big blue button at the bottom to convert
  4. Find your converted files in /output when completed

Easy.

Arguments

Alternatively you can execute auto-py-to-exe [filename]. This will open up the window with the filename in the script location.

You can also pass --no-chrome if you want to use your default browser and not chromes app mode; for example auto-py-to-exe --no-chrome my_script.py.

If you are running this package locally, you will need to call python -m auto_py_to_exe instead of auto-py-to-exe

Video

If you need something visual to help you get started, I made a video for the original release of this project; some things may be different but the same concepts still apply.
