How to create an executable from a project #24

Hi, is it possible to create an executable file from a project?
How would i go about doing that?

Thank you,


A (very preliminary) version of creating an executable is in the latest version:

import launcher

Thanks for getting this issue rolling! It would be fantastic to be able to easily make executables from processing-py.

When I try out the launcher on Windows, I see this error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "", line 2, in
File "<string>", line 89, in create
OSError: unlink(): an unknown error occurred "launcherTest\dist.platforms\"


Thanks for the report. The "unknown error" is a bit strange. Could it be that the zip is opened by some other application (e.g., Winzip, …)?


The current PDE mode does this just fine for all three platforms.
