GooeyPi

Simple wxPython-based crossplatform Pyinstaller GUI front-end. Supports UPX, as well as some of the most common Pyinstaller options.

Tested on both Linux and Windows platforms, but is designed to work with Max OS X, though would appreciate input from any Mac users on how (or if) it works.
