Dads python3-to-exe guide
Dad is a good guy. But he ain’t like
virtualenv -p $(pyenv which python3) .venv, then pip install -r requirements.txt? NP, SON!
He’s more like
When I double click the python file, cmd flashes and I bluescreen.
So he needs an exe file. Here’s a general snippet for converting python3 to exe
virtualenv -p $(pyenv which python3) .venv pip install cx_Freeze
Then, the two files in this gist, and run (from the same directory):
python setup.py build
Voila! Your executables should be in the ./build folder
Ouch: The executables can only be run on the same OS as they’re built :(
Ouch2: It’s not 1 executable. It’s more like 1000 files + 1 executables that all should be run together.
