The executable can then be packed and shipped in many\ndifferent ways (through installer wizards, deb/rpm packages, etc.).\n\nPyInstaller is a good multi-platform alternative to tools like py2exe and\npy2app, but it found troubles to gain acceptance in a market that seems\nstrongly tied to older tools. Instead, PyInstaller puts forward important new\nfeatures: for instance, it works on the most important desktop platforms\n(Windows, Linux/UNIX, Mac), and it has got an automatic and fully transparent\nsupport for all the workarounds needed to make applications using complex\nlibraries like Matplotlib or PyQt work within a static executable.\n\nIn detail, the following points will be discussed:\n\n * Distribution of a priopriertary software: initial requests\n * PyInstaller: how it works (basic tutorial)\n * The secrets of PyInstaller: technical details\n * Import hooks: effectively handling third party extensions\n * Flexibility with PyInstaller: what goes in and what stays out\n * Linux: static binaries for a single distribution or cross-distributions\n * Mac: creation of bundles for graphic applications\n\n", "quality_notes": "", "copyright_text": "Standard YouTube License", "embed": "<object width=\"640\" height=\"390\"><param name=\"movie\" value=\";hl=en_US\"></param><param name=\"allowFullScreen\" value=\"true\"></param><param name=\"allowscriptaccess\" value=\"always\"></param><embed src=\";hl=en_US\" type=\"application/x-shockwave-flash\" width=\"640\" height=\"390\" allowscriptaccess=\"always\" allowfullscreen=\"true\"></embed></object>", "thumbnail_url": "", "duration": null, "video_ogv_length": null, "video_ogv_url": null, "video_ogv_download_only": false, "video_mp4_length": null, "video_mp4_url": null, "video_mp4_download_only": false, "video_webm_length": null, "video_webm_url": null, "video_webm_download_only": false, "video_flv_length": null, "video_flv_url": null, "video_flv_download_only": false, "source_url": "", "whiteboard": "", "recorded": "2011-07-13", "added": "2012-08-30T21:02:45", "updated": "2014-04-08T20:28:27.810" }
