Compiling multiple python scripts into an exe file

+2 votes

Basically, is it possible to compile multiple unrelated python scripts into a single exe file, so when execute it several python programs are run at once.

In order to use this on another machine without python installed and only by using one single file.

This is my first time using pyinstaller. My goal is to build an .app in Mac. The app is basically a GUI written in PySide, and I have about 7 different Python scripts + 1 .png file. The main file calls 4 of the files, and the 4 files will call the rest of the 2 files repeatedly. The .png file is nothing but the window logo. Could someone help me with some diagnosis? I do not know what went wrong. I searched a lot of documentations online, i.e., change spec, add import, ... etc. but my app still doesn't run.FYI, Pyinstaller could generate an app for me, but there are two issues:
1. Icon is not changed for the app.
2. App crashes when opened.

My Python version is 2.7.5 and I am using PyInstaller-2.0. Here is my code for packaging:

python --onefile --windowed --name=MyApplication -i ~/Documents/AASource/icon.ico ~/Documents/AASource/Scripts/main_file.pyHere is the spec file:

$ -*- mode: python -*- a = Analysis(['/Users/boxuancui/Documents/AASource/Scripts/'], pathex=['/Users/boxuancui/Documents/pyinstaller-2.0'], hiddenimports=[], hookspath=None) pyz = PYZ(a.pure) exe = EXE(pyz, a.scripts, a.binaries, a.zipfiles, a.datas, name=os.path.join('dist', 'MyApplication'), debug=False, strip=None, upx=True, console=False , icon='/Users/boxuancui/Documents/AASource/icon.ico') app = BUNDLE(exe, name=os.path.join('dist', ''))Here is part of the crash message:

Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x00000000000054d8

Thanks in advance! Any help will be appreciated!

where data is a list of strings which I want to dump into the index.txt file

Python scripts can run without a main(). What is the advantage to using a main()? Is it necessary to use a main() when the script uses command line arguments? (See script below)


import sys

def main():
 # print command line arguments
 for arg in sys.argv[1:]:
 print arg

if __name__ == "__main__":
