Py2exe for packaging installers?

Hi all,

I am trying to find out what tools (platform-independent if possible) that I
can use to package a goup (few) of installers to become an exe application.
I have heard of Py2exe but have not use it before. Could it be used to wrap
different installers (for example Python and Leo, python-based application)
together? Does the installers have to be python-based to be able to use
Py2exe? Are there any other alternatives?

Many thanks in advance for your advice

regards

Hi Casey Wong,

If you download py2exe, you'll find a number of examples of how to use
py2exe to create installers using InnoSetup.
On the wiki, you'll also find examples of how to do this -- even with
pygtk applications.

However, it's not platform independant -- it'll be for windows only.

Cheers,

Yeah, u'll have to use py2exe similars for mac (should be py2app, if i
remember right....). py2exe is a Python distutils extension which
converts python scripts into executable windows programs

cheers
