Freeze (package) Python programs into stand-alone executables
PyInstaller bundles a Python application and all its dependencies into a single package. The user can run the packaged app without installing a Python interpreter or any modules.
Help keeping PyInstaller alive: Maintaining PyInstaller is a huge amount of work. PyInstaller development can only continue if users and companies provide sustainable funding. See http://www.pyinstaller.org/funding.html for how to support PyInstaller.

PyInstaller reads a Python script written by you. It analyzes your code to discover every other module and library your script needs in order to execute. Then it collects copies of all those files -- including the active Python interpreter! -- and puts them with your script in a single folder, or optionally in a single executable file.
PyInstaller is tested against Windows, Mac OS X, and GNU/Linux. However, it is not a cross-compiler: to make a Windows app you run PyInstaller in Windows; to make a GNU/Linux app you run it in GNU/Linux, etc. PyInstaller has been used successfully with AIX, Solaris, FreeBSD and OpenBSD, but is not tested against them as part of the continuous integration tests.
PyInstaller is available on PyPI. You can install it through
pip install pyinstaller
pip install pyinstaller[encryption]instead.
permission errors_ that can't easily be fixed.
Mac OS X (64bit):
Basic usage is very simple, just run it against your main script::

The following platforms have been contributed and any feedback or enhancements on these are welcome.
PowerPC GNU/Linux (Debian)
Before using any contributed platform, you need to build the PyInstaller bootloader, as we do not ship binary packages. Download PyInstaller source, and build the bootloader::
cd bootloader python ./waf all
Then install PyInstaller::
python setup.py install
or simply use it directly from the source (pyinstaller.py).
