Distribute python gui app

Wed Jul 11, 2018 10:23 pm

I've developed an app using tkinter on my pi and want to create into an app that can be distributed and run on other platforms such as Mac and Windows. How do I do this?

Just send them your Python source code and instructions for installing the version of Python it uses plus TKInter.

For Windows you might want to create a .pyw wrapper which launches your application. You will also have to ensure you have made your app cross-platform compatible. Other than that, if it runs on the Pi it should run on Windows or Mac and vice-versa.
