Building Pyinstaller Packages Locally

We use Pyinstaller to build executables that do not require Python to be installed on a system. These are built by Travis CI for distribution to ensure a consistent environment but they can also be build locally for testing.

Prerequisites

These need to be installed globally so they are not included in the Pipfile.

  • setuptools==45.2.0

  • virtualenv==16.7.9

  • pipenv==2018.11.26

Process

  1. Export OS_NAME environment variable for your system (ubuntu-latest, macos-latest, or windows-latest).

  2. Execute make build_pyinstaller_file or make build_pyinstaller_folder from the root of the repo.

The output of these commands can be found in ./artifacts
