Used by NASA, ILM, Disney and hardware hackers, Python is a versatile programming language and an ideal choice for beginners. Whether you’re just  creating a “Hello World” or a full-blown application, Python needs an interpreter and a bunch of supporting libraries to work. What if we could make a GUI application, all bundled inside of a single executable file?

With auto-py-to-exe ,a project by Brent Vollebregt we can easily create our own executable Python applications. Underneath the GUI is PyInstaller, a terminal based application to create Python executables for Windows, Mac and Linux. Veteran Pythonistas will be familiar with how PyInstaller works, but with auto-py-to-exe any user can easily create a single Python executable for their system.
