 Using PyInstaller in PyCharm
#1
This question might have gotten lost in the other thread so here it is again.

I was able to get PyInstaller to work from the command line (thanks for the replies!), but that's only for Python 2.7.

So now, I'm trying to get it working inside PyCharm, but so far, not quite.

I've imported both PyIntaller and PyInstaller Hooks.

My setup.py code looks like this:

import PyInstaller as pyinstaller
from binaryfilesearch import SearchBinaryFile

pyinstaller  SearchBinaryFile.py
Yet, I get a ...

setup.py", line 4
pyinstaller SearchBinaryFile.py
^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


=====

Any suggestions on what I need to do I can build a standalone file using PyInstaller within PyCharm (so I can use 3.6 with f-strings, etc.)?

Thanks again.

I don't know why it has to work from within PyCharm.
All pycharm can do it run the OS version.
That's an IDE, not an OS. If it works from command line, use that.
And if it won't work for python 3, you probably need a python 3 version.

Command line seems like the way to go. Just making sure.

So, I have python3 installed, and I installed Pyinstaller within the IDE for Python3, but how would I run pyinstaller under python3 at the command line when the default python at the command line is 2.7?

Adding Pyinstaller to PyCharm can be done by adding it as an external tool:

Adding tool:
------------

  1. In Pycharm - File->Settings->Tools->External Tools
  2. Click on the '+' sign to add a new tool (if it is the first tool you add, just fill the form, no need for the '+')
  3. Fill the fields:
    Name: Pyinstaller
    Description: Generate a single executable
    Program: \pyinstaller.exe $FileName$ (Make sure that Pyinstaller is recognized in PyCharm Project...)
    Arguments: --onefile
    Working directory: $FileDir$\dist


Using the tool
--------------

In PyCharm: Tools->External Tools->Pyinstaller

The exe file will appear on a dist subfolder of the .py file folder
