 pyinstaller exe size
#1
Smile 
notice the exe and other files generate by Pyinstaller is really big file size,

my script is 2k but the file generated is 500MB. Cry
how to reduce the size?

Reducing the imports. If you've big modules, they are also put into the distribution.
Which imports do you have?

A normal small script with example using Tkinter.
Pyinstaller make a single .exe around 8-10MB.
As mention bye DeaD_EyE have to look at your import,at whats needed and what can be excluded.

i would like to import modules below; how I code it for smaller size? i am using pyinstaller.

from tkinter import *
from tkinter import filedialog
import tkinter.ttk as ttk
import os
import pandas as pd
import glob
from pandas import ExcelWriter
from pandas import ExcelFile

If your doing pandas under anaconda, try not using anaconda to build the exe.

You using pandas that can have a lot of dependencies.
Like is using Numpy+MKL(it can use 200mb) more that may not be need.
So just install numpy alone.

To have control over dependencies must use virtual environment.
I have tested with all your import and my file size with all for one .exe file is 23.4MB.

Here is the whole setup,i use virtual environment that's build into 3.6.
There are basic dependencies that pandas need.
Dependencies:
  • setuptools
  • NumPy: 1.9.0 or higher
  • python-dateutil: 1.5 or higher
  • pytz: Needed for time zone support

Setup virtual environment,i use cmder but is just the same commands in cmd:
# Make
E:\1py_div
λ python -m venv build_env

# cd in
E:\1py_div
λ cd build_env

# Activate
E:\1py_div\build_env
λ E:\1py_div\build_env\Scripts\Activate
(build_env) E:\1py_div\build_env

# Install pyinstaller
λ pip install pyinstaller

I place my work_data.py(that use pandas) in environment to make sure that all import work.
I build with:
(build_env) E:\1py_div\build_env
λ pyinstaller -F work_data.py
There is a problem:
Error:
No module named 'pandas._libs.tslibs.timedeltas'
Open spec(auto generated every time run pyinstaller) file and add:
hiddenimports=['pandas._libs.tslibs.timedeltas'],
Now run spec file:
(build_env) E:\1py_div\build_env
λ pyinstaller --clean work_data.spec
Finish i have one work_data.exe that run pandas and size is 23.4MB.

I follow all instructions and manage to generate exe without Error and it is 200MB. Confused
did I miss out something? Wall
possible to further minimize the size?

You most have,what the size of you build_env folder?
Mine are 174MB this is with all libraries and the build work_data.exe 23.4MB.
All should be run from that folder,you can check site-packages folder,
and see that pandas ans numpy has normal size pandas(43mb), numpy(27MB).

When virtual environment is activate all should be used from that folder.
I use cmder who has which command.
# Activate you must see (build_env)
λ E:\1py_div\build_env\Scripts\Activate

# See that only this folder is used
(build_env) E:\1py_div\build_env
λ pip -V
pip 9.0.1 from e:\1py_div\build_env\lib\site-packages (python 3.6)

(build_env) E:\1py_div\build_env
λ which python
/e/1py_div/build_env/Scripts/python

(build_env) E:\1py_div\build_env
λ which pyinstaller
/e/1py_div/build_env/Scripts/pyinstaller
Can you post your whole scripts not just the imports?

I notice my site-packages folder is empty and the exe file is in dist folder;İmage

and is return <root> instead of " <build_env>" after activate it; İmage
.
u can click the image link for full image. will pm the full script to u.

I have tested with code you send me,and i make a working .exe of that code with size of 23.4MB.

The problem is that you are doing something wrong when making the environment.
Here is all step taken from cmd,run cmd as  administrator.
Python version used is 3.6 as shown in tutorial here and part-2 has info about virtual environment.

Start cmd
Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.15063]
(c) 2017 Microsoft Corporation. Med enerett.

C:\WINDOWS\system32>cd\
C:\>e:

# Make folder Test3
E:\>mkdir Test3

# cd into folder
E:\>cd Test3

# Make virtual environment 
E:\Test3>python -m venv build_env

# cd into build folder
E:\Test3>cd build_env

# Activate environment 
E:\Test3\build_env>E:\Test3\build_env\Scripts\activate.bat

# See (build_env) and test that pip use this folder
(build_env) E:\Test3\build_env>pip -V
pip 9.0.1 from e:\test3\build_env\lib\site-packages (python 3.6)

Now it work continue first with Pandas dependencies as shown before in post.
