Download pyinstaller 1.5 from http://www.pyinstaller.org/
First, unpack the archives (pyinstaller-1.5.zip and ApicoAMPxx.zip) on your path of choice. (Installer is not a Python package, so it doesn't need to go in site-packages)
Open the Terminal app, change directories to the location of "pyinstaller-1.5", and type the following commands in order:
python Makespec.py --onefile pathToApicoAMP/ApicoAMP_GUI.py
Note: pathToApicoAMP in this command should be replaced by the path ApicoAMP_GUI.py resides. This command will prepare a spec file, and the path/name of the prepared spec file will be printed to the screen, this path/name should be provided to the next command
- Before running the next command, add the following lines at the end of the spec file prepared with the previous command:
import sys if sys.platform.startswith("darwin"): app = BUNDLE(exe, name=os.path.join('dist', 'NAME.app'), version=version)
and run the following command:
```python Build.py pathToSpecfile/specfile```
Note: pathToSpecfile/specfile in this command should be replaced by the path/name of the spec file prepared by the last command. These commands should create a folder under "pyinstaller-1.5" folder named "ApicoAMP". Under "ApicoAMP/dist" folder, ApicoAMP.app should reside. Copy this file under the folder "ApicoAMP" (in which ApicoAMP_GUI.py resides) and launch it from there.
