Documentation

pyinstailor

pyinstailor is a tailor to replace files directly in the executable file generated by PyInstaller. Sometimes the script is changed a little, for example, only refine log messages, no dependency changed, no analysis is required. In this case, pyinstailor could extract the executable, replace the old script with new one, then repack it.

Usage

pyinstailor.py [-h] [-d] [-s N] executable [files]

Examples

  • List all the available items in the archive

      pyinstailor dist/foo.exe
    
  • Replace entry script "foo.py" in the bundle "foo.exe"

      pyinstailor dist/foo.exe foo.py
    
  • If entry scrip is in other path, strip the first N path

      pyinstailor -s 1 dist/foo.exe src/foo.py
    
  • Replace package file reader/__init__.py in the bundle "foo.exe"

      pyinstailor dist/foo.exe reader/__init__.py
    
  • Strip the first path in the file path

      pyinstailor -s 2 dist/foo.exe ../../reader/__init__.py
    

This tool doesn't support PyInstaller 2.0, and it's not full test.
