eGenix Talks: eGenix PyRun

EuroPython 2012 - eGenix PyRun - The one file Python runtime

Freezing the Python interpreter with an almost complete Python standard library into a single easy-to-use executable.

eGenix PyRun is our one file, no installation version of Python, making the distribution of a Python interpreter to run based scripts and applications to Unix based systems as simple as copying a single file.

The executable is only 11MB in size, does not require a system wide installation, but still supports most Python application and scripts.

Compared to a regular Python installation of typically 100MB on disk, eGenix PyRun is ideal for applications and scripts that need to be distributed to several target machines, client installations or customers.

It makes "installing" Python on a Unix based system as simple as copying a single file.
