idea for a community program
what do you think about doing a python file with gui that helps begginers in python to make executable files.
I mean a good little program with many options for the advvanced programs too...
maybe for you isnt a great idea but since this is one of the most common issues in the forum well i think it would be great... i mean a command line program would be usefull to, i dont know nothing about programming was just an idea
i leave you here my stupid part
i took the setup.py from this forum dont yellow at me for that
i would be add more options for images, sound etc
from distutils.core import setup
import py2exe, sys
Make sure this file is in the same folder as the script you want to compile
script = raw_input("Input the name of the script you want to 'exelizar' : ")
#Appends py2exe to the list of command like arguments. This makes it
#possible to run the setup file by double clicking on it.
#Create a console application from the file named in the 'console'
setup(console = [script])

I think its a nice Idea, though the questions about how to run py2exe from the command line would be replaced with questions about the GUI . Still, I'll talk it over with some peoples and see what they think of the idea. Shouldn't take two long to hack something up anyway.

As a project I like the idea and was seriously thinking about this too as a whole sort of Python Project Manager plugin and front-end (PPM [tm grim 2004 ] to IDLE.
But who keeps putting py2exe in their heads? It's way too soon for most of them to be thinking about it. ( I hope nobody takes that too personally )

I for one take that very personally . Really lol. Anyway, hate to tell you this Grim, but PPM was already snatched up by Activestate for there PerlPackageManager; I think they have a PyPM too but I'm not 100% on that since I don't use the ActivePython dist' myself .

I think that using py2exe from the very beginning is not the best idea for people who are trying to learn the language. That's my opinion. The idae is good, but I would not do that exclusively as a beginner's tool... rather as a tool for someone who has a solid knowledge of Python.
