bdist_nsi 0.1.5

Create NSIS windows installers for Python modules.

The bdist_nsi module extends Python's distutils module with a bdist_nsi setup command to create binary Windows installers for Python modules, based on NSIS. Thereby, bdist_nsi brings all the features of NSIS to Windows installers for Python modules, such as silent install, modern user interface, and internationalization.

In action

Take a look at the screenshots.

What you need

Besides Python and the bdist_nsi module, you will need NSIS. It can be run under windows and linux (see NSIS forum for instructions).

Installation

The latest version can always be downloaded from https://sourceforge.net/projects/bdist-nsi/files.

To install from source, simply run:

python setup.py install

Usage

Add bdist_nsi option to your setup.py file.

In your projects setup.py:

try:
    import bdist_nsi
except ImportError:
    pass

nsis_options = {} # your nsis options
setup(
    name='your application name',
    version='0.0.x',
    author='your name',
    author_email='your email',
    url='http://yourdomain.com/',
    options={'bdist_nsi': nsis_options, },
    license='your license',) # your setup options

You can create installer python setup.py bdist_nsi command.

If the makensis executable is not installed in one of the usual locations (/usr/bin, C:\Program Files\NSIS, or C:\Program Files (x86)\NSIS), then you can specify the NSIS folder with the --nsis-dir option, or just add -k to have a look at the temporary generated files.

Development
