    Hi,

    I am very new to Python but find it very interesting (from what I know
    of it) and am considering writing an application. However, I have a
    question regarding distribution of the app once it is done. Is there
    a way to package everything a user needs to run the app or will they
    have to install Python their machine? This is probably an obvious
    question but most development I do is for administrative tasks on
    servers and such, not usually development of an app for someone else.

    Thanks for your help.

    There is a variety of packaging programs. For Windows, you can use
    py2app and py2exe. I think the former can also be used for Mac and
    maybe Linux. If you are doing it on Windows, I would recommend
    packaging it with one of those and then using something like Inno
    Setup to create an installer.
