problem with pyinstaller: packaging multiple python scripts under Mac

B

Boxuan Cui

This is my first time using pyinstaller. My goal is to build an .app in Mac. The app is basically a GUI written in PySide, and I have about 7 different Python scripts + 1 .png file. The main file calls 4 of the files, and the 4 files will call the rest of the 2 files repeatedly. The ..png file is nothing but the window logo. Could someone help me with some diagnosis? I do not know what went wrong. I searched a lot of documentations online, i.e., change spec, add import, ... etc. but my app still doesn't run.

FYI, Pyinstaller could generate an app for me, but there are two issues:
1. Icon is not changed for the app.
2. App crashes when opened.

My Python version is 2.7.5 and I am using PyInstaller-2.0. Here is my code for packaging:
python pyinstaller.py --onefile --windowed --name=MyApplication -i ~/Documents/AASource/icon.ico ~/Documents/AASource/Scripts/main_file.py
Here is the spec file:
# -*- mode: python -*-
a = Analysis(['/Users/boxuancui/Documents/AASource/Scripts/main_file.py'],
pathex=['/Users/boxuancui/Documents/pyinstaller-2.0'],
hiddenimports=[],
hookspath=None)
pyz = PYZ(a.pure)
exe = EXE(pyz,
a.scripts,
a.binaries,
a.zipfiles,
a.datas,
name=os.path.join('dist', 'MyApplication'),
debug=False,
strip=None,
upx=True,
console=False , icon='/Users/boxuancui/Documents/AASource/icon.ico')
app = BUNDLE(exe,
name=os.path.join('dist', 'MyApplication.app'))
Here is part of the crash message:
Crashed Thread: 0 Dispatch queue: com.apple.main-thread

Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x00000000000054d8
Thanks in advance! Any help will be appreciated!


Best,
Boxuan
